In other news, expect another delay in SpaceX's Star ship testing.

Maybe they should ask Ben Shapiro's wife?

Frankly, I'd rather see Scarlet Johansson and Christina Hendricks in a Wet Dress rehearsal, IYKWIMAITYD.

They probably have a good chance to get going by the end of the year. As disappointed in the $L$ as I am, it will be a major disaster if it does blow up.

And on general principle, I always want success for for everyone.

/Success for everyone who is not Russian at least.

An RUD might be enough to kill the entire program, which probably makes it the best possible outcome for tax payers in the U.S. but I still don't want it to fail. The worst possible outcome is they find yet another problem that adds more delays and costs (profits).

The ship they're developing with their own money and which is about a century ahead of schedule based on pre-SpaceX interplanetary manned spaceflight progress?

So far it's only being held back by the FAA because SpaceX built a Starship base where they only had a permit for a F9 base.

/ Unlike SLS, SpaceX is actually being penalized by going too fast.
