SpaceX is ready to launch the spacecraft in a few weeks, but the launch date is subject to FAA licensing.

The first orbital flight of the super-heavy launch vehicle Starship could take place in April this year. This was announced on March 17 on Twitter by SpaceX founder Elon Musk.

“SpaceX will be ready to launch the Starship rocket within a few weeks. Again, the launch date is subject to the issuance of a launch license by the US Federal Aviation Administration,” Musk wrote.

According to him, since the process will take several weeks, “an attempt to launch will be made at the end of the third week of April.”

Recall that SpaceX planned to carry out the first orbital launch of the rocket in 2021, but then the launch date was repeatedly postponed.

The reason is the requirements of the US Federal Aviation Administration for the Boca Chica spaceport to protect the environment.

The reusable rocket system consists of the Starship spacecraft and the Super Heavy carrier. Its height reaches 120 meters.
