I waited all yesterday for this moment, and finally caught Raptor being installed onto S20 after the sun went down. Video of the lift will be included in today’s daily video. So, keep your eyes peeled!📸 for @NASASpaceflight
More tile work, anyone?Ya know, I’m starting to see more OK’s than colored tape. That seems like a good thing. 👌📸 for @NASASpaceflight
“The shady side of #Starship”As hot as it is out here, I’d want to work on the shady side, too!
So, it appears Booster 4 could rollout of the High Bay tomorrow (per preps and road closure). Meanwhile, Booster 5 is being prepared for stacking.
Looks like Booster 5’s aft dome is getting sleeved today!- @NASASpaceflight
