Seems like they are using the Texas site to fly things that are not passenger ready so they can blow it up and learn from the blow-up. Might actually shorten the development phase rather than trying to figure out each and every bug. Just fly it with lots of telemetry and then fix the issue that failed for the next iteration. Maybe I'm being generous but it kind of seems like a deliberate plow ahead strategy and they are going to demonstrate success before they put a person on board.

Not sure I'd be too excited to ride on the Twittership.

Falcon lost 3, one on the ground, one lifting and one second stage failure. Now they're the only game in town for manned flight. Starship is ambitious. But I tend to think it will be successful because it's based on Falcon. At least one of the Falcon boosters now has a dozen successful launch and fly backs on it. That's impressive.

Hoping for failure, too young to remember the early days of NASA?

27? The new crater will be smaller, but still support a healthy population of toxic fish.
