hey jack so so yeah so this is is this a good image let me see a little dust on the lens there hello barry for the last time he has a learning curve you know i didn’t know the uh couldn’t do the 1080 with the youtube live stream but um and then the cool yeah i’m gonna leave it as it is no no enemies hello yeah chris jc we’re um we may uh somebody might help me get a uh a nikon early and i’ll pay them back uh yeah yes puerto kid i may pay him back uh later in august when uh thanks luke this week i may get a uh nikon camera um and i’ll pay the person back later in august for only buy it am i happier tomorrow or this week probably by the end of this month i would have it if we do buy it it’s getting checked out today and uh we might we might buy a nikon p1000 today or for a good price you know i used but um supposed to be in good condition and magic i don’t know so is this a good something worth seeing or where i can just live stream another time yeah new camera be good i can get the booster too i can just move down the road a little bit but this is uh a little bit interesting they’re doing a lot of work on the tower today too are they still working on the new section um yeah i’ve seen a little work on it this morning i’m seeing more work on the on the yellow structure to the right of it yeah looking forward to it too no enemies i’m looking forward to it okay carl good to know uh yeah i haven’t seen any i’ve seen maybe a little bit of work on it but i mean there’s there is a uh a lift there i’ll zoom in a little bit you can see the lift there in the center i’m gonna show you what all that noise is they’re moving that dumpster over there with the uh oh nothing happened at b3 okay thanks thanks good to know magic thank you the tyler yeah uh so the v braces uh let me see here i’m not sure if i maybe uh it looks like they’re going up instead of down so yes that would be that would be a major uh berry that’s a good observation the the v braces are the angles the triangles are going up instead of down you can see that so maybe it’s better for load bearing you know when you got the uh the roof supported there instead of the if you look at the tower the tower you can see the v is going down whereas the that nine section the v is going up so that’s a good observation barry right on man sorry yeah stanley um okay they keep putting in the new windows so it’s obviously progressing um i’ll get some shots later i can do that oh you think they’ll flip it um that’s cool well it would uh that’s an interesting thought i hadn’t thought about that maybe yeah stuart i was thinking that if if they kept it in that position it would be better for support of the roof but uh the big thing happening right now it seems to be this yellow structure they’re they’re moving a lot of they’re attaching a lot of new segments to it i mean a new pieces here yeah i hear you okay good to know diddy good good point diddy yeah iron head i was looking at the red underneath and i was like well that’s usually the way it looks before it gets picked up with a red underneath hello jen yep lunch time is coming up looking forward to a good lunch yeah i’ve seen starship gage europe he’s cool he’s around here quite a bit i’m not sure when the next test launch will be it’s uh i’m sure you could figure that out if you figure it out next paul if you figure it out let us know but i’m sure it could be figured out you just got to take a bunch of factors into consideration which um i don’t usually have time to look at all that stuff the news section i’ll say the new section that is being built and it looks like it’s upside down okay or maybe okay arrow yeah so that’s some loud speakers and something else on top of the loudspeakers so that’s what’s that’s what’s happening i can look over there for sure i can look over there okay i’ll look over there right now but there is a there is a lift in the center of that ninth segment there so they are doing some work on this section there and uh i’ll i’ll take a look at take a look at the broom over there it’s green it’s uh so that angular area of the berm there on the inside uh some people have been saying that well maybe they’ll leave it uh as a uh as a green area you know and just uh cement or um spackle or whatever the outside of the berms here so they may leave that green you know okay let’s see i think maybe that’s the best i can do without without getting too blurry even that might be blurry but it’s some loud speakers and on top of the loudspeakers is i’m not sure what it is but um it’s something else on top of the speakers i got some good close-ups oh cool i got some close-ups on twitter that i posted a couple days ago yes right over there yeah paul love would be a good uh a good button here on twitter all right i’m gonna scroll back to the other stuff now yeah no enemies it does look good hey ghoulie yeah there’s only three sections so far okay audio is concrete odd view a swinging uh gsd attachment that’d be cool for the stack shift starship that’s cool cryofuel oxidizer interesting okay barry that’s interesting hey gary okay ellen good to know chucky ma man yeah so if you if you if you’re watching this video and you’re you’re here hearing like me chatting and stuff it’s people here in the chat typing in the uh in the chat and so we’re having like a dialogue and a conversation here so that’s what all that’s what i’m chatting about i’m looking on screen and i’m seeing the chat go by and i got a comment yesterday um someone liked the videos but they were wondering what i was chatting about so i’m i’m actually looking at the we have a live chat going and i can uh see what people are commenting and uh you know we’re chatting so that’s why i’m talking over the video yeah okay i’ll zoom in on it uh stewart talking to me that’s right barry i’ll pan down a little bit oh there we go sorry about that thanks alan exhale hungry yeah man right on right now it’s a good friday and i’m looking forward to um seeing what happens today and also to get some um going into town a little bit getting on the computer and stuff there’s some videos of um there was like a 50th anniversary this weekend of like the space stuff or something so i wanted to download some of those videos or or watch some of those videos or look through what they’ve done before um and uh maybe i should post a link here of some of that stuff too in discord there are some links to interesting stuff to watch hey joe yeah it’s looking like uh it’s progressing fast this yellow structure okay i’m gonna zoom out here hey mark okay drill prett um if you wanted to bring the family down uh if you don’t mind spending a little money there are some nice hotels in the area um if you’re and uh you know if you want to see a launch or something if you just want to visit starbase then uh get something in maybe in brownsville but if you want to hang out on a beach or something like a nice beach it might go to south padre island it’s about um 40 20 40 miles from starbase here so 40 miles from here is uh south padre island and you can you can go on the beach and um they have a nicer beach than here at starbase but there is a beach here too and um there are hotels over there on uh south padre island but if you want to stay close like 20 miles away see if you went to south padre island it’ll be it’d be 80 miles round trip so 40 miles each way but uh if you uh we’re okay staying closer and not having the best beach um see on the on the beach here just on the road here uh people drive on the beach so you gotta kind of keep your eyes open to no trucks or cars coming down the beach and so i feel a little bit sketchy hanging out on the beach you know thanks magic magic sky i appreciate it um but over at the um at the south padre island beach uh the trucks don’t go on the beach or anything so if you have young children or something and you you want to hang out on the beach all day or something like that it would be worth going to the south padre island area uh to the isla blanca beach park or something like that and then you can lay on the beach all day and close your eyes you know i did that for my first two months here and but it’s a it’s a 80 mile drive round trip from uh that south padre island um if you go to brownsville here that’s about 20 miles away so there’s uh there’s plenty of hotels to stay in if you want to bring an rv there’s plenty of rv camping you can cam park your rv for 350 a month here in brownsville or you go to south padre island i think it’s around 500 is the minimum a month and uh if you do it on a daily rate it’s a little bit more expensive by the day you can also camp out at south at the south padre island and if you want to camp on the beach and you have four-wheel drive or you’re able to maneuver on the beach you can camp for free on the beach with your truck or car over here next to the launch site i can’t dead on the beach for about two weeks my first two weeks here hey barry thanks guy tour the camera awesome awesome thank you so much thank you yeah thanks for the likes everybody that’s good stuff good stuff if there’s something you’d like to see let me know uh compared to yesterday the i mean the amount of construction going on on that yellow pipe is on that yellow structure is considerable but compared to yesterday in the movement we the number of trucks we had coming in here yesterday and all the excitement and movement was it was more than that’s happening right now diddy see the tall red jig stand to the left of section nine notice notice is it taller okay the red jig looks um okay okay i see what you’re saying let me see is it taller it is it is taller that’s for the short leg that connects up with the tall leg on section eight which is already on top of the tower so let me okay let me focus out on that see so there’s a strong i’m gonna use my hand okay this piece here that red piece is part of the large crane but behind that is another i think that is a part of the large crane yeah behind that is a little bit taller section and i’ll zoom out for this and then i’ll scroll back to your comment yeah okay so there we can see it still print thanks guy for the enrichment that was really helpful awesome dilbert thank you thank you i’m going back to that comment um the taller red jig stand next to the left of the section nine notice it is taller yeah it is that’s for the short leg that connects uh up with the tall leg on on section eight which is uh already on top of the okay yeah okay that that jig on the bottom right right let me oh interesting i’ll focus in on what you’re talking about yeah so there is a like a stump over there and i think you’re referring to that stump hey paul hey thanks for joining as a member man thank you i’m not sure what the largest crane is michael thanks for checking in let me uh just finish up with what i’m looking at here just a minute yeah sitting on the ground diddy yeah that’s right that’s right so i’ll leave this on for a while i’m not sure if anything’s gonna happen or not um it’s kind of um you know this is this is what’s going on right now nothing like you gotta stop everything and look at this is uh this is what’s going on yeah the large crane okay that’s the lever also i didn’t know that okay okay thanks and to the left of the on the bottom left of the screen there’s some of that black piping which was uh just came in a couple days ago and there’s a lot of there’s some questions about what it might be used for but there there is some black piping over there uh barry i’ve heard that there is one uh raptor stool here i haven’t seen it myself but i’ve heard there is one raptor still here uh that’s some kind of mud pad that they’re driving over yeah good luck everybody attila barry yeah uh there’s oscar there’s supposed to be one raptor on the b3 yeah boot scrubber yeah went up right and to the right is there’s a lot of dirt over there or uh that yellow stuff and i mean it could be used to concrete a new area or something like that again not sure if it’s going to be as wide or or have four corners uh section eight they’re not sure i’m not sure where they’re pouring the concrete but they got plenty of the uh maybe in back of the tower there’s a whole two two areas behind that they’re gonna be they’re gonna be doing some stuff here two trucks coming by watch your watch your screen here that’s a water truck that maybe they’re filling up the gsc tank with or some kind of water tank i’m not sure with all right a lot of people are coming here for the weekend it’s friday so i’m gonna try and pan up and um not get all the cars coming by excuse me for the uh for the angle here okay you want to be in it okay he wants me namaste all right that was a that was an actual request to be in the the video here so let me uh fix the uh see the tower with the lens the tower it’s tricky you gotta be you gotta have it in the center watch see the tower’s in the center here but um but if i move the camera if i move it this way you know the tower starts to lean okay wait wait uh you you like the leaning tower i don’t like the laning tower i gotta i just gotta fix my tripod just a minute okay here we go here we go i had done so many crazy angles that the you know the tripod was starting to lean and everything you know i’m gonna fix it even a little bit more and i’ll go from like a better better start point here we go let me let me let me not get those people on camera here all right i’m gonna zoom in sorry about that okay here we go sorry sorry okay okay here we go yeah the road is just gravel now but they they dug down like five to five to eight five to eight feet depending on some areas and they dug up and they took out all the thanks uh iron it they took out truckloads of dirt all along this long road and i got some i did some videos of that over the last month or two uh where they’re digging out all the dirt and then they put in large stone and they they layered in some fabric and then they did a foot or two of that yellow gravel stuff all along this beach road it took them several weeks yeah at the moment lee they’re working on the gse tanks um and they’re also building this uh yellow structure in front of us they’re doing a lot of grinding and welding all over the site and they just yesterday they kind of put together that ninth section in front of us that grave section that’ll that’ll go on top of the tower hey mr john johnson jonette joe asses sorry the sun here is uh it makes a little bit difficult to see the screen uh um okay black thing on the road in front of me oh yeah that’s not like uh it gets the mud out of the tires yeah paul okay oh you live 15 50 km from the leaning tower oh that’s cool in paris or something giovanni awesome from italy thanks tiki i didn’t know that thank you i’m one of those people who likes to get right up in there so whatever that means to you i like to see it for myself you know so um hey black navy um some people on twitter have commented on what it is apparently there was some discussion uh on uh some of the other live streams about what it is too i’m not up to speed on what it is but if you look on the twitter there’s uh or people here can comment on what that nose cone is i’m not sure what it is what the actual description of it is uh yeah barry and during the day time the mosquitoes are less but at nighttime and in the morning there are mosquitoes and at different locations here like between the between this launch location and the builds and the build site it’s a two mile stretch of road and there are there’s pools of water over there and that’s there’s a lot of mosquitoes over there in between the two sites anything on the catching arm not yet not as far as i know um alfin oh the view is good from the back of my truck man paul but um i’m actually on on solid ground right now with a tripod the truck is great for getting high shots so i can zoom in more on some of these things if you’d like to see it hey name not showing good morning man uh yeah oh and next to the launch tower um what goes on there is a i can focus on that i’m not sure name not showing about what the effect will be on the local wildlife i’m not sure but they’ve uh they’ve walled in the area and i’m not sure now someone else will have to comment on that i’m not you know so next to the tower we see the on the left we see the orbital launch area that those white stilts maybe it’s a platform or maybe that’s the i’m not sure what it’s called and on top of that is going to be a large table or platform and so there are different words that people like to use but that is the to the left of the tower is that white structure and uh they occasionally do some welding on it now but it seems to be ready for the next piece which will go on top the starships will go on top of that white structure to the left of the tower oh the over launch mount okay uh marcus thanks thanks marcus i’m gonna pan up a little bit well maybe not maybe not and so and below the tower at the base of the tower i get a better shot of this at the base of the tower is um there’s like an awning and there there is there is a you can see like an awning there and there’s like a a spool which doesn’t have anything on it but uh on the other side i’ll use my hand this uh this area here um so there’s like an awning there and if you go around that clockwise um looking up now i’ll use my hand yeah i won’t use man but on the other side there is a large machine to uh to maybe um help lift something a giant winch that’s right barry i think i’ll do another 10 minutes and then i’ll end this live stream and start another one down the road if something happens hey good morning alan mumbai awesome awesome yeah we can do that um i think but uh that’ll i’ll keep it in mind we gotta figure out how to do that if you know how to do that let me know you know send me a maybe comment on a video on how to add that time local time to the screen here i’d also like to use do a 1080. i’m i’m doing 720 but oh you want to zoom in on 9 yeah i can do that but but i no i couldn’t figure out how to do the uh 1080 uh with the just a straight live streamer here on youtube i can do it in another software but then i couldn’t zoom so hey rob from canada awesome man lars robke morning ian puervo kid the bracket’s on the left side okay hopefully that’s good enough i can zoom more but it’s going to get blurry if i do i’ll zoom a little bit more that’s uh that’s as good as i can really get without losing the the shot there matthew from the uk hello man yeah baby steps all right thanks aaron head yep okay yeah nourish narus i could do 60 fps on a on a video so i can edit those on a video i haven’t learned if i can edit them straight with the youtube live and so if i can uh if there’s a way i can uh modify the uh fbs with this uh with youtube live i’ll do that thanks it’s good to know if uh if i have it at 60 it’ll be smoother that’s good thanks okay i’m looking the brackets look to be going to the left uh on the ninth section there so it looks like they’ll be attaching to something uh i don’t think they’re they’re not pointing toward each other i think they’re pointing to the left almost like there’s gonna be something on the left there of the nine sections so that’s a good question at the top of the off the top of the ninth section there you can see there are some brackets and the brackets don’t appear to be facing the opposite sides there they appear to be pointing to the left so that’s a good observation for me it looks like there’s three so far and it looks like there is a room for a fourth to be put in if if they decide to yeah pointing toward the taller rusty column okay mark appreciate it far from the city yeah you want to see the tower sure yeah i’m gonna zoom up because i haven’t done it in like uh half hour or so so i wanna i’m gonna get the whole tower i might have to zoom out or back up i might have to back up i think i got it though i can zoom up a little bit more i’ll lose a little bit of the bass thanks y’all keep up with the good content i appreciate the uh the appreciation yeah it is big thanks thomas hello from bluegrass state awesome kentucky or tennessee i’m not sure which one but awesome thanks for the support thomas that’s awesome anything hooked a kong kong is is not hooked to anything right now i can continue the pan up to see the top of kong i’ll do that for you all this is going to be a little bit of a trip we’re going to lose the ground here i’m going to go up ready so i’m going to go get kong 100 here we go there we go oh kentucky good good good i thought it was kentucky yeah kong is big hey the predator belle vega cheesy crips that’s big yep i’ll keep it here for a couple minutes yep this is all just an iphone truck pro max some better equipment might be uh definitely coming in at some time thanks yeah i’m using a tripod andrew this would be some pretty good uh keeping it still yeah i’m using a tripod right now hey bruce in louisville awesome yeah it’s a good phone it’s a good phone if i uh if i backed up about 30 feet i could maybe get the whole thing in a you know in a good close-up or something i don’t know oh you want to see the girl
