"ICE is dead" is an often heard claim, and while it is true in one sense, in the above sense it is alive and kicking: Intelligent design and use of manufacturing improvements to create better products at lower prices, and in shorter timespans.
ICE is al but dead when it concerns internal combustion engines, and the ICE car industry and big oil know it. They just don't want to give up yet, and fight to delay the inevitable, spending about half of their daily profits in the process to protect the other half of their excessive profits on cars and oil.
This gives a nice inside view of how Starship is being stacked, and how the technology of stage zero is keeping the Starship from crashing into the tower. This is a great example how SpaceX uses intelligent measurements to avoid excess in deviations from a normal launch.
