Musk says Starship might see first orbital launch in March

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida: In a tweet this weekend, Elon Musk said that SpaceX may attempt a Starship rocket system launch in March.

In a response to a user’s tweet about Starship, Musk said, "If remaining tests go well, we will attempt a Starship launch next month."

In January, the billionaire head of SpaceX said that there was a "real shot" at launching Starship in late February, with a March launch being highly likely.

Since 2022, SpaceX has been planning the launch of Starship into orbit for the first time, with the overall aims of transporting NASA astronauts to the moon.
