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