Starting to think the announcement may very well be SpaceX related
I'm sure most remember [this tweet](https://twitter.com/paulmadsen/status/1415043710279163915?s=19) by Paul Madsen (ex hedera employee) some months back and we speculated all sorts of things:
>All I'm saying is that I've been telling my (hbar invested) kids to 'get ready' with a knowing smile for 2 months
We still don't know for sure what he was eluding to.
A week later [tweets](https://twitter.com/paulmadsen/status/1418153402714963971) this:
>I can't tell you how many times I corrected him on Zoom calls - 'dude, it's hash*graph* not #hashledger ' I'd say with an eye roll and shake of my head and we would both laugh. Good times.
He's referring to Elon. So we can assume he and Musk are tight.
Fast forward a couple months:
[Today there were 30M+ testnet transactions](https://preview.redd.it/c4t34xa0ujn71.jpg?width=925&auto=webp&s=ad830412f915cefc41fc85a17b5e40d64358b38f). Likely a large use case.
[SpaceX will be launching it's first human spaceflight](https://www.spacex.com/launches/) on Wed Sep 15 **(one day before Hedera's announcement date**). As well, [SpaceX launches 51 Starlink internet satellites in the constellation's 1st West Coast launch](https://www.space.com/spacex-starlink-satellites-1st-west-coast-launch).
A Hedera node could be tucked away somewhere in there.
Nice to see #HBAR where it belongs (in my opinion, at least). It’s accumulating and growing slowly, which is a good sign. pic.twitter.com/7WvHlXbR3o— Nikhil Chinapa (@nikhilchinapa) September 14, 2021...
