In this video, we have looked at the reasons of delay in the first orbital launch date of Starship. The FAA announced on March 25 that it had delayed the expected completion of the final Environmental Assessment Program (PEA) of the Starship/Super Heavy orbital launch from Boca Chica, Texas by another month. The assessment which was originally scheduled to be completed on March 28, is now scheduled to be released on April 29.
This is the third delay in completing the assessment, which was originally scheduled to be released in late December 2021. The FAA first postponed the release to February 28 and then March 28, citing ongoing work to complete the assessment and in coordination with other government agencies.
One reason could be the shift in resources. One possible factor in this is a change in SpaceX’s resources. Musk tweeted on March 5 that SpaceX had “reprioritized” its cybersecurity resources to deal with Starlink signal interference in Ukraine. “Will cause slight delays in Starship & Starlink V2,” he wrote, without elaborating.
