  1. what are those tanks near the launch pad ? are they propellant ? thanks

  2. why go so cheap on a launch pad no flame deflection structure and no sound suppression system……watta tightass Elon..😆

  3. If that’s 7 out of 33 Raptors, and they make that amount of flame and kick up that amount of dust, then won’t all 33 produce so much that they’re a hazard to surrounding infrastructure? Why is there no blast diverter trench to keep it under some sort of control?

  4. That's a very big rocket, too bad no-one was standing near the base so we could get an accurate idea of how big 😂

  5. All the governments talk about fossil fuel . And what it’s doing to the earth but all these rich people can just keep making rockets to go to space burning fossil fuels keep flying in the Jets all around the world burning fossil fuels .. it’s not the pool that is destroying this world it is the rich people that destroy this world !!!
