Falcon Heavy man rating has been shelved. BFR is progressing quickly and the lunar Falcon Heavy flyby has been moved to BFR. Nice!lets hope the wait isnt as long as falcon heavy was lol
lets hope the wait isnt as long as falcon heavy was lolBFS can do grasshoper tests with a really simple pad. I expect that's what they expect for around the end of the year.
lots of unanswered questions yet, we really need to see construction pick up at boca chica, and they still need a test stand for BFR lol

The performance numbers in this database are not accurate. In process of being fixed. Even if they were, a fully expendable Falcon Heavy, which far exceeds the performance of a Delta IV Heavy, is $150M, compared to over $400M for Delta IV Heavy.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 12, 2018
Under consideration. We’ve already stretched the upper stage once. Easiest part of the rocket to change. Fairing 2, flying soon, also has a slightly larger diameter. Could make fairing much longer if need be & will if BFR takes longer than expected.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 12, 2018
Well we were joking about the Long March 3B booster landing bingo, but this really isn't a laughing matter. This was the result of this morning's launch! https://t.co/H8vXZ43un1 pic.twitter.com/cdXpSC7q1t— Chris B - NSF (@NASASpaceflight) February 12, 2018
