WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said on Tuesday it had completed the safety review of the SpaceX Starship-Super Heavy license.

The FAA is continuing to work on an environmental review and is consulting with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) on an updated Biological Assessment under the Endangered Species Act.

The FAA and the USFWS must complete this consultation before the environmental review portion of the license evaluation is completed.
