Today SpaceX launched and landed their prototype Starship spaceship called “Starhopper”.

Starhopper In Flight

Taking off on a single Raptor engine it flew around 150 metres into the air, flew across to the nearby landing pad and then landed all without a hitch.

Starhopper Landing

During the flight you could see mach diamonds coming from the rocket engine on the background of a beautiful blue sky. In fact, they almost made launching and landing what looks basically like a water tower “too easy”.

You can watch the full test below from SpaceX’s YouTube channel.

Big congratulations to SpaceX on this huge milestone and we can’t wait to see more, higher tests in the coming months. It’s also expected that next year we’ll get to see Starship Orbital test flights too!
