Starship Hopper Moves to Launch Site

Local News

The booster portion of the Starship Hopper prototype has been moved.

It’s been on the construction site for months, but is now on the launch pad. SpaceX announced the move saying it was in preparation for testing in the near future.

Those tests will happen in the days to come, but the public will not be allowed near the site to see them. SpaceX will establish a safety zone and law enforcement will keep people away from the area as a safety precaution.
