It's a fertilizer.

More seriously, if the redeployment of their old-generation launchers to Hainan is only a displacement of the problem, they should also get rid of them within a decade.

(But I said seriously. At least NTO turns into a natural nitric fertilizer in several days).

Btw, these tanks fall on forest, if I got it right.
How do these places in the forest look a year/years later?
Are they dry and dead or full of funny unknown creatures green plants?

Why not, its an private company, yes the launch facility might be restricted but most show launches anyway.
SpaceX is an bit special with life feed from rocket, in part this is additional data like the feed from the second stage engine, in part its hype.

And again - not even a single banana for scale :) Also, parts of the photo were pixeled out. Censorship?

Looking at the shelves, I'd have to assume it's maybe 1.5 - 2m in diameter.

Censorship office:

"We need to censor parts of this picture of a rocket"

"Do we need to censor out enough of the rocket so you couldn't approximate its performance as an ICBM?"

"No, just the top-secret track lighting in the hangar"

No wonder he is a national treasure. That pic of him in the desert looks like it could be a shot of a superhero movie.

Looks interesting. But really? "iSpace"? Does every rocket company need "Space" in their name? There are already quite a few things called 'iSpace' already.

Good job. And now we wait for report on where debris fell and if anybody got injured. Learn rocket reusability, China - it's a great way to not endanger your citizens every time you launch something.
