Crews work to extend Frankencrane's boom in preparation for more Launch Tower sections to be rolled to the Launch Site. Meanwhile, more Super Heavy sections are spotted outside.

Work continues at pace on the Orbital Launch Site, while the aft dome of SN20 - potentially for the Starship set to fly on the orbital test - was spotted.

Can anyone offer some insight into why they seem to be removing the staircase sections from the integration tower?  I get that they have the elevator - but doesn't it seem like it'd make sense - even if just for backup and as a safety valve - to have a staircase as well? 

The only guess I have is that they've realized that if there is a staircase, it may be required to have railings or other safety equipment to be compliant with various workplace safety regs, and it's just too much of a hassle to comply.

This is not the discussion thread. That's next door. Updates only here.
