Is this the prototype for what they intend to use to land people on the moon?

It’s similar.

Lunar Starship won’t have the moving fins because it won’t be performing an aerobraking maneuver. It will instead have a series of smaller descent engines higher up on the rocket, but otherwise, yes, this is what NASA has chosen for the lunar lander.

I saw that too. It would be awesome if they re-flew 15 instead of, say 17. We’ll see after they have a chance to look it over.

Cosmic Perspective's video montage of SN15's flight is up. Lots of good, high res and slow motion video.

Full screen viewing is highly recommended.

... oh, and as if that wasn't cool enough, right now (11 May 21), they've moved SN15 BACK to the launch pad and are getting ready to raise it onto the stand!

Here comes round 2!
