SpaceX’s latest Starship Super Heavy booster is back on the launch pad, this time with its full complement of 33 engines.

SpaceX placed the Super Heavy prototype, known as Booster 7, onto its orbital launch mount at Starbase, the company’s South Texas facility, on Tuesday (Aug. 23). The heavy lifting was done by “Mechazilla,” as SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk has dubbed Starbase’s 469-foot-tall (143-meter tall) launch tower.
