  1. Didja see all that activity on the OLM? Gonna get even busier if Elon has his way with a launch as early as July and another full stack in Aug. Bring it on..

  2. Any idea on how big the flames will be from Booster 7 & how much of the launch site will be exposed to the flames?

  3. One data point I've always been curious about is the cables associated with the Chopsticks. What are their diameters? What is the safe hoisting capacity of the individual cables? What level of safety factor is built into the design of the system? How many cycles of operation is the system rated for before the cables should be replaced? I have a similar curiosity about the motors that actuate that system. I guess I am the only one who is curious about this because of all the SpaceX Blogs and Vlogs not once has this issue been raised by anyone that I am aware of. That said, Felix, my wife, and I are big fans of your YT Vlogs. We love your work.

  4. Chief is a great guy. My son was down in Boca Chica for the first time last week and met him. He gave Eric a lot of good advice on where to go and what to see. He even gave him some mosquito repellent! 😆 At the end of their visit he gave Eric an autographed photo of Felix, which he gave to me and is now on my wall. Chief, you rock!

  5. Love the plus, but hard to know what I'm looking at,,,,, some narration would be helpful, I, know, more edit work, but Yr in the business.. love the channel,

  7. Chief: Great shots on the Ship QD. Haven't seen close ups from that angle. Also the guy standing beside the block and tackle on the chopsticks. Great comparison.
