Default SN15 Hop

This whole article is a spoiler, else it wouldn't be here.

It appears SN15 successfully competed it's hop. As of 5:50pm CDT anyway.

Congratulations to SpaceX. This is historic. The next major milestones:

* Test of Super Heavy.
* On-orbit test of vacuum Raptors.
* Recovery of Starship from orbit.
* Orbital refueling.
* Uncrewed moon landing and return?
* Crewed moon landing?

I'd add to that higher altitude testing of Starship to test the thermal
protection system. They should be able to do that without Super Heavy.
