SpaceX’s First Starship Launch Attempt Fails
The rocket, Starship, was left grounded on its launch-pad in South Texas due to technical issues.
On Monday, SpaceX attempted to launch the most powerful rocket ever built off the ground.
The rocket, Starship, was left grounded on its launch-pad in South Texas due to technical issues, delaying the historic first launch attempt. It was said that a “pressurant valve was frozen” and unable to operate.
The team kept the countdown clock going as a practice run after making the decision to call off the launch.
SpaceX is now targeting Thursday for its next attempt. The window will open at 9:28a.m. and close at 10:30a.m..
The company plans to live-stream the launch attempt on its website, which will start 45 minutes before lift-off.
