Given that the police are not located at the standard roadblock location and subcoolers are not running and yet they're doing some pad testing... I'm gonna go ahead and guess this was sent probably when they were planning to do a static fire but that's no longer the case.

Still... we gotta keep our eyes on what may happen at Starbase because one never knows what may happen. I  personally think we may not see it today but who knows!

Cones have been removed from in front of Booster 10's transport stand and I spot two drivers connecting the SPMTs together. Seems like it's about to move, maybe even for a destack of the Booster.

Booster 10's transport stand has been positioned at the Booster lift area near the Orbital Launch Mount. Yikes.

So the good news is that it looks like B10 doesn’t need to be removed from the OLM:

Booster 10's transport stand rolled back to its original storage area. That's even more confusing...

Starbase's Orbital Launch Site is enjoying a vent party, as they test the tank farm.

The road is open, and thus, there is no major testing today, but hopefully this is setting the stage for a Static Fire of Booster 10 in the near future.

Busy Starbase!

The road is closed.

Orbital Launch Site is preparing for Booster 10 Static Fire. We'll be live commentary for that.

And the tower segment is arriving from KSC.

OK! So it's all going on! Booster 10 and Ship 28 look like they are set to be tested today, while Ship 29 rolls, Booster 12 is at Masseys and a tower segment sails into Brownsville. Phew!

Live commentary:
