SpaceX halted the test launch of its Starship due to a stuck valve in the 1st stage booster, cutting the launch sequence at 40 seconds.

SpaceX chief Elon Musk live tweeted the launch as the fateful takeoff approached, only to announce that "a pressurant valve appears to be frozen, so unless it starts operating soon, no launch today." Not long after he said the firm was "offloading propellant, retrying in a few days... SkyDrive’s SD-05 will soon be available to the little guy, now that the company is accepting orders from private owner-operators. The move is still a bit uncommon in the eVTOL scene, with most manufacturers content to aim their wares at the expected rideshare and point-to-point carrier markets. Vance Street Capital LLC has announced an investment into Aero Group Holdings, LLC, which holds a number of aviation parts and manufacturing brands. Vance Street has now jumped in bed with a number of brands represented by Tempest, including half a dozen fairly well known names like Tempest, Alcor, Marve-Schebler, Precision Airmotive, Consolidated Fuel Systems, and Stratus Tool Technologies. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
