SpaceX has obtained a launch license for the fourth test flight of its Starship rocket. The Starship, known as the most powerful launch vehicle ever built, is scheduled to launch from SpaceX’s private Starbase facility in Boca Chica, Texas. The launch window opens at 8 a.m. ET on Thursday. The Federal Aviation Administration approved the flight test, stating that SpaceX has met all safety and licensing requirements. The test aims to demonstrate the ability to return and reuse the Starship and Super Heavy booster. Previous test flights experienced failures, but SpaceX views these mishaps as opportunities for improvement.
