SpaceX CEO Elon Musk invited a fan and vlogger to have a chat for a possible SpaceX SN8 Starship Tour and in-person presentation at the space agencies’ headquarters soon.

Musk’s Twitter account gets flooded with requests daily, with users tagging Musk in different sightings of his product, such as Tesla vehicle videos, Starship spacecraft lines, and updates from the several companies that he manages.

SpaceX Starship

SpaceX’s most recent project is the SN8 Starship, which offers one of the most promising technologies on intergalactic travels. The reusable spacecraft is one of SpaceX’s most discussed inventions of the company, primarily due to its stainless steel design and nose flaps.

The SN8 Starship recently encountered a problem with its design and assembly because of the attaching nose flaps that could detach once on space’s rigorous conditions. Heat Proofing tiles cannot answer the moving flap’s problem that melts on high-heat upon departure and descent.

Tim Dodd, a vlogger, joins the conversation on Twitter about the photo of the SN8 Starship that is currently under assembly. The fan took the photo on SpaceX’s Launch Facility on Boca Chica, towering on its feet.

Another fan requested an update of the SN8 Starship from Musk, to which the CEO answered that SpaceX would provide it in the form of a written piece on the company’s website.

Dodd asked for a tour of the Boca Chica facility, particularly in the SN8 Starship’s location. The suggestion of Dodd grasped Musk’s attention, to which the CEO suggested a talk with Dodd during his weekly visit to Boca Chica.

Elon Musk wants a design clarification to SN8’s most recent changes and upgrades that the public already notices. The SN8 Starship is known to undergo several changes because its design flaw affects its returning mechanism and control, the moving nose flaps, that the company already made alterations to.
