The prototype #starship SN8 will have to rise to an altitude of 15 to 20 km. This product is equipped with 3 engines, and the serial ship will have 6 methane-oxygen #raptors, each of which is capable of developing more than 200 tons of thrust at full throttle.

Before the «high jump» is made, static burn of the engines will take place. This time, all three motors will be turned on simultaneously, for at least 10 seconds. This part of the test is just as important to check the correct synchronization of the motors. If the static tests are successful, then a test flight will be completed by the end of the month.

A warning has already been sent to residents of residential buildings close to the complex, which says:

Several test items are currently being assembled at the #spacex facility in Boca Chica, South Texas.
