Starship | SN10 | High-Altitude Flight Test

3. mars. 2021
8 498 411 Ganger

On Wednesday, March 3, Starship serial number (SN10) successfully completed SpaceX’s third high-altitude flight test of a Starship prototype from our site in Cameron County, Texas.
Similar to the high-altitude flight tests of Starship SN8 and SN9, SN10 was powered through ascent by three Raptor engines, each shutting down in sequence prior to the vehicle reaching apogee - approximately 10 km in altitude. SN10 performed a propellant transition to the internal header tanks, which hold landing propellant, before reorienting itself for reentry and a controlled aerodynamic descent.

The Starship prototype descended under active aerodynamic control, accomplished by independent movement of two forward and two aft flaps on the vehicle. All four flaps were actuated by an onboard flight computer to control Starship’s attitude during flight and enabled a precise landing at the intended location. SN10’s Raptor engines reignited as the vehicle performed the landing flip maneuver immediately before successfully touching down on the landing pad!
As if the flight test was not exciting enough, SN10 experienced a rapid unscheduled disassembly shortly after landing. These test flights are all about improving our understanding and development of a fully reusable transportation system designed to carry both crew and cargo on long-duration interplanetary flights, and help humanity return to the Moon, and travel to Mars and beyond.

  • Esse estagio da Starship só serão usados os motores na Terra nas manobras de pouso, já na Lua na decolagem de retorno não exigirá tanto dos motores devido menor gravidade, será que estou mais ou menos certo? parabéns a quem tiver coragem de fazer um passeio nessa monstruosa maquina, mais complexa do que o Onibus Espacial, O Elon Musk é um homem de muita FÉ.

  • ........High altitude?....Are you joking?....there are geese that fly higher than I0k.....Not to mention they also fly faster.....Did I just completely misunderstand or did it take 4 minutes to reach that altitude? Wow, with those specs this SpaceX Rocket will allow us to colonize the Rocky Mountains within the next ten to twenty years. Damn, this cutting edge technology never fails to amaze me.....NOT.

    • They purposely go slower to avoid super-sonic speeds and to lower vehicle stress. The first orbital flight will go like a falcon 9.

  • To watch this...now I am fully realized....indeed we are living in the primitives' era technology of transportation..., I am not too obsessed with the USS Enterprise of Startrek TV's movie in 1970 ....but thought they were still more advanced than this one even though Starship USS Enterprise just fiction movies, but I would be pleased to choose to ride with Mr. Spock rather than Mr. Elon Musk...as a comparison; the Stealth F-117 Nighthawk - Lockheed-Martin is more makes sense to defeat the gravity and return to the earth as usual with the horizontal position for what's it is being spacecraft and thus .....not in the vertical ways to landing...who can guarantee in the even the propulsion engine does not work as expected? the answer is clear....; " Free Fall " as a gun shoot bullet aimed to the sky...the concept of landing with vertical ways has not given the good option for the craft to gliding in case of emergency to saves the souls onboard. it is fully joking for a multi-million project...Elon Musk is too naif to spend his abundant money on this...if I were him...I would rather dump my money to build a free school and teach people how to become a Billionaire like him...

  • 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.

The question is why are you defending something that you can't prove, while all claims against what your trying to cling to have tons of facts , scientific, to back them up. My proof is right there , the cgi sequence at the end and the so called landing, i know its hard. We both have our own truths and i respect that, its just that's this is soo in our faces , its impossible not to see. And question its nature

    • @Eduardo Rodriguez Vazquez fair enough. After a study of the STS program, it would be a nightmare to fly on a rocket. As a pilot myself, it is fascinating science. But way too risky. I don’t ever see the risk factor going away. Man it too flawed. Too much can go wrong in manned space flight. Too many extremes. I don’t know if it is ethical watching people kill themselves trying to go to Mars.... like the Mars one project?

  • When landing, the ignition is too late to correct. It needs to be 1-2 seconds earlier.The liquid fuel bunker should be divided into many small bunkers. Otherwise, if the whole bunker is turned vertically to horizontal, and then to vertical, the kinetic energy of the liquid itself can heat itself, causing expansion and deflagration

  • Need to add a parachute placed on top of the missile, when it falls straight. Need to improve the landing cooling system with the missile fixation axle after landing, I mean upgrading the yard system so that under it there is a shaft that can move and attach itself. as a landing gear. Maybe so, try using a flying parachute that cuts off when the Rocket is falling in mid-air. hm ... i think this idea can be sold, maybe n't 😄

    • @Huỳnh Đức Lê Please for the love of god stop calling it a missile!

      It’s grantIt’s grant18 dager siden
    • @Huỳnh Đức Lê Yes, but they've already demonstrated they can land it without, and a parachute would also increase turnaround time for reuse. No need for one if propulsive landing can already yield the requested results.

      alexnalexn19 dager siden
    • @alexn I know it's heavy, I mean the parachute is only used for a short time and then cut off when the missile is horizontal, except that the missile is placed at the top of the missile retained at the upright position. The parachute flew horizontally should be two moderate instead of one large enough to bear the load since it would be cut off to enter the final stage anyway. Although mainly used to reduce the force and help more stability, the possibility of wind, the weather will adversely affect the parachute and affect the missile but this problem can be improved. which is that you can use three parachutes to change your posture from horizontal to straight if you cut the parachute from the tail of the Rocket.
