June 6th, 2024: SpaceX has performed their fourth integrated flight test of the Starship rocket from their Starbase facility in Texas. This time, the Super Heavy booster and the upper-stage both successfully made it back to Earth in one piece for a soft splashdown in the Gulf of Mexico and Indian Ocean, respectively, marking a first for these integrated flight tests and an important milestone for future tests. After four launches in just a little over a year, the SpaceX team is not slowing down as they have their sights set on the Artemis 3 launch in September 2026. Integrated flight test #5 is set to launch as early as July. Congrats to the SpaceX team!
