“You essentially get to a point where you have looked under every rock and verify that there’s nothing more for you to do to verify that the system is ready. That’s what we have done. We’ve gone through an enormous amount of tests, we’ve essentially done everything that we can think of that we should do including fill the rocket up with cryogenics and fuel and pressure and and fly it out to the drop.” — Will Pomerantz
