SAINT FRANCIS: On Sunday, tech tycoon Elon Musk announced that his deep space rocket Starship is primed and ready for launch from SpaceX’s headquarters in the United States.
However, “Starship is ready to launch,” the first flight is contingent on license approval from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
Elon Musk tweeted-
“Starship is ready for launch. Awaiting regulatory approval.”
Reportedly scheduled on April 17, the rocket will conduct an orbital test flight. The most powerful rocket in the world, Starship will be used to transport humans to the Moon and then onto Mars.
The first stage of Starship is a massive rocket named Super Heavy, and the second stage is a spacecraft called Starship that is 50 meters in length. Both the Super Heavy (33) and the Starship (6) are powered by SpaceX’s next-gen Raptor engines, and both are made of stainless steel for maximum durability and speedy reuse.
In addition, Mul recently stated that SpaceX’s massive Starship vehicle’s first orbital flight has a mere 50% chance of success. Nonetheless, he emphasized that SpaceX is constructing several Spaceships parked in South Texas.
There is a good probability that one of these will make it into orbit this year; the launches are scheduled to occur pretty frequently over the next few months.
