Starship's third-ever test flight is officially on for Thursday morning (March 14). The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced today (March 13) that it has awarded a launch license for the mission.

"The FAA determined SpaceX met all safety, environmental, policy and financial responsibility requirements," the agency wrote in a post on X this afternoon.

The launch could take place anytime during a 110-minute window that opens at 7 a.m. CT (8 a.m. ET) Thursday, according to an email from SpaceX sent Wednesday afternoon. A live stream of the event will begin on the company's website about 30 minutes before takeoff.

This test flight comes after two attempts to get the massive Starship vehicle to orbital speeds in 2023 ended in explosions, with the spacecraft and booster erupting into flames before reaching their intended landing sites.
