It's a windy dusty day here. A bulkhead section was rotated and flipped in the high bay this morning.

Looks like John Randolph found the bottom of the skirt inside the white tent. Or maybe it's a 3 ring stack and we can't see the bottom one

SpaceX is wasting little time in preparing the Starship SN2 sections for mating, including bulkheads, while work takes place to clear the remains of Starship SN1.

There’s a puck at the base that takes the engine thrust load. Don’t shuck the puck!

We’re stripping SN2 to bare minimum to test the thrust puck to dome weld under pressure, first with water, then at cryo. Hopefully, ready to test in a few days.

The next Starship - to be used for proof testing - is being assembled inside the Boca Chica windbreak. Some hardware (new nosecone) will likely be allocated to SN3.
