SCRUBBED!!!!! Next attempt: 8/27 at 4:00 PM (ish) central (21:00 ish UTC?
SpaceX is targeting a T-0 time of around 5:00 p.m. central (22:00 UTC) the test is subject to change of time OR date. Although I currently plan on streaming at 12:30 local, it is subject to change.
SpaceX plans to try and hop their StarShip prototype vehicle known as StarHopper today with serial number 6 Raptor Engine. The vehicle will hopefully fly to about 150 meters (492 feet) up will likely translate over to the landing pad about 100 meters away (328 feet).
This is a very important milestone for the StarShip / StarHopper prototype, but it's also very high risk. Hopefully everything goes well so the program can continue at this rapid pace.
