SpaceX has cleared the pad decks of both Suborbital Pad B and the Orbital Launch Mount. With an alert notice in effect, static fire testing of both S24 and B7 is possible. Now waiting for final personnel to clear the area and for the roadblock to go up.

Just throwing in a quick note: Pad B is NOT clear, so no static fire testing from S24 today.

Orbital launch mount chilldown has begun. Static fire occurred a little over two hours from this point on Tuesday. We will see what happens today!

Potential small engine chill venting from B7. Testing may happen very soon.

The left side of the orbital launch mount is now venting in what looks like an engine chill bleed line. This is a new spot as compared to what we saw two days ago. Could indicate different engine(s) will be fired today.

LOX subcoolers are spooling up and the orbital launch mount is venting again. Could they be going again!?!

And now the support van is lining up at the roadblock. I think this tank farm thing was a false alarm. We'll see.

NSF have wound down their commentary stream for now.

Cars are back to pad, but roadblock is still up. Focus seems to be on the suborbital tank farm. (Per LabPadre Rover 2)

Cameron County website reports beach is open, and sheriff is dismantling the roadblock. Looks like we're done for today.
