US FAA ends investigation of Starships 2nd test flight mishap

San Francisco: The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said it has closed the investigation of SpaceX's Starship Super Heavy Orbital Test Flight 2 (OTF-2) launch mishap that occurred in November last year.

The regulator in a statement on Monday said that it "accepts the root causes and 17 corrective actions" identified by SpaceX.

However, “the closure of the investigation does not signal an immediate authorisation of the next Starship launch,” the regulator said.

SpaceX’s second orbital flight test launched to space on November 18, 2023.
