Elon Musk posts first glimpse of SpaceX’s finished Starship test vehicle


Elon Musk just gave us a look at the first test version of SpaceX’s Starship.

Formerly known as the BFR, Musk announced on Thursday that the spaceflight company’s test version of the Starship, dubbed the “hopper,” has just finished being assembled at SpaceX’s launch site in Boca Chica Village, Texas.

This particular Starship will be used for suborbital vertical take-off tests, which will be similar to ones it completed for the Falcon 9 back in 2013.
