Post B7 extended static fire and the OLM legs don't look too bad. OK, so it was only one engine, but not bad for a 20 second firing.

B7 is getting ready to be removed from the OLM. After yesterdays 21 second static fire, it is now time for more Raptor engines to be installed!

Booster 7 is on the transport mount. They'll need to detach the crane's loadspreader before rollback (to the Production Site for Center Engines).

Rollback could potentially it could still happen today.

#SpaceX moved 13 Gimbaling Raptor 2 engines to the Megabay overnight!

#Booster7 Static Fire testing must have exceeded expectations because they are now preparing to transport it back to production and QUICKLY install the remaining engines.

Let the surge begin! 🚀

With two successful static fires under its belt, Booster 7 is rolled back to the Production Site for installation of its 13 Raptor center engines. Meanwhile, Ship 25's Methane Transfer Tube was installed.

Filmed during an exciting week of static fire testing at SpaceX Starbase, a new addition to The Road to Mars Cinema Archive. Headphones on! In this video, we see and hear Starship Super Heavy Booster 7 conduct two separate single raptor engine tests, including the first 20-second long duration static fire on the orbital launchpad. Ship 24 is also filmed in highspeed conducting a two-engine test as it prepares for eventual stacking and orbital flight. Incredible audio capture throughout by the Cosmic Perspective's team Andrew Keating. We're designing an audio experience page for our website to explore the often overlooked amazing sounds of spaceflight in more detail.
