SpaceX fires up Starship and Super Heavy Booster 7 ahead of test flight

The static fire tests, which took place Tuesday, involved one of Super Heavy's 33 Raptor engines and two of Starship 24's six Raptors.

Starship upper-stage prototypes have launched before, on test flights that reached a maximum altitude of 10 kilometers or so. Those jaunts involved vehicles with three engines, half of what the final Starship spacecraft will sport.
