On the same day that its Starbase general manager Kathy Leuders speculated that SpaceX might not move forward with the highly risky tower catch of the Starship rocket on the upcoming test flight, the firm has shared fresh footage of its catch tests. SpaceX has been clamping down its tower arms, called chopsticks, around a portion of a Super Heavy booster to evaluate the system's parameters for a real life test attempt. Its footage, shared moments back, shows one of the clamp arms repeatedly closing in on the rocket section while the other arm remains mostly static.

Staying true to his firm's rapid testing pace, SpaceX chief Elon Musk announced immediately after the test that his firm might attempt to catch the Super Heavy booster with the tower on Starship test flight 5. SpaceX rolled out a section of the Super Heavy booster to the pad earlier this week, and yesterday, it placed it at the launch pad again to simulate a tower catch.

SpaceX's goal to catch its rocket with the tower arms is the first time a rocket operator intends to do so. It aims to reduce the time taken to prepare the rocket for re flight, and it also removes the complication of trying to land the world's largest first stage rocket booster on legs. SpaceX's Falcon 9 uses either
