  1. Space X's can crusher is frickin so much more than other can crushers I have seen. I wonder where Ship 26's nosecone is going to end up?? Great channel and RIP Civil War Trail Signpost….🤓

  2. Thanks a lot for your dedication and the informations. But what I would like to know (and no one can tell) is how often the Merlins in the F9 boosters have to be replaced after a flight. Do they have to be removed every time? Can they be refurbished while remaining mounted? Answers will be very much appreciated.

  3. Every time I watch these, it feels like I just programmed in about a month of direct and to the point data into my brain, and I can recall most all of it, because of the lack of needless filler. Well done once again, Lab!

  4. Let's have a moment of silence for the "Old Civil War Trail Signpost". Gone , but not forgotten. RIP old friend 😢😂

  5. Super updates. Its just amazing that they light all of these engines all the time. Its not like a light once and done like that one other rocket!

  6. I look forward to your concise, informative take on the week's activities. Thanks for all the details and work putting these updates together.

  7. Scrubtember started, eh? It's time now for the SLS and Starliner to find new reasons for delays. Not so much at the Starbase! Not so much for LabPadre's team either! Good job, regardless of weather! 🌤
