Word on the street is that this will be put into orbit as kind of a “dummy” fuel depot. They will test maneuvers, movements, temperature changes, heat shield, and other stuff necessary for the fuel depot as well as fly future Starships near it to practice for their first attempt at transferring fuel. Shotwell has stated that Starlink is being put back in favor of HLS milestones

A couple of questions..

  1. How long did the shuttle orbit Earth?
  2. Where do the crew members eat, sleep, and work? The area forward of the payload bay looks tiny.
  3. What exactly did work consist of for a crew member on the shuttle?
