Elon Musk says the Starship will be “ready to fly” into Earth orbit next month

We finally know when that will happen.

Elon Musk said that “Starship will be ready to fly next month” in Tuesday Tweet. This comes on the heels of years of seemingly endless delays and divisions with the federal government — not to mention legal tug-of-wars with other airlines, such as Blue Origin, for NASA contracts.

“I was in the review process at High & Mega Bay late last night,” Musk added in the same tweet.

Elon Musk’s spacecraft prepares for first orbital flight

The first orbital flight of SpaceX’s massive moon rocket has been repeatedly delayed, mainly due to the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Environmental Assessment, which was completed on Monday — after a year and a half of deliberation — showing that the Starship had been cleared for the flights. highly anticipated orbital.

Assuming, of course, that SpaceX will comply with approximately 75 environmental regulations, relating to its launch practices. Now that SpaceX has received the green light from the FAA and the Starship and Super Heavy fitted below, it will soon launch from SpaceX’s Boca Chica facility in Sout Texas, Starbase, and begin its journey into Earth orbit.

Once there, it will re-enter the precious atmosphere, landing near Hawaii on a platform waiting for its return. However, while this is a historic leap closer to the spacecraft’s first flight into orbit, we should be cautiously optimistic – because Musk has often been known to stick to very ambitious schedules, which are later delayed due to complications.

This isn’t entirely wishful thinking, remember: No one has launched a Starship-capable rocket into space before. It’s the most powerful rocket ever built, can be reused for cargo or human missions, and is designed to bring humans back to the Moon as a mainstay for NASA’s Artemis program, eventually slated to put the first humans on Mars. That’s too much for one vehicle to carry on its shoulders.

You could say it’s the most ambitious car ever. There is more than one.

Elon Musk SpaceX’s SpaceX leads the Space 2.0 race

With several prototypes built, tested, smashed or recovered, Musk also plans to have SpaceX “a second vehicle package ready to fly in August and then monthly thereafter,” according to Follow Tweet. This is a world-historic degree of acceleration in missile construction and launch flow.

But Musk was insisting on his enthusiasm and confidence in his company’s huge missile, Twitter: “For the first time there is a missile capable of establishing permanent bases on the Moon and Mars.”

This missile has seen constant development in the small town of Boca Chica, Texas, for years. At an altitude of 400 feet (121.02 m), the “Fully Stacked Spacecraft” stands ready to permanently change the nature of human spaceflight. All that is required of us is to sit and watch. And try not to miss the dawn of a new chapter in Space Race 2.0.
