  1. He went cheap and fast on the outer structure because it is only meant to test the engines and control systems at low altitudes for calibrating landing protocols. The 3 orbital versions likely have a much thicker, higher grade stainless steel hull. This thing is a flying trash can.

  2. Curious about a little detail. I was google mapping Boca Chica (where the heck is that?) and noticed a little housing tract next to the SpaceX launch tracking facility, on Weems Street. Zooming in, I noticed that most of the houses were boarded up (2011…). I was wondering if SpaceX bought all the houses up when they signed up for the Boca Chica site, and are perhaps now using them for staff billets.
