SpaceX Starship License: Finalizing by December 31

SpaceX’s Starship License permit would be finalized before 2021 ends and it would be a buzzer-beater that would have its answer by December 31. It currently sits at a 50-50 situation as it could either be turned down or approved by the FAA, and it would be due to the environmental reasons of the state.

SpaceX Starship License

SpaceX’s venture for the Starship awaits the license of the company from the regulatory bodies, focusing more on its environmental assessment and overall impact on the ecosystem that it would be affecting. There were a lot of mixed feelings with regards to the perception and opinion of the public in the approval of the Starship license in the past months.

That being said, SpaceX has not let the time go to waste as the company has tested out different aspects of the Starship mission by focusing more on testing the Mechazilla’s chopstick catching arms and more. The company had made it so that when it got its licenses, it would immediately be focusing on the tests it needed to do so that the spacecraft would be ready.

It is known that SpaceX is putting a lot on the line for its mission to Mars, especially as it put everything it has on the stainless steel spacecraft of Starship and Super Heavy Booster rocket combined. The spacecraft would also be a game-changer, especially as it would be one of the first rockets that can bring humans to Mars, as well as cargo.
