When will SN9 Launch? What's your best guess?

It will never launch sorry to burst your bubble here it isn't going to happen because Elon Musk has gone bust. Meaning Space X is an X company it' no longer exists. And you know what I'm glad.

I'm no professional welder but I think the issues they've had with shrinkage are on the larger welds. Something as small as a stud likely wouldn't cause much of an issue?

Your the first person I've seen cover SpaceX that is able to say SpaceX without having to say Elon Musk first. I do feel every time someone says Elon Musk and means SpaceX it belittles the work done by his employees. The ones actually doing rocket science. So thanks for talking about SpaceX as a whole and not one person xx

A note for post: The percussion in the music bed is WAY too noticeable, and - at least for people with decent audio systems - makes this almost unwatchable. Think "someone constantly pounding a bass drum in the background". You don't notice this because you are very used to it (it's "normal"). For the rest of us - not so much. Just sayin'.

Who is this guy ? something doesn't sit right, first off, he sounds like a robot, lol and then facially, looks just as mute, first video uploaded 11 years ago, some weird "middle earth video" and as of a year ago, you got it, space ! spaceX included ... hmmm and the channel name "What about it!?" huh ? come again ? what about what ? space ? or middle earth ? honestly though, there are already plenty channels out there that do a great job at following whats happening in the space industry and well, the channel name, come on, something relevant at least ? or are you simply leaving it like this incase you need to change subject matter in another 11 years ? lol ... the sheer lack of character is off putting but, good luck I guess, I can't help but think the entire channel is a cash grab, merch and everything and you've been running the page in this manner for a year, hmmm, yeah, I'ma go elsewhere

Great report! Keep ‘em coming Felix! Not sure why some are confused about the title. Has it been changed since some said it was click baity? Surely it just represents, in sequence, the 3 separate topics covered. The title in no way links any of the 3 elements, especially not the heat shield trouble to the Perseverance lander.

Thank you very much, Felix, for all those excellent professionally done updates on space exploration technology development. I am eagerly looking forward to Perseverance's Mars landing, particularly to being able to see video and hear audio of 7 minutes of hell as Curiosity's landing approach was called. In all truth, you are the one who really rocks.

So... my guess is that Elon is planning to send a cargo fleet to Mars in '22 and he wants to get a dozen of them ready to go to orbit by the end of this year. So a manned mission can take off in 2024.

I feel terrible about clicking through ads on your really good video but youtube thinks it's fine to put 52 minute commercials on a 15 minute video. I allowed one to play (horrible Epoch Times nonsense) but I hate that you're not getting the revenue you deserve.
