However, the company is still awaiting final approval from US regulatory authorities.. However, he is already “looking to the future” with confidence and plans to launch a live broadcast about half an hour before the start.
The world's largest rocket, Starship, is currently being finalized in Boca Chica, Texas.. SpaceX's latest estimate for Starship's launch date follows a recent ramp-up in Texas, during which the company tested a fully assembled rocket on the launch pad and installed an abort system.
The first launch attempt was unsuccessful, it took place on April 20, 2023. Then the Starship upper stage was unable to separate from the Super Heavy launch vehicle as planned.. SpaceX sent a command to self-destruct the ship a few minutes after launch. The incredibly powerful rocket even damaged the orbital launcher at Starbase and made a large crater in the concrete.
