The company's founder and chief engineer, Elon Musk, has said SpaceX will attempt to fly Starship to an altitude of 15km to demonstrate the performance of three Raptor engines over the course of several minutes. The company's previous flights to about 150 meters, in August and September, used a single Raptor engine.
This higher flight profile will take Starship above nearly 90 percent of Earth's atmosphere

The author is a dumbass.

90% of earth's atmosphere is 90km, not 15. Space is at 100 km altitude.
