Testing History
Ambient Temperature N2 Pressure TestPass
Cryogenic Liquid N2 Pressure TestFailure (Cause Possible Test Misconfiguration[1])

Starship Serial Number 3 was a Starship based on SN2. SN3 was the first to contain landing legs[2] and an upgraded thrust puck. It had completed ambieant nitrogen testing, however a bad valve caused the Cryogenic LN2 test to be aborted. They redid the test, however it was destroyed during testing on April 3rd, 2020.

After the incident, Elon stated that it may be a result of a test configuration error.

SN3 will be followed by SN4.
