History

Test Tank 2 (TT2) was a test tank built by SpaceX.

The tank was constructed in January 2020, and was rolled out to the testing area on 27 January.

Two tests took place using the tank, the first occurred on 27 January where it achieved a pressure of 7.5 bar at room temperature before a small leak developed.

After repairs were made to the tank, it was tested again two days later on 29 January where it was tested until it was destroyed.
