SpaceX test launches massive super-heavy booster for starship for the first time (video)

SpaceX fired a massive booster rocket on Monday night (July 19) for its new Starship spacecraft, a brief test of its kind for the company’s ambitious new launch system.

This superb stainless steel booster, called the Super Heavy, ignited three Raptor engines in a short “static fire” test on a pad at the SpaceX Star Base facility in Boca Chika, South Texas. Booster 3, as it is specifically known as Super Heavy, is the latest in a series of prototypes of SpaceX’s Starship program, aimed exclusively for trips to the Moon, Mars and beyond. To develop a reusable launch system.
