The new pilot link for the Black Valley is likely, at least initially, to involve just a single household, it is understood, though official sources did not wish to talk about the project.

After integration on Earth, the PPE and HALO are targeted to launch together no earlier than May 2024 on a Falcon Heavy rocket from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The total cost to NASA is approximately $331.8 million, including the launch service and other mission-related costs.
And SpaceX got the resupply gig too

Looks like a good SN10 static fire last night. Aiming for Monday for test flight now. Would love to see it land in one piece

The competition is delayed, again. Mr Amazon not putting his money where his mouth is.

Bezos' space biz has admitted that the maiden flight of the New Glenn rocket, an orbital-class booster, will be put off again until Q4 2022

It's not all doom and gloom, though. The BE-4 engine intended for New Glenn should still see action by the end of this year, powering United Launch Alliance's Vulcan Centaur to orbit.

Haha, it would be too perfect for em to launch on a Monday!!

Exciting, they've the SpaceX logo painted onto the launchpad, it'd be great to see it land right on the spot.

Confusing tweet Elon, won't somebody think of the timezones!

I think it means...we're good for later today?

Ugh, Tim (everyday astro) says it means Thursday, and makes sense it can't be starship without and unexpected delay..... and Tim has just deleted that tweet, I have no idea
