First orbital Starship launch scheduled for March

A SpaceX executive said Tuesday that the company remained on track to perform the first Starship orbital launch attempt next month. Speaking at the Space Mobility conference Tuesday, Gary Henry, senior adviser for national security space solutions at SpaceX, said both the Starship booster and the pad were in "good shape" after a static-fire test earlier this month. That test was "the last box to check" before an orbital launch, pending an FAA launch license that he expected the company to receive in the very near future. That would set the company up for an orbital launch attempt likely sometime in March, although the company has not provided a more specific schedule.
