Yesterday, SpaceX performed a full static fire on their Starhopper rocket at their South Texas Launch Site in Boca Chica. You don’t even have to look too carefully, to see the huge fireball that happened after the, probably, successful test. If you can, watch it in 4K-Quality (or at least 1080p) for a crisp image. The Starhopper is the current SpaceX Starship test flight rocket. On it are various tests of the integrated raptor engines performed, as well as low-velocity flight testing of launches and landings. Starship will, someday, feature a capacity of up to 100 people (as of current plans), and will be 55 m in height – a flying house with a diameter of 9 metres.
