Full Replay: Starship SN15 sticks landing during flight test

3,9 milj. näkymät989

    SpaceX is performing a test flight of Starship SN15. The prototype will aim to be the first Starship vehicle to softly land during a high altitude flight test. Like the previous Starship prototypes, SN15 is expected to fly to approximately 10 kilometers.

      Starship Landing All planes on earth land horizontally on TRIPODS, regardless of length of fuselage or weight from super light piper cubs to jumbo jets to military carrier planes that transport heavy battle tanks to HARRIER jets and F35 fighter planes that do vertical take off and landing. Why do planes land HORIZONTALLY on TRIPODS? It's the safest regardless of how smooth or bumpy the landing may be. AND, consider how tall the Starship is, AND how top heavy with its payload of 100 metric tons - where is the center of gravity? A little tilt, like the lunar lander of Apollo 15 in 1971 - the Starship could topple down. WHAT GUARANTEE have you people that the landing site will be truly flat and sturdy and strong enough to support the FULL WEIGHT of Starship PLUS PAYLOAD. AND YOU'LL BE LANDING A THOUSAND STARSHIPS ON MARS VERTICALLY?!? HOW SURE ARE YOU THAT EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM WON'T TILT. SOFT SOIL OR BLOWING WIND ON A SHIP WITH A LITTLE TILT COULD FALL DOWN.

      Kudos to SN-15 for sticking the landing. That is a very good, sucessful test. Now do it a hundred more times with the same rocket without crashing, and you might have a winner. But that fire after landing is not a good sign. Oh, and it might be nice to reach the same altitude as standard airliners, and do it roughly a million times a year.

      Mayor’s Congratulatory Poster Niagara Mayor Jim Diodati’s poster honoring Falun Dafa Day After the Niagara Falls City Council voted on April 20 to approve the flag ceremony, Mayor Jim Diodati honored it with a poster. He also posted the image online, inviting more people to visit the city. Practitioner Zhang Pixing (left) coordinated the flag ceremony. Niagara Falls is a world-renowned tourist destination, boasting tens of millions of visitors every year. Zhang Pixing, a Falun Dafa practitioner who coordinated the flag ceremony, said excitedly, “We are glad to be here to share the beauty of Falun Dafa so that more people can benefit from the practice. This includes people worldwide, including China, the birthplace of Falun Dafa.” Over the next two weeks, more cities will have similar celebrations, either with flag ceremonies or bright lights at landmark buildings. “During this difficult time of the pandemic, we sincerely hope the health and spiritual benefits of Falun Dafa could benefit people of all backgrounds,” he said. Two young practitioners at the flag ceremony More practitioners at the flag ceremony Although the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began to persecute Falun Dafa in 1999, Zhang said the principles of the practice, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, have guided practitioners through the years and given them strength. “Today, we are happy to see many young practitioners. Also, practitioners from diverse backgrounds have joined the activity today,” he said. “It shows that the rain and storm of the past 22 years have in fact built up perseverance among practitioners, allowing the practice to flourish in the younger generation worldwide.”

      this is outrages!! not a single video shows the bellyflop maneuver, ya all cutting it out. What the hell?

      1. Myers

        Tim's cameras did manage to get some footage on the manoeuvre tho, you can follow him on Twitter and check that out ;)

      2. Willoughby Krenzteinburg

        @Sebastian Andersson you understand that clouds are not transparent, right?

      3. Sebastian Andersson

        @NASASpaceflight yes i know, but still it never shows how its piercing trough the cloudlayer.

      4. NASASpaceflight

        SN15's belly flop was obscured by the cloud layer. As seen on our beach cam (in the video) it was already in the landing position when it emerged from the clouds. -Das

      Musk calling this rocket 'Starship' is like a neolithic man calling his spear 'inter-continental ballistic missile'.

        @2wi1elu im entirely fine with that

      2. 2wi1elu

        @Willoughby Krenzteinburg Ah, a mansplaining Musk fan, though that's redundant, all Musk fans mansplain. Thank god I stop reading after "The purpose of--".

      3. Willoughby Krenzteinburg

        The purpose of vocabulary is to relay information. You clearly aren't confused as to what is being referred to when the popular noun, 'Starship' is used in this context, so the name serves its purpose perfectly well. The Saturn V didn't go to Saturn, the Falcon 9 isn't a bird, and Everlast batteries don't last forever. If you're going to start complaining about things whose names aren't perfect describers of what those things are, you will not have time to do anything else.

      Falun Gong Promotes Harmony, Tolerance and Compassion Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua of Vaughan sent a greeting letter to the Falun Dafa Association of Canada, “As we recognize this year’s celebration virtually, we are reminded that we must continue to be anchored to faith, hope and optimism. We remain focuses on our recovery and the path forward. By working together and supporting one another, I am confident we will emerge stronger. “I want to take this opportunity to recognize the Association’s efforts to promote harmony, tolerance and compassion in Vaughan and beyond. Their contribution helps communities stay connected through improved access to programs and services focused on spiritual, mental and physical well-being and a healthier, more peaceful society.” Letter from Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua of Vaughan

    51. Kevin Casey

      Just a thought. Video froze from SN15 due to the link (probably in the 20 ish GHz range) being absorbed by the clouds but since telemetry is carried in the MHz range the clouds had no effect and the signal was rx'd as normal. Perhaps Nasaspaceflight could confirm?

      FLIGHT !! Man has dreamed of flying high Since birds first avoided his spear. Not until nineteen-o-three Was it done despite his fear. With gasoline and engine, Propellers and wings for lift The Wright brothers flew their plane And gave mankind their gift. Many countries built their planes As our world became insane. Planes were used in two world wars With bombs and bullets to rain. Now we fly in outer space In search of life's creation. Though most succeed, some will die Pioneers of aviation. Nothing else man can conceive Is more luring but God's sky. To be as one with the stars Is the wish of all who fly. THANK YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE IN YOUR HEART !

    55. Jim intheWeb

      My 2 cents; Long day, yet when the ventings began to happen, ooooo boy! -I was on the edge of my seat! Landing coming in @ vertical & @ higher elevation & slower followed with that final flash of umph just at near touchdown -I knew she'd "landed" (upright & in one piece). Then the nosecone peaked forth over the exhaust + dust. Successful Touchdown!!! . So yea, possibly have too weak a feed system via the (over)-pressurization & therefore why the pool of CH4 & fire. Could be??? Or the methane still spewing out post Raptor shutdown??? -is such possible? . Not a vertically plumb landing, yet she stuck. HISTORY done made. Congrats Elon.

      This just goes to prove how inapt governments are. NASA spent how much money picking astronants out of the ocean and how many billions wasted on first and second stages? Musk did this in a couple of years.

      1. Thomas Wright

        But he didn't do it from scratch. He had the benefit of 60 years of technology already being developed by others to start with. It's like saying, "Look how much those Vikings wasted building longships when Carnival now builds cruise ships!" Everything has to start somewhere.

    91. Diogo Souza

      Any idea what those small explosions under the raptors were after landing?? You can see them clearly on SpaceX stream (at 13min 13s). My guess is that they did something to clean the engines and avoid a RUD... maybe the engines spit whatever was still inside them?

      The smoothness of the flight along with how well the skin looks, SpaceX has really upgraded things on the starship. A few protypes models back you couldn't tell tell if they were making progress. Now you can.

      There will be no fire suppression systen when they land on Mars. What will they do then?

      1. Jake McKee

        There’s a natural fire suppression system. The atmosphere. It’s almost all CO2 and it’s very thin. It will put any fire out.
