SpaceX will attempt to launch its latest Starship prototype from the company’s Starbase test site in South Texas Wednesday (May 5) with a liftoff targeted for 6:20 p.m. EDT (2220 GMT). 

Starship SN15 (« Serial No. 15 »), SpaceX’s newest vehicle, could fly on a high-altitude test from the company’s facility near Boca Chica Village sometime between 1 p.m. and 9 p.m. EDT (1700-0100 GMT) on Wednesday, according to a road closure alert by officials with Cameron County, which includes the test site. Wednesday is a backup day for SpaceX, which originally had road closures from the country for May 4. 

The Federal Aviation Administration had issued all-day flight restriction notices for pilots in the area that through Friday (May 7) to give SpaceX clear skies for any launch attempt. By midday, the May 4 flight restriction had been lifted.
