#8 As far as I know, the differences are:

o more pressure for the tanks used during landing
o new administration in DC

#10 Update from Elon:

Unlike its aircraft division, which is fine, the FAA space division has a fundamentally broken regulatory structure.

Their rules are meant for a handful of expendable launches per year from a few government facilities. Under those rules, humanity will never get to Mars.

#11  Statement from the FAA just now re the SpaceX SN9 flight: “We will continue working with SpaceX to resolve outstanding safety issues before we approve the next test flight.”

#12 Yeah, that FAA statement came out around 4pm.

And if Elon wants to see fundamentally broken, he should look at the unmanned aerial service (drones) section of the FAA. What Amazon wants, they get. Hobbyists and those finding other ways to use drones commercially? They may as well not exist.

#13 Musk, just buy an island near the equator and tell the US Govt to go piss up a rope.

The good news is that we now have the Space Force to protect against Jewish Space Lasers, or all space lasers for that matter.

The complaint says DOJ "enforces the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (“INA”), which prohibits employment discrimination on the basis of citizenship and national origin." But under ITAR SpaceX CAN'T hire foreigners, right? What am I missing?
