SpaceX launch: Elon Musk to attempt major Starship milestone

Two of the most famous iterations of Starship, dubbed SN5 and SN6, also lacked the eye-catching large control flaps on either side of the nosecone, intended to control its trajectory.

SN7 was a test tank SpaceX intentionally burst during a pressure trial in June this year.

But Mr Musk appears to have confirmed SN8 will have both.

This prototype will also undergo the same early testing and its previous versions.
