Elon, I love you because now I know that someone who likes nonsense memes can be a bilionaire and change the world. Thank you for that.

I do like nonsense memes. It’s true.

Now that you’ve got those awesome new raptors down at McGregor, what needs to be done before they get integrated onto StarHopper? Like is there a dozen hot fires? Do you ramp up thrust on this new engine? I can’t imagine firing up a newly designed engine for the first time 😳

Man you're fast at typing Tim. Do you have a raspberry pie set to sound a klaxon when Elon is on Twitter? πŸ˜‚

It’s heavier, stronger, takes up less room, & is much more temp tolerant βœ¨πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€βœ¨ thx

It’s only heavier on paper! It gets much lighter when you factor in its high temp capabilities πŸ™Œ like this Delta stainless steel tank that survived reentry. Other rocket parts go bye bye through reentry!

How will Starship dock and refuel with those huge fins in the way?

How come?

the entire system is lighter due to not needing as much heat shielding AND the thrust of raptor seems to have gone up, so we’re looking at less gravity loss = more payload capability πŸ‘

Now that's really delightfully counter intuitive!

Broken thread. For those who are wondering, question was: "Is the payload capacity reduced with the extra stainless steel mass?"
