On that note, SN15 will be heading for the test pad in the next few days by the road closure permits, and it appears that parts for BN2 are coming together nicely.

Going to be a REAL interesting next few years!

That was amazing!

I still wish they could sort the cameras for the landing in I Still Love You.

The actual touching down is more amazing to me than the touched down.

On that very last separation of the Star Link satellites...

That huge cluster was all 60, and they'll separated, space, and find their own orbits?

This whole thing is incredible, from 'I want to build rockets' to where we are now.

My favorite moment is still the two boosters (?) sticking the twin landings, earlier on.

Freakin' awesome!




Two for two, I'm good now.

Yup! Their little bitty ion engines slowly move them to their correct orbit over the next few months...
Last count I read was that there are now 1,320 Starlink satellites in orbit (with around 100 or so having been de-orbited intentionally due to malfunction, or being early "beta" units).
They have six more Starlink flights manifested for the next couple months, and I suspect there will be more made public in a month or so.

Paul, Thanks for keeping up on these launches. I too marvel at what they are doing. I did not realize the size involved. I think that the truck carrying it is pretty impressive too. Seeing the operator from the back made me think of the guy with his remote control gathering grocery carts from the parking lot.
