Spacex is planning to launch and test its second Starship designated “SN1” today 26 March 2021.

The Spacecraft will launch from Boca Chica Texas and reach an altitude of 10km. It will then return to the launch facility using its fins and thrusters in a controlled free fall before performing a flip manoeuvre and landing upright if all goes well.
