    Fan-art, but a nice size comparison.

    It'll be a nearly 100 foot/30m tall launch platform with an actively cooled diverter (no trench) and the Mother of All Deluges. Add a 500+ foot tower with a hammerhead crane & Crew/Cargo Arm and that'll be the KSC LC-39A Super Heavy/Starship pad.

    CC at Boca Chica (already under construction)

    We're now building flight design of Starship SN1, but each SN will have at least minor improvements, at least through SN20 or so of Starship V1.0.

    Flight is hopefully 2 to 3 months away
