After Starship rehearsal fire, Elon Musk expects 150 million hop ‘soon’



Elon Musk’s hopes for the Starship to reach orbit before this spring did not materialize much, but a recently fired test has the CEO of SpaceX looking forward to seeing the company’s new vehicle take off soon. On Thursday he tweeted that its new SN5 construction completed a full-duration static fire and said a 150-meter hop would happen “soon”. Sure, ten days ago he said there would be a flight attempt within a week, but they are progressing.

Last August we saw a SpaceX SpaceXopper test vehicle complete a “bounce” backed by 150 million Raptors and sooner or later the current Starship will make a similar test flight. The company has continued to repeat its modeling and pressure test prototypes – remember the end of the SN4 – as it moves closer to the actual flight. If there is any information in an event publication, we will let you know. Even with Dragon Crew scheduled for a comeback this weekend, SpaceX’s priority is the Starship project.
