SpaceX test flight underway


MGN Online

BROWNSVILLE, Texas – A second attempt at liftoff for SpaceX near Boca Chica Beach. Currently, crews are preparing for a 150 meter test of the prototype Starhopper.

We’re watching a live view from our friends at LabPadre on YouTube. If successful, the hopper will fly close to 500 feet and come down to the launch pad, all on it’s own without a human pilot.

This is part of the company’s effort to create reusable space vehicles.
