  2. 5:46 Transformers Delivered to the Production Site – I guess Optimus Prime wanted to check out Mechazilla 😅

  3. I’m thinking if b7 flies it would be great because the new mega bay will and is going to be just as important as the launch pad/ tower and so on and so forth. Everything acting as one.

  4. Okay so I want to get this straight. The EDDOME is at the launch site for testing and the EDDOME dome is at the production site isn't something kind of like missing here I would think they would be together because there's nothing to test I guess

  5. whats with the two sets of wheels that don't touch the ground? might be an engineering oversight there

  6. Nothing on the forums about the open letter from space X employees concerning musks online behaviour

  7. What is a can crusher cap, and why is this thing nick-named after it? What is its actual function?

  8. 6:20 This is the giant tarantula from my nightmares. Who would have thought arachnophobia would keep me from my dream of being a rocket scientist?

  9. Waiting for the docking ring delivery. I would rather have two or three than windows. Long trip link everyone up.
