“Gateway to Mars,” a huge neon sign appeared on the Starship launch pad

The next launch could take place in December

Visitors to the SpaceX Starbase spaceport in Boca Chica now have another place against which they can take beautiful pictures.

A photograph of a giant neon sign with the inscription “Gateway to Mars” was published a couple of hours ago by the head of the company, Elon Musk.

Last week, workers began installing massive white letters on a newly built wall near the Starship launch pad.

Some SpaceX fans have expressed regret over the recent construction of a large wall around parts of the launch complex. They see this as another step towards gradually closing SpaceX Starbase to the public.

The new sign appeared a couple of weeks after Starship’s second launch. This time we managed to reach the stage of stage separation, but a few moments later the launch vehicle exploded. The Starship spacecraft continued its flight , but also exploded approximately 8 minutes after it began.

Musk said the next Starship could be ready to fly in December, but SpaceX needs to get approval from the Federal Aviation Administration.
