1st orbital test flight of SpaceX's Starship Mars rocket pushed to March at the earliest

We'll have to wait a bit longer for the orbital debut of SpaceX's Starship Mars rocket.

SpaceX had been aiming to launch Starship on its first orbital test flight in January or February, provided that the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) wrapped up a programmatic environmental assessment (PEA) of the company's South Texas launch site by Dec. 31 as planned.

But that timeline no longer applies. The FAA announced on Tuesday (Dec. 28) that it has pushed the release of the final PEA back to Feb. 28, citing "the high volume of comments submitted on the draft PEA" and "discussions and consultation efforts with consulting parties."…..

Hard to keep up with the rate of progress - even without any launches…

That is a breathtaking photograph, ORAC! The tallest rocket ever assembled by humankind. I wish I could witness the first launch in person, but perhaps I'll be able to hear it from 800 miles away....

Well, its an amazing montage. The Starship launch facility has only just started pouring concrete for the foundations of that tower.
