SpaceX Starship: Elon Musk drops hint over MAJOR test update

And so it has proved, with the landing gear used in yesterday’s test involving legs switching from attachment points inside Starship’s fuselage.

The South African billionaire then answered a question from Twitter user Pranay Pathole, who asked: “What’s next, Elon? 20km hop?”

Mr Musk tweeted in response: “We’ll do several short hops to smooth out launch process, then go high altitude with body flaps.”

This suggests the next round of Starship tests may well see the SpaceX rocket fly much higher.
