SpaceX may launch the first Starship into orbit in the coming months

It was previously planned that Starship would take off in 2021, but this did not happen due to the lack of a number of permits. But now they are received.

If all goes according to plan, SpaceX will send a Starship prototype called Ship 24 into space. It is being prepared for launch at Starbase in Texas. It is planned to launch the ship using a Super Heavy rocket (codenamed Booster 7), which, after launch, should splash down on an unmanned offshore platform in the Gulf of Mexico. At this time, Ship 24 will circle the Earth once, after which it will land.

Note that Starship previously flew into the air back in 2021. Then he took off about 10 km. In the future, it is planned to use this ship for flights to the Moon and Mars.
