SpaceX stacks Starship SN8 prototype ahead of epic test flight

SpaceX’s latest Starship prototype has been stacked in preparation for an ambitious test flight that will take the vehicle far higher than any of its predecessors have gone.

SpaceX personnel attached Starship SN8’s (“Serial No. 8”) nose cone yesterday (Oct. 22) at the company’s South Texas site, near the Gulf Coast village of Boca Chica. The vehicle is now in its flight configuration, poised for an uncrewed hop to a planned altitude of about 9 miles (15 kilometers).
