I think that the environmental impacts of launching a starship is worthy of a bit of study and if SpaceX did not have that going on 2 years ago they are idiots. You are talking about creating noise, heat, and light at a rate that's simply not precedented. They can't move these offshore fast enough.

They have, indeed, been studying it for quite a while. Did you read that Teslarati article?

moved to January 2022 with NET (no exact time) so you may be correct about March, so i could “road trip” in my new! MY to Boca Chica to view “real time” the launch like did for FH and ArabSat from the cape few years back.

Sorry Xepa777, I had to close the bet/contest after the FCC submission about the first orbital attempt became public. So the official entrants are:

e-FTW: 9/15/21
Ben W: 10/31/21
Cosmacelf: 12/1/21
dkemme: 2/22/22
UltradoomY: 3/17/22
Grendal: 5/4/22
Nikxice: 5/6/22
adiggs: 6/2/22

And right now, I've got to say that e-FTW is in the pole position AGAIN.

Elon's tweet today: "If all goes well, Starship will be ready for its first orbital launch attempt next month, pending regulatory approval"

Damn, Ben and I are duking it out to win!
