The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has issued the launch license to SpaceX for the Starship orbital flight test, which could now take place as soon as Monday.
The long-awaited launch license came at the very end of business on Friday.
“After a comprehensive license evaluation process, the FAA determined SpaceX met all safety, environmental, policy, payload, airspace integration and financial responsibility requirements,” the administration said in a statement.
This was the final regulatory hurdle facing SpaceX. Now, the company is authorized to conduct the orbital flight test as soon as its ready.
