Vents have been closed for over 7 minutes now. This thing could pop at any second (or not, we donít know the scope of todayís test). Godspeed little doodle. @NASASpaceflight

The vents on the GSE test tank have been closed for over 23 minutes, the frost has even started to recede a bit. Iíd guess this bodes well for the construction methods used on the Orbital Tank Farm. @NASASpaceflight

The GSE Test Tank underwent cryo testing, a new 3.6 mm barrel section was spotted, Raptor engines continue to be installed on Booster 4, and a Circumhorizontal Arc appeared over Boca Chica.

Video + Photos by Mary (@BocaChicaGal) and the NSF robots for @NASASpaceflight.
