You should go on their chat and talk them through it

it seems these guys are learning on the fly not experts or anything they just got patreons to donate mony for stuff they don't know how to set up
i tried

it's one of those things where they'll have to learn what not to do next time, or surround themselves with better people

I'm starting to wonder if they are not afraid of getting complaints of the old people up the street or maybe the clamps can't keep this on the pad if they went for longer
that was short
Are they still iving there?
Thought they were paid out and moved elsewhere..

Wow, they don't have much believe in SN4 and SN5, it seems... : D
they had another static fire on SN4 this morning so they are trusting it just fine I think SN6 is just part of the on going process to heep building them
the goal is 2 per week after all they are not identical right now each one has some new design elements

here is a time stamp from Tim's 5 hours waiting for 3 seconds lol I'm glad I did not take part

I can completely understand him.
Those belongings he wants to sell are just shit taking up mind space he needs for more important things..
You can only live in one house at a time, and if you rent you don't even need to maintain that property and can move whenever you want.

If Elon took the 2 million or so in principal he would spend for a L.A. mansion and put that into the stock market, and annually invested 100k or so that he would be spending on a mortgage, with a 7% return over his lifetime he would probably walk away with around 25 million.

You really don't need more than one house unless you are into real estate

If that's the case, I wonder if they are surprised about that as well, with the experiences they had with its predecessors.
Anyway, this will be glorious..

Can't wait.

I wonder about the wisdom of doing a 150 meter hop and failing badly before Demo Mission 2. Sure they don't plan to fail but just saying.

I guess they are 2 different things but sheesh that is some reality for your ass if you are flying on Demo Mission 2.


Looks like the whole week as activity closed road. Whenever the hop is should be soon
