SpaceX prototype starship SN4 passes key pressure test

Elon Musk tweeted Sunday night that SN4, the prototype next generation Starship from SpaceX, passed the cryogenic proof test, illustrating it can withstand the high pressures of cold fuel in space. The SN4 will now proceed with engine and short flight tests with its single Raptor rocket engine, as the company looks ahead to the triple Raptor SN5.

Good. Starship is back to making progress again. Hope to see it's first atmospheric hop in the next couple of months.
