The crew are currently cutting around the upper portion of Starship SN5. It appears SN5 will suffer the same fate as SN6. RIP SN5. 🚀

SN7.2: "Let me sing the song of my people!" At LabPadre's Launch Pad cam.

Also they just held venting for a little bit, probably carefully watching pressure rise.

 Good view today. Windy as heck.
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

 An older photo from the bay side. I don't see any vents there, so I'm guessing a split seam.

 It looks like it was full and liquid coming out when they shut off the vents about 4 minutes before the self creating vent opened up.

Apparently it had more than one burst in the same ring seam.
