SpaceX has begun staging and
assembling parts of a giant crane it will soon need to stack Starship’s first East Coast launch tower and install other major launch pad components.
The presence of the base
of that crane at SpaceX’s NASA Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Launch Complex 39A was visually confirmed
Four days later, Teslarati photographer
Richard Angle observed more major crane components on their way to Pad 39A, including the crane’s cabin.
More likely than not,
the crane SpaceX or its contractor has begun assembling at 39A is a Liebherr LR 11350
The same kind of crane
the company used to assemble Starship’s first orbital launch site and tower in South Texas.
In fact, given how few
LR 11350s there are in existence, it’s entirely possible that it’s the exact same crane.
