Wednesday is the latest target date for a launch of SpaceX's newest Starship.

After four successful test flights of the space company's next-generation rocket prototypes all ended in dramatic explosions during the landing phase, SpaceX is skipping ahead to SN15, a new version of its interplanetary vehicle.

Elon Musk's space company has conducted high-altitude test flights of prototypes SN8 through SN11 and has long planned to integrate what Musk has called "major upgrades" into SN15.

Musk has said SN15 "has hundreds of design improvements across structures, avionics/software and engine," including, hopefully, upgrades to cover some of the problems that have prevented SpaceX from sticking the landing so far without a rapid unscheduled disassembly.

Last Thursday, the FAA said it had approved a launch license covering SN15, SN16 and SN17, but it currently looks like we'll have to wait till at least Wednesday to see it fly, according to current airspace, road and beach closures around the Boca Chica, Texas,  launch facility.
