Watch SpaceX Launch 4th Flight Of Starship Megarocket

SpaceX plans to launch its giant Starship rocket this morning (June 6), and you can watch the action live.

Starship, the biggest and most powerful rocket ever built, is scheduled to launch from SpaceX’s Starbase site in South Texas today, during a 100-minute window that opens at 8:50 a.m. EDT (1250 GMT; 7:50 a.m. local Texas time).

You can watch the event live here at Space.com, or via SpaceX‘s account on X, beginning about 30 minutes before liftoff.

Today’s launch will kick off the fourth test flight for the 400-foot-tall (122-meter-tall) Starship, which consists of a first-stage booster called Super Heavy and an upper-stage spacecraft known as Starship, or simply “Ship.”

The first three Starship missions launched from Starbase in April 2023, November 2023 and March of this year.

The debut flight ended just four minutes after liftoff because Starship’s two stages failed to separate as planned, and SpaceX ordered a controlled detonation.
