Two image composite of #Starhopper just after static fire. One long exposure made before the discharge and one short one made during/just after. Hopefully this is a nominal vent and nothing to worry about; the vehicle appears fine this morning per @BocaChicaGal @NASASpaceflight pic.twitter.com/Tw5L1ljk6c— Jack Beyer (@thejackbeyer) July 17, 2019
#StarHopper stands proudly after last nights testing🔥— 📸Trevor Mahlmann (@TrevorMahlmann) July 17, 2019
Crews were up underneath it this morning performing work already. Hopefully whatever caused the secondary fire last night can be mitigated quickly and they can get to hoppin' again soon!

Here’s full speed, full static fire of @SpaceX’s #StarHopper! If you want to see this and the subsequent fireball in slow motion, hit the link for it in its 4K glory!
