SpaceX's Starhopper rocket prototype for the next Mars-colonizing Starship vehicle, also known as BFR, achieved its highest flight ever on Aug. 27, 2019. The reusable hopping rocket flew from one pad to the other in just 57 seconds, with a targeted 150-meter ceiling at SpaceX's South Texas test site near Boca Chica Village.

This shows promising progress on very heavy payload handling and a new era of huge space aimed vehicles, we might one day call, starships.
