The first launch of SpaceX Starship was halted on Monday 17 April 2023 after a pressurization issue arose in the first stage.

SpaceX decided to continue with the preparation – as a “wet dress” down to the T-0:10 mark so as to allow its team to exercise its procedures. The next launch attempt will be Thursday 19 April 2023 according to SpaceX.
