Actually, I think NASA wants 7 launches in a "frozen" config. They have launched block V as of last month... but that was a version without the new COPV tanks. First flight with those doesn't come until August I think. So they need 7 flights from that point.

That sounds right. I wasn't sure, and recalled that is was a number 10 or less.
Thanks!

The next two flight block five get the pleasure of a complete teardown/ analysis to verify the wear for multiple flights I think they'll have a "Frozen" NASA version, and then over the year or two, will tweak other items using commercial launches. Once they have enough of them, I bet they make a Block 5.1 (sort of what Elon said they might do), fly it 7 times commercially,

I thought others here would be interested in this, if you hadn't seen it already:

... I mean, if it has rockets, it's at least a little relevant?

The yawn effect has even passed. Did no one notice that CRS-15 flew this morning. The last of the Block IV Falcons laid to rest in a successful second flight. The capsule is also a recycle.

You guys... losing interest so fast...

I have also wondered this. Or even assisted guidance towards the recovery vessel net. Have them chase each other.

I put this forward, unless testing will begin on schedule this infrastructure expenditure seems premature.

So BFS testing will begin on schedule, as announced.

Yeah, another boring GTO launch and landing. Second flight of a block 5, and the second landing stuck right on the middle circle.

Boring....

It's like they're so good at this, they're making it look easy.
