There is a full-scale Starship on the launch pad in South Texas! This thing is going to attempt to fly to 15 kilometers. 😱

Super proud of everyone at for breaking 150k subscribers on YouTube! As the main person who creates thumbnails each day, it's fun to look back at where we started just months ago and compare to where we are now. Quite the difference but still always evolving!

Already pre-ordered via Jeff. Wonder if we'll get it faster via the local distributor? 🤔

I personally don't think so. Plan was always to fly this one with three, and not do a repeat 150m single Raptor hop. If they needed more 150m hop tests they would have re-used SN5/6. Probably just an engine changeout/inspection/swap based on SF data. Still was a good test.

Yeah, as above. Not the BC Raptors, the McGregor max testing Raptors.
