Elon Musk spoke about the readiness of the Starship prototype for the fourth flight

Elon Musk commented on the message of the SpaceX company on the X social network regarding the recent rehearsal of the fourth launch of the super-heavy transport system Starship.

In the message the company says that engineers have completed the rehearsal of the fourth launch and fully refueled the system. The ship is ready for flight.

According to Musk, the main task of SpaceX – to ensure that the ship reaches the point of maximum heating upon entering the atmosphere. The thermal shield will be responsible for this.

He also noted that the fourth flight will take place in about two weeks.

«A highly reliable, lightweight and reusable thermal shield is the most important technical task remaining before Starship. It is worth noting that no one has ever managed to create a completely reusable heat shield. “The Space Shuttle required more than six months of repairs,” Musk said, commenting on SpaceX's post.
