Interesting dome.
SpaceX's black and white cat. The first time I saw the cat was way back when Mk1 was being built.

04.24.2021 It may not seem like much but SpaceX Boca Chica, Texas is now testing unstacked nose cones. It appears today they activated the RCS thrusters at 1:46 PM local time behind the Iron Henge building. This seems to be an obvious push to ramp up the Starship project's progress Exciting times are a head!
