Yep, that happens all the time. Fluffy oxygen ice, I think from the turbopump exhaust.

You know if the delays continue at this rate I may graduate high school before I see SpaceX, Boeing, or Blue Origin launch anyone into space. It's great that we have a NET date finally, but wow, 2020...

It means cumulatively. 95000lbs is approx 43tonnes, over 19 flights that's about 2.3 tonnes per flight.

Well within dragon's capabilities.

Now the patch next to the grind fin makes my much more curious. 
That is going on here? kind of looks like an inspection port but with lots of strengthening. Is it for the helium tanks?
