Booster 7 Rolled Out for Static Fire Testing | SpaceX Starbase



Booster 7 was rolled out to the launch site in preparation for its static fire test campaign. SpaceX is ramping up testing for the orbital test flight after the FAA released its Environmental Assessment earlier this month.

  2. Было бы интересно запечатлеть способ передачи ИНФОРМАЦИИ от проектировщиков к непосредственному исполнителю конкретных действий … Через координатора ВСЕХ процессов , контролирующего переход от ИДЕИ до воплощения в МАТЕРИЮ .

  3. I understand they installed the setup of COPVs onto the chops and its supposed to be an air hydraulic cushioning system for them. But i can not see how they could possibly do that job when the chops are still connected to the carriage via the direct hard points at both pivot points..

  4. I'm kind of late to the party, took a break for a little bit from following all the progress, as I felt it was sort of limbo. Anyway, are all 33 Raptor engines installed on Booster 7? If so, are all 33 going to be tested during the static fire? Thank you guys!

  5. THank you Mary, Nic and the NSF team for sharing this footage, I am very grateful to you guys, since this morning 5:00 AM GMT time I have been on the live stream and lucky to have watched the booster being lifted and inserted into the OLM. what a feat of engineering .

  6. NASA doesn’t have the “drive” it once did 50 years ago. They are happy with putting landers on planets and the ISS. We should have been living on the moon 20 years ago. Now NASA cannot even get back to the moon, how sad.

  7. I'm 1/2 into this Vid, and My Main Question is….."Do some people, "Not Know about, ELON"???

  8. An early comment for once 🤩😍🤩😍 thanks NSF! I love you guys 🙂 great footage
