How You Can Watch SpaceX’s Starship Rocket Launch – Complete Guide

Let’s talk about where you watch SpaceX’s Starship Rocket Launch event before we proceed to the mission. The answer is simple; you can catch the event details on SpaceX’s YouTube channel. Around 45 minutes before liftoff, a live webcast of the flight test will begin. 

Ensure to read this statement by SpaceX regarding the launch event. 

“As is the case with all developmental testing, this schedule is dynamic and likely to change, so ensure to stay tuned to our social media channels for updates.”

Starship, SpaceX’s vehicle, is now on a launch pad at the organization’s facilities on the southern Texas coast. The business plans to launch at 8 a.m. CT (9 a.m. ET) on Monday, but it can take off at any time between 8 a.m. CT (9 a.m. ET) and 9:30 a.m. CT (10:30 a.m. ET).

So, since it is not a mere product launch, this is serious business. The schedule might alter; everything is not certain.

What is Mr.Musk Saying?

Twitter is Elon Musk’s favorite place, and in a Twitter “Spaces” event organized for his subscribers Sunday evening, he said

“I guess I’d like to just set expectations low. If we get far enough away from the launch pad before something goes wrong, then I think I would consider that to be a success. Just don’t blow up the pad.”

Further, he stated-

“There’s a good chance that it gets postponed since we’re going to be pretty careful about this launch.”

Locals have been known to line the beaches around South Padre Island to observe tests, and this launch is guaranteed to bring a crowd. On the other hand, SpaceX has frequently cautioned residents in the region to avoid the “Keepout Zone” — the areas directly circumferencing the launch site that has been deemed too close to the rocket to be safe during liftoff.

Introduction to the Mission

The Starship, the most robust rocket ever built, is just hours away from making its inaugural orbital trip. The mission should last about 90 minutes. If all goes as planned, the upper-stage Starship spaceship will detach from the Super Heavy rocket several minutes into the voyage. 

The launcher will then crash land off the coast of Hawaii while the Starship attempts to enter orbit. Again, assuming the voyage goes as planned, the Starship will crash land in the Gulf of Mexico after its orbital journey.
