    SN-90's stand failed and it tipped into the High Bay wall, damaging the sins on that side. She's upright now, and new fins arrived that same day.

    SpaceX & Tesla board member Steve Jurvetson posted this image of SN-10 and SN-11 in the Mid Bay. Those welds are getting clean, and they're improving them again a few builds from now.

    SN-14's payload section is being built, and SN-10's is getting its drag fins. LOX is being delivered for the next run of tests.
