SpaceX has a render of Starship launching from a tall launch mount. How tall is the launch mount not including the tower or launch hardware?

    $\begingroup$ I'm not the down voter, but you're asking how tall something "is" that doesn't exist. $\endgroup$ – Organic Marble Aug 26 '20 at 16:04
  • $\begingroup$ @OrganicMarble Yeah I get your point, but it does "exist" on a blueprint somewhere. I guess I should call SpaceX and simply ask them. $\endgroup$ – D_Bester Aug 26 '20 at 17:22
  • $\begingroup$ Considering that they're literally changing Starship on a weekly basis and haven't even started on Superheavy yet, I highly doubt that there are blueprints, and if there are, they are probably outdated by the time I finish writing this sentence. The image you posted seems already outdated, since the Starship is missing the "arm" flaps. $\endgroup$ – Jörg W Mittag Aug 27 '20 at 14:31

Launch Mount render:

enter image description here

My measurements of the render: 181 pixels for Starship upper stage; 428 pixels for Starship Super Heavy; 110 pixels for launch mount.

The proportional height of the launch mount is very close to 100 ft / 30 m.
