SpaceX advanced its Starship program Thursday, conducting a successful test hop of the SN6 prototype. The vehicle, powered by SpaceX’s next-generation Raptor engine, climbed to about 150 meters above the company’s complex in Boca Chica, Texas before landing safely.

I've recently partnered with Maria Pointer to produce Boca Chica and SpaceX Starship documentary videos. Maria and her husband Ray moved to Boca Chica 20 years ago and then... SpaceX moved in next door. Here's our latest video of the hop.

We're pushing the technical boundaries as far as our equipment will allow and more improvements are on the schedule.

Please like and subscribe to help us with those pesky YouTube algorithms. Thanks to all my Teslaite brethren!!!

Fred, SpaceX is continuing to launch F9’s regularly, and there will be more Starship test flights this year. I also look forward to them and enjoy watching them because they are a positive development during these trying times.

SpaceX is launching at least twice a month, weather permitting, here at the Cape. Rate will probably increase as the rainy season ends. There is plenty to look forward to.

That is SpaceX, not the government: not specifying the exact date, time, and location means your data is ambiguous. Yes, you specified location, and there there are only roughly less than or equal to one launches per day right now, but you're already ambiguous about which week that was. Please stop using a government standard for an actively engaged company. SpaceX is a moving entity. It even escapes anti-innovation state governments when necessary (although I do wish to have this state become pro-innovation again and win back some of SpaceX's business).
