SpaceX hopped their StarShip prototype vehicle known as StarHopper today with serial number 6 Raptor Engine. The vehicle flew about 150 meters (492 feet) up translated over to the landing pad about 100 meters away (328 feet).
This was a very important milestone for the StarShip / StarHopper prototype, but was also very high risk. Luckily everything went well and it was amazing!
