    (The title? In the tradition of “Thunderbirds are go” …)

    Starship plus booster scheduled for full-dress launch test today, and SpaceX appears to be dedicated to launching as soon as its window opens at 0800 CDT (0900 EDT, 0700 MDT, 022 HST).

    Two video feeds:

    NASA Spaceflight has been live since midnight EDT:


    SpaceX’s feed is scheduled to go live 45 minutes before launch:

    I have no idea why those video links aren’t working, but we’re about two minutes away from propellant load.

    They're going to run the countdown down to T-minus 0:10 then stop

    Delay apparently at least 48 hours

    I hate hate hate that Elon’s left me rooting for launch failures with the Starship.

    Better to not go and wish you had gone than it is to go and then wish you hadn’t gone.

    Is this a SpaceX story or a Twitter story?

    T-22:00, so far so good.

    I will say, Starship kicks off much much more fuel and oxidizer vapor on the pad than Saturn or the Shuttle did.
