Tuesday’s attempt is scheduled for 5:00 p.m. ET. The launch will be streamed live online by several different sources.
Elon Musk believes the Monday abort was caused by simple wiring issues in the igniters. As of this morning, Raptor’s igniters appear to have passed inspection and fixes. Starhopper is now scheduled for its 150 meter (500 ft) hop test no earlier than 5pm EDT (21:00 UTC), August 27th.
Currently, launch appears to be one or two hours later than the 5pm time.
Today’s looking good for a second 150 meter hop attempt. Here’s a nitrogen control thruster test with sunk audio from last night.
I’ve spent weeks here documenting #Starhopper’s static fire, the 20m hop and now this. Please consider supporting my work.https://t.co/4SoNYeiBdr pic.twitter.com/9wJsustmoB

I am now getting paid every month more than $18k by doing an easy j0b 0nline from home. I have earned and received $19420 last month from this j0b and i was doing this only in my part time for 2 to 3 hours a day 0nline. This 0nline j0b is just amazing and regular earning from this are much better than other regular office j0bs. Every person on this earth can get this home based j0b and start making extra cash 0nline by follow instructions on this website………..works95.com
