@CowboyDanPaasch @MarineTraffic Maybe, but this time it's a bug with @MarineTraffic . If you hover over the ship it says the destination is San Pedro CA. That's where the Port of LA is located. However, the info box says San Pedro Belize.

#spacex fairing recovery ship Mr. Steven left the Port of LA for a second time. Yesterday, it spent about 4 hours out at sea. They are likely conducting tests. @MarineTraffic is still reporting the wrong destination. 😂 It will return to LA. https://t.co/fOxOTY3VPs

Mr. Steven has returned to the Port of LA, confirming that the original destination on MarineTraffic was incorrect. Looks like a potential test run. https://t.co/Hep8soLy4P

and it turns out that the Port of LA is in San Pedro CA. Therefore, it's likely that someone made an error and entered the wrong port. Mr. Steven is currently heading north. Most likely, it will return to LA. Apologizes again for the confusion. MarineTraffic is usually reliable.

Ok, the tweet about Mr. Steven heading for the Panama Canal has been removed. It appears that https://t.co/Wf0945NB9c is reporting the wrong port. Apologies for the confusion. This is instead probably some sort of test. The port reported was San Pedro Belize... (1/?)

@valleyhack And if you need to launch a constellation, it may make sense to just buy a dedicated Falcon 9 versus 15 Electron launches. Depends on the circumstance. Small sat launchers will be viable because of the dedicated capability. However, fully reusable BFR might be a problem for them.

@valleyhack Then you pay a lot more money than a rideshare would have cost you.

@valleyhack Yeah, and I am saying not at all. 😝

@valleyhack "cheapest commercial rocket ever" #falcon9 cost per kg: $2,632 #electron cost per kg: $22,222 Now there are areas where Electron is much better for small sats, but costs is not one of them. $5 million to put a couple cubesats into orbit is anything but cheap.
