SpaceX gearing up for 12-mile-high test flight with Starship SN8 prototype



The next big leap for SpaceX’s Mars-colonizing Starship spacecraft appears to be right around the corner.

Two full-size Starship prototypes, known as SN5 and SN6, recently performed 500-foot-high (150 meters) test hops at SpaceX’s South Texas facilities, near the village of Boca Chica. And the next vehicle in line is nearly ready to soar much higher, company founder and CEO Elon Musk said.
