 It looks like the section with all the heat tiles that came out of tent 3 will be a base for the next nose.
 The next SN or gse tank or whatever it is has started rising in Midbay.
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Spotted a new Raptor engine getting delivered ahead of SN15's flight today with @austinbarnard45 . Did not catch a number, but it is marked "INSERT MEME HERE". The guy running this joke must be short on ideas today 😅

Meanwhile, Starship SN16 is taking shape in the High Bay. The nosecone is attached to the new Bridge Crane.

Starship Production Cadence is forever impressive.

 Got SN16's nose up there and sort of stalled out.
 Film at 11.
