  • The fourth SpaceX Starship Integrated Flight Test IFT 4 will take off on June 5th, 2024. This mission is essential in developing the Starship, a fully reusable launch vehicle that will revolutionize space travel.

    The Starship rocket combines the Ship’s upper stage and the Super Heavy Booster (SHB). After 7 minutes of the launch, the SHB will splash down in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Another ambitious mission of SpaceX, the ESA EarthCARE took off on May 28.




  • SpaceX Starship Integrated Flight Test IFT 4: Building on Previous Success

    The IFT-4 mission previously continued the successful Starship Flight 3 in March. We saw the starship prototype, which reached nearly 6.2 miles before returning.

    But as always, SpaceX is trying to take things to the next level and pushing the boundaries further this time.

    The mission will mainly focus on simulating the landing of the super-heavy booster.

    The goal for IFT-4 is to land its booster, which is designed as a launch tower catch mechanism.




  • This mission will also test The Starship’s upper stage, and SpaceX will learn more about the heat generated during re-entry.

    This data will make sure the next mission is better and more effective.

    What to Expect on Launch Day?

    The launch date for IFT-4 mission is currently set for June 5th, 2024, at the launch time of 7:00 AM CDT (8:00 AM EDT, 12:00 UTC).




  • SpaceX will probably give us live footage of the launch and landing and stream the mission on its social media X.

    The launch date is approaching, and more mission details will be available on their official site.

    This is an exciting time for space exploration, and if SpaceX Starship Integrated Flight Test IFT 4 is successful, it will be a significant turning point for the future of space travel.
