SpaceX's upcoming Starship has passed a crucial refueling test, paving the way for a highly anticipated third launch attempt of the world's largest rocket.

The gleaming stainless-steel Starship rocket and its super-heavy booster, both 400 feet (122 meters) tall, were filled with more than 10 million pounds of liquid methane and liquid oxygen fuel during the final launch rehearsal, which took place at SpaceX's Starbase facility near From Boca Chica Beach in South Texas.
