FAA delays environmental  Starship to June 13

review of SpaceX's

The U.S. (FAA) has delayed

 the completion of its environmental review of SpaceX's Starship program by another two weeks, to June 13.

That review, known as a

 programmatic environmental assessment (PEA), is gauging the environmental impacts of SpaceX's Starbase

The FAA released a draft

 PEA last September, saying at the time that the final report would likely be done by the end of the year.

But the agency has repeatedly

pushed the deadline back, saying it needs more time to consult with other government departments

Starship consists of a

 huge first-stage booster called Super Heavy and a 165-foot-tall (50 meters) upper-stage spacecraft

Both of these

elements are designed to be fully and rapidly reusable.
