SpaceX's Starship will not take off in August either.

The much-anticipated first orbital test flight of SpaceX's Starship vehicle will not take place this month due to a lack of launch clearance.

"A successful orbital flight is probably 1 to 12 months away."

SpaceX is aiming for a six-month window beginning September 1 for the highly anticipated mission.

Starship is made up of a massive first-stage booster called Super Heavy and a 165-foot-tall (50-meter) upper-stage spacecraft called Starship.

Booster 7 is just one of its 33 engines, and Ship 24 fired up two of its six Raptors, despite a failed attempt in July.
