The license was granted by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration last Friday. This license was the final frontier that limited the progress of testing the novel launch technology in practice.

The launch should happen tomorrow, April 17. The precise hour was not disclosed, but it should happen from 5:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Central time. It will be performed from the SpaceX Starbase facility in Boca Chica, Texas – this schedule has been confirmed by the company itself on Twitter.


“After a comprehensive license evaluation process, the FAA determined SpaceX met all safety, environmental, policy, payload, airspace integration and financial responsibility requirements,” stated FAA in its official announcement.

Previously, SpaceX targeted earlier dates for the launch of its Starship rocket, but the licensing process delayed the original plans.  The rocket is expected to demonstrate its orbital flight capabilities.
