Ouch. That's worse than having to fish it out from the sea. Stronger net needed. Or maybe two nets one under another? First to slow the fairing, second to save it from smashing into hard elements protruding from the deck, if first net fails.

Attach the middle of the rubber string to the ship.

Next Starlink launch in 3 days, lol.

And if it launches on time it will shave I think 3 days off the fastest turnaround.

Wikipedia says B1058 Demo-II to ANASIS-II was 1m 20d, but that month includes May 31st (51d).

B1060 L11 to L14 would be 1m 18d but September was only 30d long, so 48d.

 

At least until B1058 reclaims the title in November with CRS21!

Road closed (and pad possibly cleared). It may be static fire time (or at least a preburner test)!

Edit: Tank farm now venting.

Yup, that definitely wasn't the full fury of even one Raptor. Preburners.

Hopefully it was successful and they can move on to the first 3 Raptor static fire! :D

Appears to have been a preburner test. No detanking yet. May recycle for additional testing later in the window. It has also been noticed that the "triangle" venting usually starts really close to 12 minutes before the test.

EDIT: Literally right as I posted I heard them say "Detanking now" lol

Still several hours left in the window, and detanking appears to have stopped. They might recycle and go for a static fire.
