The FAA's Kelvin Coleman has stated that SpaceX will need to carry out a mishap investigation for the 3rd full stack Starship launch that occurred on March 14th

Each answer resolves NO if by that date there are no reports of the mishap investigation having been closed by the FAA

Once there are reports that the mishap investigation has been closed, all remaining answers resolve YES

If for some reason a mishap report does not end up being required, all remaining answers resolve N/A (previously resolved answers will not be reresolved)

Before July 1st can resolve as No. 😁

“Before June 15” can resolve as NO. 😁

sold Ṁ1 Before May 22nd YES

apparently the investigation does not necessarily have to be completed before the next flight:

@dp9000 @Nat
Perhaps raises the issue of if we will hear about when the mishap investigation is actually closed? If there isn't much consequence to it, will it be seen as news worth reporting? Is there a way of looking up status?

Huh, well that's interesting news

@ChristopherRandles I'd say it's still likely it will be reported on when it happens but yeah that is a good thought. I'm just about to go to bed but will try to have a think/look in the morning

bought Ṁ193 Before June 1st NO

Update https://x.com/BCCarCounters/status/1795495860651835778
indicates "Safety investigation deems OFT-3 did not involve public safety issues."

and this notified to SpaceX on 24 May 2024.

So presumably SpaceX have been able to start application for licence since then but yet granted.

.

I am tending to assume that investigation reached a point where they just needed more data from a future flight so mishap investigation not likely to be closed until some time after next flight. However that is just speculation and completely different reasons might be possible or more likely.

For mods: will be out of service for a week so feel free to resolve in my absence
