While answering questions from his fans on Twitter, SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed the current plan for a complete presentation of Starship.

Musk noted that his company's latest statement on reusing the Mars test of its raptor rocket engines was " overall success "despite an abortion designed to test the external limit of engine tolerance with fuel mixing ratio.
According to Musk, the official Starship presentation would take place "a few weeks after the jumper floats." The Hopper test, also known as StarHopper, involves the engine's intervention without launch.
Hopper performed a tethered hop test back in April 2019. The unhardened test is very close to Rea equality following the recent test that addressed a key issue with Raptor's vibration at a particular operating frequency.
SpaceX is supposed to move from using scaled-down prototypes designed for low-level testing to a full-scale rocket building after completion of the jumper test. We will hear all about it on the highly anticipated Starship presentation in the coming weeks.
