SpaceX’s next Starship flight test may feature a new milestone: catching the Super Heavy booster with the “Mechazilla” launch tower. A video posted on X (formerly Twitter) on July 4 highlights milestones from the fourth flight test and ends with an animation showing the 400-foot-tall booster landing on the tower. This suggests SpaceX aims to catch the booster for efficient refurbishment and relaunch. Elon Musk indicated this attempt might occur in late July. The company has previously shared animations of the “chopstick” arms catching the booster at their South Texas site.
