SpaceX's largest rocket, Starship, is practically ready to undergo the fourth phase of testing, which will include an attempt to launch it. Elon Musk has just revealed the expected date of this event.

A great moment is coming for fans of space travel. According to Elon Musk's latest announcements, Starship is scheduled to launch approximately in the next two weeks. Space enthusiasts keep their fingers crossed for the successful flight of this impressive vehicle.

This time it will work

During the last test flight, which took place on March 14, 2024, the rocket crossed the border of space, performing a number of previously planned activities, such as opening the cargo hatch. Unfortunately, it was destroyed during the return journey.

This time, the company's main goal was to overcome the critical point where the vehicle is most likely to heat up during its return to Earth. Entering the atmosphere is one of the most critical moments, as the vehicle is subjected to enormous dynamic loads and at the same time it heats up to extreme temperatures.

The largest rocket in history

Starship is a giant, reusable space rocket designed and built by SpaceX under the leadership of Elon Musk. It is part of a broader project known as Starship and Super Heavy, which includes both a launch vehicle, i.e. Super Heavy, and a spacecraft, i.e. Starship.

The main goal of Starship is to enable future space missions, including travel to Mars and beyond into space. This is SpaceX's most ambitious project yet and aims to revolutionize interplanetary travel.

Reusable rocket

Starship is designed with reusability in mind, meaning it can be launched and landed multiple times to minimize costs and enable more frequent space missions. Its structure consists of stainless steel, which is an innovative approach to traditional rackets that usually use composite materials.

Starship also has impressive payload capabilities, the ability to carry payloads of up to 100 tons into orbit, making it one of the most powerful spacecraft in history. It can also accommodate up to 100 passengers, opening the door to future interplanetary travel for both astronauts and space tourists.
