I could see a pod, yeah.

I wasn't seeing anything that looked like that in the image, though.

Some person going about their business today is going to be the first person to visit both the Moon and Mars.

Thats pretty cool to think about.

Alot of people seem to be already aware there is a high chance Yusaku Maezawa us the man going to the Moon. Alot of 'are you going to the Moon?' tweets. Also, there is this cryptic tweet he posted. Someone on the NSF forum noted that there is no Tuesday September 19th untill 2023, wich might be the launch date planned (so far).

Also, i can't wait, so im listening to this:

3 hours. They better have some new hardware and test videos to show off. :)

I hope so too.

Can't wait to be awake at 3:00am on a school night.

I wonder what is going on inside that party tent in LA. What if there is a full on spacecraft in there, and they are going to stream right next, or even INSIDE a mock-up of the spaceship?!?!?! I mean, if they are going to go orbital in 2 years, they must have done something right?

What was on it?

All it said was 'test'

I don't know why. Maybe he is on the Moon already and wanted to see if his Wi-Fi works lol.

He just tweeted "Test"

He was at the Falcon Heavy launch (has instagram pic of it).

(I just checked out his instagram)

He also has pics of the Apollo 8 capsule and the text next to it (which is in Chicago).

Makes enough sense. Was anyone seriously expecting the full stack to launch in 2020? I do hope the hop tests are before 2020 though. But even still, I'd say they are making incredible strides.

A guy at NSF said that the tweet was from the Pacific time zone (don't even know how one checks that), so it seems pretty likely it's him.

Ooh boy, looks like I'll be up past the stream as well to watch his breakdown. Also, was there any word on how long the SpaceX announcement will be?
