The launch date coincides with worldwide celebrations of the sci-fi epic Stars Wars as the date May 4 sounds like a play on the Star Wars catchphrase, “may the force be with you”.
However, keep in mind SpaceX has pulled the plug on Starship at the very last minute multiple times before and for many different reasons.
Should the launch be delayed or scrubbed due to poor weather or technical problems, a backup window is in place.
Cameron County officials have pencilled in more road closures on Wednesday from 6pm to 2am BST (12pm to 8pm BST).
SpaceX fans have been sharing their excitement for the launch on social media, keeping their fingers crossed all goes according to plan today.
