    I was watching a Boca Chica video yesterday and Mary zoomed in on a load cell in the lifting apparatus as a crane hoisted S/N 9. It read 13,020, for the one of six legs. The total weight is therefore about 78,120. Of something. Pounds? Kilos? Don't know!
    I'm thinking probably pounds. It is, after all, basically an empty shell.

    And a launch scheduled from Vandenberg in the morning, as well.

    Sentinel 6

    Well, those NASA folks sitting outside around a card table had a helluva view of launch and the RTLS landing! Impressed, they were.

    But the lack of SpaceX informatics was annoying!

    Agreed. I'd rather have SpaceXers do it, but it was NASA & ESA's bird.

    "Informatics"???? What I meant was, of course, "infographics". Or something.

    I'm seeing 9:56PM EST for the Starlink launch this evening.

    "SCRUB. SpaceX says it is standing down from tonight’s Falcon 9 launch attempt at Cape Canaveral “for additional mission assurance.”"

    As long as it's not for additional mission insurance...
    With sufficient thrust, water towers fly just fine.

    The FAA is evaluating a new Environmental Assessment for Starship launches from Boca Chica.This is expected because Starship & Super Heavy are far more powerful than Falcon 9 or Falcon Heavy. Much of the acoustic, blast, and other modelling necessary should be transferrable from the updated KSC LC-39A EA published last year.

    https://www.faa.gov/news/updates/?newsId=96139

    SpaceX has informed the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) that it plans to apply for licenses for suborbital and orbital launches of its Starship spacecraft powered by the Super Heavy rocket at its launch site in Boca Chica, Texas.

    The proposed update to Starship/Super Heavy operations falls outside of the scope of the existing final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Record of Decision for the launch site and requires additional environmental review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

    The FAA is in the beginning stages of conducting the environmental review of the SpaceX proposal and developing a public outreach plan. The FAA intends to provide scoping information for the project soon.

    SpaceX is working with the FAA to prepare a draft Environmental Assessment (EA) which will be subject to the FAA’s evaluation and approval.

    The EA will allow the FAA to determine the appropriate course of action: preparation of an EIS because the proposed action’s environmental impacts would be significant; issuance of a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI); or issuance of a “Mitigated FONSI” providing for mitigation measures to address the proposed action’s environmental impacts. The FAA may make its determination during the EA process or after SpaceX presents a draft EA for FAA approval.

    To receive the licenses, SpaceX must complete a safety review and develop agreements for the license application in addition to the environmental review.

    Information about the FAA environmental review process as it relates to commercial space transportation is posted at faa.gov/space/environmental
