Space X SN8 static fire test successful

I donít if anyone saw the static fire of SN8, but for a moment there I thought the whole launch vehicle blew up on the test stand, simply spectacular enormous amount of kinetic energy in a split second , but it went off perfectly
3 raptor engines fired momentarily with a total thrust of nearly 900,000 pounds using liquid oxygen and methane as propellant
Next exciting event for Starship will be the 15km flight , launch date to be confirmed
Space X achieving milestones month after month, an incredible progressive space company !!
