Starship | SN8 | High-Altitude Flight Test

  Ganger 9,344,731


5 måneder siden

On Wednesday, December 9, Starship serial number 8 (SN8) lifted off from our Cameron County launch pad and successfully ascended, transitioned propellant, and performed its landing flip maneuver with precise flap control to reach its landing point. Low pressure in the fuel header tank during the landing burn led to high touchdown velocity resulting in a hard (and exciting!) landing.
Thank you to all the locals supporting our efforts in Cameron County and beyond. Congratulations to the entire Starship and SpaceX teams on today’s test! Serial number 9 (SN9) is up next - Mars, here we come!

holy shit... less than half a year after the first flight, a prototype landed... amazing...

The funny thing is that SN8 landed on the same spot SN15 did, and both SN8 and SN15 lighted 2 engines on the flip.

I know some folks in Germany just came out with the first self contained “bionic eye”, if you will. It just went through some human trials and performed way better than anyone expected. Some scientist in Hong Kong also have some amazing technology coming out using nano light receptors meant to mimic the photoreceptors of the retina. These damn nano light receptors can also see in infrared at night.

Man will go mars no earlier than 2040. Even a small cybertruck takes years to be released to public, I can't imagine how long it will take starship to meet all the requirements. Probably decades. The news says we will see Man on mars very soon, just to keep us high expectations, but I think it's just marketing. I'm just being realistic.

i am curious about the landing ... the head of rocket can release a parachute even if it is a multiple stage rocket. it can greatly slow down the falling speed and adjust the posture of rocket. the rocket engine will ignite again right after the posture of rocket is stable. meanwhile, the parachute will also be released at this moment. is what i think not that easy to be implemented?
Marek Plerion
Marek Plerion 13 dager siden
@Elizabeth Christine Opening a parachute takes time. With space vehicles it's usually 2-staged - drogue chutes first, than mains. In order to give it enough time, the flip and landing burn would have to be made much higher, resulting in losing the benefit of additional drag when in horizontal position. So - more fuel needed. Plus the weight of the chutes themselves (wich would be massive - like, several hundreds kg). It's not that it wouldn't work - just wouldn't be as effective in reducing the cost while maximizing payload, which Starship is all about.

@Elizabeth Christine On mars there will be no parachute to slow the thing due to mars thin atmosphere.

@Elizabeth Christine A reusable solid rocket booster is a simple metal tube. Starship is immensely more heavy and complex. You don't see a 747 landing with a parachute, that would be stupid.

@TimePro hi, thanks for reply. according to my search. NASA has a reusable solid rocket booster using parachute to parachute into Atlantic. I do not know how much weight it is. Maybe, 150 ton does matter to SpaceX’s rocket. Maybe, the rocket of NASA is much lighter than 150 ton.

It's not really gliding, more like skydiving. Or as Buzz Lightyear would say, 'falling with style'. With that said, there are larger vehicles that can glide. An A380 is another half as long as this, and with a much larger wingspan. It also weighs at least twice as much, potentially up to five times as much. All things considered, it glides pretty well, certainly a lot better than this.
