SpaceX teams moved an aft section for the Super Heavy prototype "BN1" to the Highbay on Friday ahead of stacking operations. Meanwhile, new components for other prototypes including Starship SN19's methane header tank were also spotted.

A nose (maybe SN15’s) was moved out of the tent overnight and is now by the barrel section. Interestingly it looks like it has had its top removed.  ???

So stoked ! One of my closest friends just called and said he’s moving down to build some kind of 450’ tall structure at Boca 🤪 🚀

Missed this update yesterday:

...Starts work in 3-4 weeks, one year contract... working 7/12’s so we won’t be surfing together much. Gotta admire the hardworking dedication of SpaceX employees.
