 Looks like a booster thrust section about to get sleeved.
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Starship SN11 receives its nosecone section in the High Bay! It will be next in line for testing after SN10. Also spotted was Super Heavy BN1's aft dome on the sleeving stand and SN10 waves its aft flaps.

What’s your biggest priority with Starship right now? What currently feels like the most uphill battle or most urgent problem to solve?

1. Orbital launch tower that can stack
2. Enough Raptors for orbit booster
3. Improve ship & booster mass

Starship SN10's tanks were tested with liquid nitrogen and pressurized to near flight pressures to ensure its tanks and systems are ready for flight.

 The booster thrust dome has a skirt.
