The Starship Hopper Test vehicle took a giant leap to using the Raptor engine showing that this new engine can provide the thrust and control needed to make flights and veritcal landings. However it is likely the last flight of this single engine vehicle since SpaceX plans to move on to the larger Starship Prototypes with multiple engines.
The test didn't go off without a hitch but in the end there were celebrations from all involved and looking forward to bigger things.

Thanks to Everyday Astronaut / Tim Dodd for his excellent test footage

Also thanks to Steve Harris who's analysis convinced me I needed to take a closer look at the landing engine exhaust.
