FTL will take a while, but they may have to start working on mag catapults. The governments of Earth will not be happy when Elon declares independence of his Dogecoin-backed Mars colony, and he's going to need mass drivers along with a few squadrons of Vipers for combat air patrol.Are they working on FTL jumps too? And has Elon secured a supply of Tylium?
There was a small fire at the base of the rocket for a while, but as of this writing, they look to have gotten it fully de-tanked without RUD.
@vreihen : I agree with that losing the "Buck Rogers" skirting might help - but notwithstanding the latest Starship success, I still think that the landing experience of SpaceX passengers is likely to be the same as "Major Kong" !!My $0.02 is that they need to lose the "Buck Rogers" skirting around the engines, and consider longer legs with a wider stance. The skirting and short legs provide a place for unburned fuel vapor to collect, and trap the heat/flames bouncing up from the landing pad right before touchdown. It also looked like the engine gimbals got a serious workout right before touchdown.
Since there was no RUD or "crater in the right place" this time, I'd call SN15 a success.....
