The head of the company, Elon Musk, who captioned these pictures “Beautiful photos of Starship. A bright future for space exploration. Made by people on Earth,” published photographs of the launch pad:
I just inspected the spaceship launch pad, it is in excellent condition! The water-cooled steel plate does not require repair for the next run.. Congratulations to the SpaceX team and contractors for designing such a fast and reliable system!
