These thrust pucks always seem to take a wrong turn on the way in. Good thing I was there to point them to the dome yard.🤣

Looks like this new #SpaceX Starship booster thrust plate also has the two mystery holes. Still haven't seen confirmation on what these are for? Would love to know.

Also, has it ever been confirmed what these two big ports are for? The assumption has been that these are access hatches that are sealed up, but I am not certain that has ever been totally confirmed either.

B10 thrust dome section. Didn't even have time enough to get warmed up by the sun before it went back inside the tent.

As SpaceX gears up for more Ship 24 testing, the water deluge system at Suborbital Pad B was tested. This system protects from sound vibrations during engine testing.
