SN11 is the latest Starship rocket prototype in preparation for testing SN11 follows on from SN8, SN9 and SN10 all of which have completed flights as SpaceX seeks to create the perfect rocket to transport humans to Mars. SpaceX was scheduled to fly the SN11 this weekend, but the company has been plagued with delays during all of its Starship tests.
A static fire test sees all engines on while the rocket remains stationary on the ground
This is usually a good indicator that a rocket should fly imminently because it shows engineers that the machine is working perfectly..
However, Cameron County – where is SpaceX's base in Boca Chica – ordered scheduled road closures in the area for today, 24 mars.
When the SN11 can finally take off, it will probably follow the same trajectory as its predecessors
Previous SN vessels have all sailed at an altitude of 10 kilometers before descending to land in the same place
SN10 landed safely, but it exploded a few minutes later due to a hard landing which ruptured a methane tank and caused an explosion.
This time, however, SpaceX hopes to make a successful landing and not have another exploded rocket on its hands.

M. Musk wrote on Twitter: “Creation of the city of Starbase, Texas From there to March, and therefore the stars”
