SpaceX launch - live: Pivotal test of Starship SN15 set for this week - The Independent
May 03, 2021 1 min, 22 secs

SpaceX scrubbed the latest Starship test, which was set to launch from its Starbase facility in Texas on Friday, however Elon Musk’s company appears to be aiming for either Tuesday or Wednesday.

Airspace clearance had been approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), road closures were in place with Cameron County, and marine hazard notices had been issued.

There will be no Starship SN15 flight test today, after the Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) was removed for Monday.

It warns that “space flight activities” between 5am and 7pm could pose a danger to local residents of Boca Chica Village.

There are currently no road closures in place around the Starbase facility in Boca Chica, suggesting that whatever testing is going on is not a flight test.

Cameron County has just updated its website, cancelling the road closures that were in place today.

No reason has been given, and there’s been no official word from SpaceX, but that signals that today’s Starship SN15 launch is off.

These include airspace clearance and flight approval with the FAA, local road closures in place with Cameron County, evacuation of the nearby Boca Chica Village, a marine hazard notice posting - as well as all the technical preparations for the actual rocket itself.

It’s for this reason that SpaceX doesn’t actually publicise its launch attempt times until just a few minutes to go, but we know it could be anytime between now and 5pm local time (11pm BST), as per the road closures in place?
