I really hope it's a good launch. A RUD would suck regardless, but it'd be so hard to have Falcon Heavy pushed back by 6 months.

Plot twist!

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

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

BFS can do grasshoper tests with a really simple pad. I expect that's what they expect for around the end of the year.

Floating falcon 9 booster was scuttled. Couldn't figure out a way to safely return it to port, so SpaceX had the government shoot it with a missile.
