SpaceX Hardware on the Move

A Falcon Heavy side booster was seen outside SpaceX HQ wrapped and ready to hit the road. By all accounts, this is the booster that flew the Thaicom 8 mission, landed hard on the ASDS, came back to port leaning, and was converted to fly on the Falcon Heavy demo mission. It’s most likely now on its way to McGregor for a static fire. It will be exciting to finally see a booster with a nosecone on the test stand.

On the ITS front, the composite tank was seen on the move in Anacortes, WA. Looks like they’re taking it out to sea again for another pressure test.
