Tech billionaire, Elon Musk has disclosed that plans are underway for SpaceX to launch in March.
Musk, SpaceX’s billionaire CEO, stated in a tweet on Saturday that the company’s Starship rocket system might be launched in March.
“If remaining tests go well, we will attempt a Starship launch next month,” Musk tweeted in response to a Starship-related tweet from a user.
Musk stated in January that there was a “real shot” of launching Starship in late February and that a launch attempt in March appeared quite feasible.
Since last year, SpaceX has been attempting to launch its massive Starship into orbit for the first time, a critical demonstration trip in its quest to send NASA astronauts to the moon.
Elon Musk’s SpaceX is one of the companies to which NASA awarded a contract worth over $100 million to monitor Earth.
The multimillion-dollar contract is for payload processing, which involves preparing a spacecraft to fly on top of a rocket ahead of a flight to space.
The launch would be carried out of Cape Canaveral, Florida, or Vandenberg Space Force Base in California and the contract could run for more than 10 years through February of 2033, NASA said.
