SpaceX Starhopper Counting Down for Third Attempt at 150-Meter Hop

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.
