Musk on Starship development: Building the production system so we can build ultimately hundreds or thousands of Starships that's the hard part. But we're making good progress on the production system

Video: While Starship SN6's hop has been delayed until Thursday, SN7.1 is nearly ready to head to the pad for testing, and the High Bay is preparing for a roof.

I noticed another barrel section with stringers out near the nosecones this morning.
Rings out between the mid bay and tents 1 and 2.
Transporting a partial roll of stainless steel.
Still working on SN7.1.

A sign of future intent as a huge amount of steel that will make up future Starships and possibly allocated to the prototype Super Heavy was on show at Boca Chica.

 I hope somebody knows where all this stuff goes.
 It looks like there are two 5 ring high stringered sections. Maybe for unpressurized nosecones.
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Starship Schedule:

SN6 hop Thursday 🚀 (weather and wind good)

SN7 Tank pressure test Sunday 💥 (weather not so good 🌧)

weather.gov/bro/

High chance of thunderstorms Saturday but with a long test window can hopefully find a time slot that’s ok for a pressure test.

New TFRs have posted for the SN6 test flight.  They cover Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and reach to 26,000 ft (like previous 150m hops):
