    Great analysis of the carbon fiber buy. I’d thought it were for the “BFR”, but it’s too early for that. They keep upgrading their equipment. Changing material should be a great engineering challenge. But with modern engineering, and foresightfully having had this as a potential from the beginning, yeah, of course! You draw great conclusions, Bob.
