I assume it will slip a couple weeks, but still a pretty good turn around

Yeah, I think we can expect a static fire, engine swap, another static fire, some more checks, etc. My bet is 2 weeks from now.

I never find April fools very funny tbh, especially not half a month late. Didn't take me very long to find no evidence of the above, but have to filter out enough fake news without also having to contend with it from trusted sources.

SN15 is fine.

I always do my April Fools half a month late. It catches people off guard that way.

And that's Tax Day so it's appropriate.

Sorry. :(

If I am a trustworthy source 99.9% of the time then it does make that 1-in-1000 prank all the more believable, I suppose.

Reducing the propellant load can't possibly hurt things 

Of course it can. Changing *anything* can hurt things.

For example, it says they *may* have been loading too much oxygen. That means they *may* *not* have been loading too much oxygen, right?

Back of an envelope calc suggests that's between 130kg and 1000kg extra LOX depending on whether it's extra inches in the cylindrical part of the tank or right at the top of the dome.

On the second stage that would be a 1 to 1 payload increase. Even an extra 200kg is significant.

On the first stage that's interesting but not really a huge deal.

If the same procedure is used on both tanks it could be an error for both.

BRUH....

I wouldn't change that, especially not during an human flight, not after it worked 100+ times

If you find a risk and just keep rolling the dice because you didn't lose 100 times, you're just asking for something to go wrong.

Off the top of my head, I can think of ALL the NASA crew losses as an example.

This is also a response on the thread

 

As now the truth is revealed, there are the questions:

Any known new contracts between Space-X and Coca-Cola?
Any unusual Coca-Cola barrels in Boca-Chica?
Any strange guys in face masks, dark sunglasses, and Coca-Cola robes around?

 

P.S.

I really don't see this causing that..

Me neither, but I'm referring to the flaw in this logic: "I wouldn't change that, especially not during an human flight, not after it worked 100+ times"
