Elon just confirmed the first BFR is actively under construction. Wonder if that's true or he was meaning just general work.

well if they wanna be doing practice hops anytime soon, they need to get building a prototype

BFR really is happening!  ;D Proof that their original ITS roadmap is more or less unchanged for BFR. Also farther fuels the speculation that BFR, Vulcan, New Glenn, and SLS could all be neck and neck with their first launches.

i really wonder if they will be allowed full orbital BFR launches from boca chica beach,  or if theyll have to build an offshore platform.   its also had a bunch of activity and things look like they are about to really get going

BFR production moves to Los Angeles Harbor.. : spacex

NASA courts commercial options for Lunar Landers - NASASpaceFlight.com
Nasa is asking for companies to submit lunar lander proposals. Wants to deliver cargo around 2022.

Goal is 500kg to the surface. Would be funny if SpaceX sent a proposal using BFR since it could do 50,000 kg to the surface and bring samples back.

Blue Origin switches engines for New Glenn second stage - SpaceNews.com

New Glenn slightly downgraded in order to keep development from slipping farther (and probably make it cheaper).


First launch is set for Q4 2020. The engine switch also means it'll get even taller since hydrogen is less dense. Gonna be huge!
