STATIC FIRE 2 for Ship 29. This time it does indeed look like the in-space firing test with a single Raptor. That may conclude Static Fire testing for the Ship ahead of IFT-4.

Getting ready for Flight 4 of Starship!

Goal of this mission is for Starship to get through max reentry heating with all systems functioning.

And a road closure that is likely Ship 29's return to the production site for final pre-flight work. Booster 11's time to shine next.

Time-Lapse of the single engine Static Fire Test on Ship 29, meant to simulate in-orbit relight of the Raptor Engine. This may conclude S29's test campaign ahead of IFT-4.

Ship 29 has returned to the production site for pre-flight work. Next time it'll be at the launch site it'll hopefully be for full stack testing with Booster 11.

B11 has to undergo its own Static Fire campaign next.

After completing its Static Fire Testing campaign, Starship S29 was rolled back to the High Bay. Now all eyes turn to the OLM and Booster 11, for the next steps ahead of IFT-4.
