S20 fairing hatch is closed, the pad is almost clear and Mary received the notice. The closure only starts in 3 hours, but it looks like they could finally static fire it this time!

We don't know if it will be a 6 or 3 engines SF (all are installed), but there are engineering concerns over wether the suborbital stand can survive the thrust of 6 Raptors at full power of which three are Rvacs and if the risk is worth the additional certification of firing all together at sea level. If they do fire 6 instead of separate 3 SL and 3 Rvacs that means they probably consider S21 having enough progress to put S20 at risk
