Elon Musk's company SpaceX is ready once again. The world's heaviest rocket 'Starship' has again reached the launch pad. Its last two flights have failed because the rocket had a technical glitch after launch and the mission controller had to blast it. Will it be successful in the third flight? Space agencies around the world want the answer to this question. If 'Starship' is successful in its launch, then in future it will become easier to send humans to the Moon and from there to Mars.

SpaceX has delivered the latest Starship rocket to the Starbase launch pad in Texas, USA. The company shared pictures related to it on social media platform 'X' and called it a milestone.

The vastness of the rocket can be gauged from the fact that it has two main elements. The first is Super Heavy Booster and the second is Starship Upper Stage which is 165 feet long. This will be SpaceX's third Starship test flight. The company hopes that the test flight will be flown in the next few weeks. According to Space.com, however, the test has not yet received approval from the US administration.

The report says that it is not known when SpaceX will get the license for the third flight. America's FAA is investigating what happened in the second Starship flight launched in December, which exploded after 8 minutes.

Starship was flown for the first time in April last year. The rocket was seen shaking at the time of launching and within a few minutes it exploded. Then it was said that Musk had failed in his objective. But his company is not ready to back down and is conducting tests one after the other.

What is Starship Rocket?

Starship is a reusable rocket. It mainly has two parts. The first is the passenger carry section, which will house the passengers, while the second is the super heavy rocket booster. Its length including the starship and booster is 394 feet (120 meters). Whereas the weight is 50 lakh kilograms. According to the information, the Starship rocket is capable of generating a thrust of 16 million pounds (70 meganewtons). This is almost twice as much as NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) rocket.
