For the latest static fire test, the Starship spacecraft fired all six of its Raptor rockets while held in place on the ground.
It’s not the first static fire test for Starship, but previous SN20 tests have only fired two rockets at a time while previous prototypes have fired three.
The reusable Starship is set to become SpaceX’s primary vehicle, powering all of its launches in the not-too-distant future.
Starship HLS is the lunar lander variant of the SpaceX Starship.
NASA chose SpaceX to build the Human Landing System for Artemis, which will pick up astronauts from the Orion capsule in orbit and ferry them to the lunar surface.
The Starship system — which includes a Super Heavy booster along with the spacecraft — also needs to undergo orbital launch tests before being used.
