Starship SN15 was hooked up to the LR 11000 crane ahead of being lifted off Suborbital Pad B. Work on the Orbital Launch Site, Super Heavy BN3, and the High Bay Bar continued.

Spotted a section with an unusual side opening. Don't know what it's for.

Q: "Why is order of LOX and CH4 opposite on starship and super heavy?"

Elon: "They are now the same (LOX below CH4). Ox is 3.5 times heavier than fuel, so makes sense to have it lower."

After becoming the first Starship prototype to land without exploding, Starship SN15 was rolled back to the Production Site. SN15's fate is unknown at this time.

The BN3 stack was either moved inside the high bay or stacked on the next section.

Via LabPadre's Sentinel Cam

Looks like another BN3 stack down - or at least preparations for the next one. From this perspective, BN3 is currently 15 (+/- 1) rings tall.
