(About the upcoming flight to the ISS.)
EDIT: And about the steps towards Mars civilization. Round trips as well as one-way.

Buying an EV is one thing, being able to drive it beyond city limits another...
Just completed a Static Test Fire -- basically emulating launch day, except they don't let go of the rocket, and then shut the engines down after 2 seconds of full-thrust operation.
There was one unplanned hold at T-27 seconds, they eventually recycled to T-20 minutes and did it again, successfully the second time. If that happened on launch day, it would have required a bump to the next available day for launch (instantaneous launch window, no room for unplanned holds or aborts/resets.)
