SpaceX Successfully Completes Star Hopper Test
NEAR BROWNSVILLE – SpaceX founder, Elon Musk, posted a dramatic video of the successful Star Hopper test.
SpaceX ground crews at Boca Chica conducted the first firing of the Starship Hopper’s raptor rocket engine Wednesday.
The Starship Hopper was transported from the SpaceX yard, roughly 1.5 miles east to the launch site on March 8, in preparation for testing.
Cameron County Judge Eddie Trevino Jr. says it’s his understanding that SpaceX may cause testing at the site for up to 60 days after the current round is complete.
SpaceX did not confirm a specific timeline after testing objectives are complete.
