First Hot Staging Ring Rolled Out for Testing | SpaceX Boca Chica

SpaceX rolled out a new hot staging ring to Massey’s test site to see if it can stand up to the crushing forces of launch. This ring, used to exhaust Starship’s Raptor engines during stage separation, can be easily spotted with its many cutouts around its perimeter. Also, work to prepare Booster 9 and the OLM for static fire testing continues at the orbital launch site. 🔗 NSF Store: https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/shop/ ⚡ Become a member of NASASpaceflight’s channel for exclusive discord access, fast turnaround clips, and other exclusive benefits.
