SpaceX Starship launch: SN9 edges closer to Monday launch after latest static fire test

  • January 23, 2021

Just before 11pm on Thursday (UK Time), the Starship fired its Raptor engines for the first in a series of pre-flight wet rehearsals.

Another static fire test was conducted on the foggy launchpad on Friday, less than a minute before 3pm GMT (9am CST).

Spaceflight photographer John Kraus tweeted: “Starship SN9 conducted a static fire this morning, hopefully paving the way for flight soon.

“I’m back in Florida now, but I’m hoping to head back to Texas to see SN9 take to the skies — and maybe stick the landing!”
