SpaceX's Starship rocket is on track for a March test flight attempt, according to fresh statements from the firm's chief Elon Musk. The second week of February saw renewed activities at the company's test facilities in Boca Chica, Texas, as SpaceX shipped its latest rocket booster to the launch pad. These rockets will make it to the third test flight, called the Starship Integrated Test Flight (IFT-3), and according to Musk, the rocket should be ready for yet another launch in at least three weeks.
Elon Musk Shares Fresh Details For Starship Launch As SpaceX Continues Launch Site Testing
Footage shared by local media and from SpaceX's official social media channels shows that the latest Starship Super Heavy rocket booster and second stage ship are on the launch pad for pre launch activities. So far, after it stacked the second stage on the booster yesterday, SpaceX has removed the rockets and is now working on the top of the booster close to its stage separation ring. This ring is a new addition to Starship's design, and it followed the first test flight in April last year when the rocket's first and second stages failed to successfully separate and led to an in flight explosion.

While initial speculation after the second Starship test flight late last year had hoped that SpaceX might conduct the next test soon, 2024 has seen few details about Boca Chica testing activities. Among the few things that are confirmed now are the facts that SpaceX will test in space propellant transfer later this year, and that a third test flight, along with subsequent ones, is also on the cards.
A rapid cadence of test flights is the backbone of the Starship program since it enables SpaceX to collect a treasure trove of data to fine tune its rockets and upgrade them for future missions.
Now, after the brief lull on the Starship front, SpaceX chief Elon Musk is back on X with a fresh timeline for the third Starship test flight. This test was initially expected to take place in February, but the FAA's revelation that SpaceX is yet to submit documents related to the second test flight last week hinted that perhaps IFT-3 would take longer than initially expected.
Musk's latest comments, made in response to the rapper Ye asking him when the next test flight would take place, promise that it should take place "in about 3 weeks" - effectively confirming that February will not be the month that Starship attempts to fly to the heavens for the third time.

Hitman's Elusive Targets started as a series of one-off assassinations, baddies who would appear in the live service game for a few days and offer one chance to kill them (don't blow it!) before vanishing.

Four years since he last appeared, a target played by famous dier Sean Bean will return in March. Kill him, kill him while you can. It's what he would want. It's how he pays his rent.
