The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), in collaboration with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, recently finalized an environmental review for SpaceX's second orbital test of the Starship spacecraft.
On November 14, the FAA released an operational planning advisory, highlighting three potential launch dates for the Starship: November 17, November 18, and November 19.


In addition to the Starship launch, SpaceX has also received authorization to conduct two Starlink satellite missions, from SLC-40, Cape Canaveral SFS, United States and SLC-4E, Vandenberg SFB, United States on Friday the 17th. This scheduling could result in up to three SpaceX flights occurring on a single day.

Furthermore, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has completed its Biological Reevaluation, a critical step in the overall approval process. SpaceX now awaits an amended license, which is the final requirement needed to proceed with these planned launches.
