Booster 10 is being lifted off the OLM following its Static Fire test on Friday. This is not unexpected and part of the pre-launch flow.

Next will likely be rollback of B10 and S28 for final work before returning to the launch site for integrated stack testing and then launch.

Heading down onto the transport stand. We got a good eyeful of the Raptor 200 club.

B10 has been removed from the OLM.
She's now on the booster transport stand that moved over earlier today.

Gee, I thought I posted shots of the transporter movement yesterday unless it got deleted. So here are some highlights from the close call to hitting/squashing a parked car.  In case people were wondering why so close, there was a K-rail barrier on the other side of the road and the SPMT operator was hugging that and had that helper keep him informed of the clearance. The other of the car was fortunate that the vehicle wasn't any taller.  Police were ahead of the procession getting drivers to move even when the vehicles were on the safe side of the traffic cones.

I had an experience early in life where I had to close the trucking facility I worked at on my own ( I was working OT) and resorted to using a forklift to move an employee car that prohibited me from closing the main gate.  Both fun and tense at the same time.  I'm sure there was one ready here to be utilized if needed. 

PS: those other vehicles that seem to be in the way, in that first picture, were beyond the driveway entrance.

Some highlights on the Starship side of the All Hands.

Flight 2 Ship 25 EOM:

"So Flight 2 actually almost made it to orbit. In fact, ironically, if it had a payload, it would have made it to orbit, because the reason that it actually didn't quite make it to orbit was we vented the liquid oxygen, and the liquid oxygen ultimately led to fire and an explosion. Because we wanted to vent the liquid oxygen because we normally wouldn't have that liquid oxygen if we had a payload.

"So ironically, if it had a payload, it would have reached orbit. And so I think we've got a really good shot of reaching orbit with flight three and then a rapid cadence to achieve full and rapid reusability."

Flight 3:

"Flight three, we want to get to orbit and we want to do an in-space engine burn from the header tank and prove that we can reliably de-orbit." (Many references to the importance to NASA Artemis. Wants to overachieve and make Moon Base Alpha a reality).

Two Towers at Starbase:

"So this is we're going to really be launching a lot and up and we're going to be upgrading one tower while we launch from another tower. So two towers is important."

Point to Point:

"It's going to fly a lot. It has to fly a lot. So it's going to end up flying several times a day from many different locations in the world. And I think there's a pretty good chance that it does Earth-to-Earth transport as well. Because the fastest way to get from one place to another on Earth is, you know, to get from here to the other side of Earth is an intercontinental ballistic missile, but just make sure you delete the nuke and add the landing part. Basically, it's the fastest way to get somewhere."

Other notes include Version 2 of Ship and Version 3. Talk of 150 meters as how much the vehicle could stretch to. Also, a lot of "make life interplanetary" Mars references.

Starship 28 had at least one Raptor engine removed today and possibly swapped for a new one. Another static fire required before launch?

The FAA is on pace to issue a Starship launch license mid to late February, Iím told, in what is shaping up to be a busy month. Intuitive Machines plans to launch in time for a Feb. 22 lunar landing, which is the same day Crew-8 is scheduled to launch. Caveats about delays, etc.
