SpaceX is preparing for a new test flight of its giant rocket system, Starship, and according to CEO Elon Musk, the chances of the next flight's success have significantly improved thanks to a major overhaul of the system.
Musk revealed that SpaceX has made over 1,000 changes to the design of Starship following its first test launch in April, which failed to reach orbit.
SpaceX has revamped the operational processes of the rocket system, increasing its chances of success on the second test launch, said Musk.
"So I think the probability of the next flight working—or getting to orbit—is much higher than the last one," Musk stated. "Maybe it's like 60%; it depends on how well we do at stage separation," he added.
