SpaceX’s Starship is a super-heavy-lift rocket and spacecraft, and if successful, would be the most powerful rocket system ever launched (Mashable, NASASpaceflight.com, BBC). SpaceX had been preparing for Starship’s first orbital launch test to occur in late 2022, but static fire tests have yet to ignite all 33 Raptor engines (CNET, NASASpaceflight.com). The test flight is now projected for March 2023 (Engadget, Space). 

This question will be resolved based on open-source media reporting. The reports must indicate that Starship reached orbit. If Starship fails to reach orbit before 1 April 2023, this question will resolve “No”.
