The first launch of Elon Musk’s company SpaceX rocket Starship didn’t make a good impression on its first launch after it burst into flames. Now, reports indicate that the company is ready for a second aviation launch.

Musk took to Twitter this Tuesday (13) and one internet user responded by reporting this The new Starship flight test will take place in the next six to eight weeks..

Starship made its maiden launch on April 20 and achieved less than ideal results as several of its rocket engines failed mid-flight, causing the two-stage heavy-lift launch vehicle to self-destruct. Additionally, there was a staggering 40-second delay before the rocket responded to the self-destruct command.

The incident resulted in a cloud of dust and debris that caused damage to the launch pad. To fix this, SpaceX is making launchpad repairs and applying improvements to prevent further damage.

One such measure includes installing a flooding system at Starbase’s South Texas facility. The company has recently Tests on water-cooled steel plate to withstand intense fire from one of the rocket engines.

While these repairs and preparations continue, SpaceX is awaiting approval from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to continue Starship’s second test flight.

The FAA temporarily suspended the company’s authorization pending an ongoing investigation into the accident during its previous launch. Additionally, environmental groups have filed a lawsuit against the FAA, objecting to SpaceX’s authorization.

As NASA eagerly awaits the next test, the prospect for the Starship flight goes beyond SpaceX. Under a $2.89 billion contract, Musk’s company is committed About using the lunar version of Starship to transport humans to the Moon as part of NASA’s Artemis 3 mission, planned for the end of 2025.
