SN15 has Landed!

Updates later... I'm off work in ten minutes, and have to run something over to the office first.

Important thing; no explosion!

Starship is about 50m tall if memory serves. It's about the size of the liquid fuel tank on the Spaceshuttle. But you need to remember that eventually it will sit atop the Booster, that will make it bigger than the Saturn V.

This is an earlier model of the Starship (which, itself, is only the upper stage).
Notice the people to the lower left...
It's HUGE. And the first stage Booster (as yet, never stacked with Starship.... probably in a few months) is bigger yet.

It's tough to wrap your head around how BIG they are.
