  • I would like to know about how much money dose it take each day to run that operation like paying the workers light bill fuel bill all that has to be like at least 2 million a day for labor and materials that is a intense job site i would love to work there

  • I don't know why they would prefer to refly it rather than take it apart. They have a (so-far) unique opportunity to make a fine-scale examination of every single component after flight. Reflying would risk that for much more limited data.

  • Wow this place is huge!

  • Why are there two launch towers

  • I was up all night whaching the whole stream to see SN15 land

  • Imagine if they fly it again without bothering with testing and refurbishment! That would really be "Fully and Rapidly Reusable". And that way, at least it has a chance for a Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly so they can just bulldoze the wreckage instead of having to wheel 15 to the background lol.

  • Молодцы, даешь базу на Луне!

  • Could methane leaks occur from broken pipes with methane solidified by freezing, like water in winter?

  • Hmm. I've got a bad feeling about the heat shield tiles. I think that's going to be the next, maybe biggest challenge. I hope they are working on alternative ideas.

  • Thank you team! Love the videos Mary!!

  • "the starship wont have to lean due to 3 engines to fly straight up and down due to the center of mass" well, have you met sn10 yet? nah you are to from the future

  • Are the cryo shells going to be placed over GSE 1 & 2?

  • 5:23 Guy says he needs help. Hope he is okay.

  • I've never seen opossum in that color. Give him a ride to Mars if he wants to!

  • So what have they been doing with the orbital launch table. I’ve been watching these videos since January and in every one there’s a segment called “Orbital Launch Table Work Continues”. I’ve seen only one major change with this thing, does anyone know what they’ve been doing?

  • I bid $42 for one of those landing legs. I'll even come and pick it up! :^)

  • Holy cow was that a RAT ???

  • Makes sense that they would want to know how it will launch off its legs once it lands on the moon or wherever instead of take off from a launch pad.

  • Not me getting sad when the outro plays, I love this content so much! 😭Keep up the good work!

  • Well, they've learned how to park it! Now they just have to figure out how to get it into the garage!!

  • Interesting, their still working on the test nose cone. Won't that need be in the way if they want move SN16 over there with 15 still on the pad?

    • I think it's at the same spot SN7.1 was on, which is just off to the side of the roadway along Pad A and Pad B. There's room to pass.

  • Move it to where? These things are gonna start accumulating.

  • Woah, that was funny illusion. The Mid Bay almost looked as tall as the High bay

  • I never knew I liked big cranes until I started following the work at BC. I find them fascinating and oddly elegant. Maybe it’s just me.

  • Space x staff walk really fast and those forklifts must be running on nitros

  • Wow I didn't know opossums could run that fast. Every one I ever saw took about 5 minutes to scramble across a 2 lane country road.

  • Good job

  • Anyone know what the tapping of what is probably an ID card on the sensor on a post is all about at approx. 1210 of the video?

    • @Nolsp yeah I suppose, but the guy swiping his card is driving a mobile crane which sort of suggests he drives it to work. I used to swipe my card to get into my work but I had come in from the carpark. Anyway thanks for the reply.

    • This would be like a time in/out monitoring system for employees. Pretty standard nowadays.


  • SpaceX, well, we did it. It landed... now to move it... blow it up? No?

  • Can the nosecone test rig be a test for Moonship and maybe that's where they dock?

  • I know they have a vision, but it is sure hard for me to see it yet!

  • here in Brazil we call it opossum or Stinks

  • I wonder if the High Bay Bar windows are the same glass as on the CyberTruck? After all, one of the reasons they evacuate the village for launches is the danger of acoustic energy breaking glass. Or is a reason mentioned a while ago, in anticipation of SH launches. (No jokes about the presentation breakage, pls. Too obvious.)

  • #

  • 2nd landed.

  • They made the fins on this rocket out of tin foil so it would be super lightweight right?

  • The high bar! Yesss! I've been wondering about it!

  • I'm sure all the Texas HOA Karens are enamored with the industrial beeping. Pumps, and other heavy industrial noise polluting the peaceful suburban quietude of South TX. Above all, republicans want TX open for business. Low taxes and all. You voted for them. Enjoy!

  • Where is the Spacex control center in Boca Chica?

    • Sorry but that's not exactly correct. SpaceX built the StarGate building as a joint project with a university, hence the RGV logo on the side of the building. SpaceX had already acquired most of the land they are using in Boca Chica. The NasaSpaceFlight forum has several years of history, with on site photos from BocaChicaGal and Nomad.

    • It's called Stargate, a small (2 story?) blue building just south of the High Bay. It was actually there before SpaceX bought the land, and already named Stargate, was part of some educational program, IIRC. South is between the High bay and the Propellant Production site.

  • what's a launch tower? Is that for starship plus the booster?

    • Yes. The large 6 angled white columns next to it will be topped by the Launch Table mentioned in the video. The tower will lift a Super Heavy on to it, then place a Starship on top of the SH. It will use some kind of arms instead of a crane. The crazy part: Elon has clearly stated that the arms will be used to catch the Super Heavy when it comes back to land, catch it just under the grid fins. SH will have no landing legs.

    • Yes

  • Those birds are admiring SN15 just as much as we are.

  • Launch it!!!!!!

  • awesome work Mary and Jack and the whole NSF team you guys rock

  • They are relaunching it

  • Anyone know the name of that tall building in 13:37?

    • @Nolsp it looks like a launch tower, thank you for that clarification

    • Not a building but part of the air separation equipment for Lox and nitrogen production.

  • make the SN-15 out of static museum///////////

  • I wish spacex will make a documentary of starbase development, would love to see the inside of every buildings here

    • I don't they will do anything like that...they have enough competitors

    • @wills movies 🤣🤣🤣

    • So would China.

  • A wild pinto ready to bolt//////////////

  • Thank you Mary and Team...❤️

  • Cant wait to have a few in the high bay tiki bar ! and the pandemic to be over with !

  • Good work Mary and NSF team.

  • A bar! How sweet is that!!?? Wish I were an iron worker at Boca CHica.

  • Look out, little possum!! Stay off that road!

  • Bullshit rockets. See solar warden...

  • It's not commonly known that a group of possums is called a possy.

  • 10:43 A ghost closes the bin lid.

  • Mary sure doesn't miss much of what"s going on at Boca Chica site with that shot of the addition of the one High Bay bar window!

  • Sunday video drops are getting a decidedly different vibe to them ???

  • Thank you Mary, for all the views.

  • Why the others GSE tanks bases are taller than the GSE 1 & 2?

    • @Don Jones I hope it was for the aesthetics tbh 😂 thanks for the info!!

    • Consensus opinion is these GSE tanks will hold methane. Less methane than LOX is needed in the mix, thus a smaller tank. And apparently for aesthetics SpaceX decided to make the tanks all even at the same height at the top. Aesthetics, or perhaps there's some characteristic of the cryogenics flowing into the rocket during fueling that is beyond my comprehension.

  • It's a leap ahead to immediately re-fly SN15. Test, Test, Test! Keep it up 😜 Tesla until you can consistently do it over, and over, and over again...until you've worked out all the bugs. Meanwhile, Tesla is building newer ships incorporating improvements in both their construction and design. I'm so sick of waiting years between flights as it was in the early days of NASA, wasting Billions of dollars. Tesla is leading the way as always. I doubt other companies can compete, though if they can, let them learn to catch up! Go Tesla!

  • Can someone please explain to me why we need a 14 minute video of Starship 15 sitting on the Landing Pad? I promise you it's not going anywhere, and Space X will tell you when it is.

  • I think by now I've seen a half dozen video titles stating that it was moved, but apparently not.

    • The SMPT-contraption moved it a short distance - from 'edge of pad' to 'center of pad'. It hasn't moved to a new site/station/stand, and no crane was used to lift it ... but it did shift over a bit.

  • The opossum appears at 9:38

  • I am glad that SN 15 been left long in view as it’s let us enjoy the success and appreciate it, what a great perseverance love it !


  • Mary, I live the comic relief you often out in like the local animal life… this time the opossum saying hi!

  • Bazos dealing drugs on Amazon confirmed🐸pas it on

  • Thank you Mary 🥰

  • lol it aint budgeing- Fuck it send it back up

  • It says “Starship SN15 still sits in the middle of the landing pad”. From memory, that was the most nominal middle I’ve ever seen. It missed the edge by only a couple of metres.

    • @zavevu Ah, ok, thanks! Seen his stuff in the past, but not recently. If you search for "SN15 moved" here on UZfire, you'll find a NASASpaceflight video from yesterday about it.

    • @Krister L I think he's the pilot making weekly flyover. What about it updates show the amazing photos.

    • @Rick Steeb Not sure who he is, but yeah, SN15 is not in the exact same spot as it landed

    • @Krister L For Mauricio's shots!?

    • Yes, it was a close call. They moved it after the landing.

  • The amount of heatshield tiles on the side of the rocket is just sexy. Can't wait for the entire face to be covered, including the flaps.

  • You must show more the US flag. Debes mostrar más la bandera de EEUU.

  • Opossum almost road kill

  • Ok ok SN15 enjoying the standing ovations, yes you did well, yes we're all real proud of you, good boy.

  • I watch Mary's video every day. The quality is impeccable.

  • I'm guessing that they are waiting on a final decision on that to do with SN15.

  • What kind of animal was that. It didn't have a shell around it so it couldn't have been a armadillo.

    • @Don Jones thank you. I guess I should be reading the subtitles. Easier than those people shakin there hands around I guess??

    • As the subtitle said, it's an opossum. Not usually seen in the daytime.

  • Wonder why they moved SN15 there, so it would look good for the press?

    • When the SPMTs were attached at the spot where it landed, several wheels (bogeys) of both SPMTs were off the concrete on the packed soil. Moving it closer to the center of the landing pad made it more stable for when they removed the legs.

    • My guess is for lack of space, that's where they're holding all the post-flight analysis and inspection. I was kinda wondering why they didn't use a crane to move it but this way works too.
