Elon Musk:

Next test is ~20 sec firing with max oxygen fill to test autogenous pressurization, possibly one more static fire, then orbital launch attempt.

This is real-time! Raptor 2 wiggling like a champ via its electric TVC (Thrust Vector Control) at SpaceX McGregor.

While the Rocket Cows didn't show much interest, this is important progress for Starship per fast response steering control during flight.

This is really cool. I check out the LabPadre livestreams often to see what is going on. They are on a buildup lately.

It's all coming together nicely. Wish I could get over there to see it.

For me it's only a 1072NM flight to Brownsville. I should put that on my bucket list.

Starship completed its first full flight-like wet dress rehearsal at Starbase today. This was the first time an integrated Ship and Booster were fully loaded with more than 10 million pounds of propellant.
