The prototype Starship spacecraft could make its first orbital flight in August. This was announced by Elon Musk. “If testing goes well then next month” – The head of SpaceX posted on Twitter to answer a question about the ship’s readiness to go to low Earth orbit.
Remember that an explosion and fire took place on Tuesday during the Starship test of the Super Heavy Booster 7 rocket vehicle. Elon Musk stated that the problem occurred when the engine was started, but that it caused only minor damage to the rocket.
Starship, a reusable spacecraft designed for Mars flights, is capable of carrying 100 people. The ship’s prototypes have been tested several times and returned to Earth. However, they have not yet reached the Earth’s atmosphere.
