This is the Falcon booster and the same one has flown and landed eight times. That's a pretty good piece of engineering.

I think you've mistaken it for the Starship rocket and capsule which is currently doing static firings prior to the next hop/landing attempt.

Oh, ok.

Well, that's very good then. This one must be a good design then. This setup must have its' feces consolidated. LOL.

To put it bluntly.

That other one has real problems.

The next hop will tell a lot. They knew right away what happened with the other; that fix is part of today's static firing. It's why they held off the next hop test,
