Still waiting. But maybe the Raptor will get fired.

  1. 4/04/19 they did a short hop ,history made again,nobody ever built a Mars spaceship on the beach and then went to Mars before in known history.
    thx for the update here.

  2. Nothing, plus a new drone ban after SpaceX got cheesed off by amateur drone photographers (though one of the drone video feed companies apparently already has a special state permit for flying over wildlife refuges that includes higher state level exception priority, so is reconfirming with the sheriff that they are excepted from the general flight ban, though might be still subject to special temporary flight restrictions)
