Starship | SN11 | High-Altitude Flight Test

SpaceX

3,3 milj. näkymät1 330

    As early as Tuesday, March 30, the SpaceX team will attempt a high-altitude flight test of Starship serial number 11 (SN11) - our fourth high-altitude flight test of a Starship prototype from Starbase in Texas. Similar to previous high-altitude flight tests of Starship, SN11 will be powered through ascent by three Raptor engines, each shutting down in sequence prior to the vehicle reaching apogee - approximately 10 km in altitude. SN11 will perform 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 will descend under active aerodynamic control, accomplished by independent movement of two forward and two aft flaps on the vehicle. All four flaps are actuated by an onboard flight computer to control Starship’s attitude during flight and enable precise landing at the intended location. SN11’s Raptor engines will then reignite as the vehicle attempts a landing flip maneuver immediately before touching down on the landing pad adjacent to the launch mount.
    A controlled aerodynamic descent with body flaps and vertical landing capability, combined with in-space refilling, are critical to landing Starship at destinations across the solar system where prepared surfaces or runways do not exist, and returning to Earth. This capability will enable 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.
    Given the dynamic schedule of development testing, stay tuned to our social media channels for updates as we move toward SpaceX’s fourth high-altitude flight test of Starship!

      There is a better way to land StarShip and the heavy booster. If the landing pad was made out of a metal grid of sorts and raised 50+ feet into the air, when a space craft comes in for a landing the pad drops as the craft touches down. The pad then does all the breaking so no major legs are needed to cushion the landing. This is a much safer way to land. The drop and break landing pad absorbs all the energy. It can be made very low tech so as not to fail. Come on we can do this!

      I,m not an engineer but as I've seen the lift and landing, in case of landing maneuver it seems to have huge momentum that the engines can't harmonize the huge momentum to the required landing momentum or speed. Perhaps it may need more time as that landing maneuver must start from a reasonably high distance to enable the engines to harmonize the huge momentum, parachuting may be needed to reduce the great pressure created by engines abruptly to absorb the kinetic energy , in turn may lead to destroying the ship.

      too bad there's no space programs anymore even space movies goes out in touch with realities because we keep changing display technologies, what is space missions without displays. Unless spaceships is loaded with technologies and there's holodeck, where to have such realities, I still duno....if it's possible. But space will blow your mind is it comparable with colorfull 3D biotech...

      Thanks ! I know you all are very busy, but I wish Elon Musk and Team could find the time to help Pr. Biden & Congress implement the *American Jobs Plan* . Watching your amazing *skills* , the needs of America and the reality of the Work Force, there is a huge gap that this next Stimulus must end or Asia will eat USA lunch and dinner. Sometimes just pointing in the right direction and goals can make a World of Differences.

      Hey space X, Got some ideas for yall one increase the cone sizes of the raptor engines doesn't have to be circular maybe another spade, why can you add the honey comb slider like the other rocket, with the capability of closing the holes with the comb and control air flow, can aerodynamics help as well. Just an idea.

      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.

      An Idea. Why not to use helium atmosphere under the skirt of starship? It can eliminate burning of raptor engine and helium is allready in nose cone tank.

      Never will understand why you run two engines lean, can't make power without BTUs. Run them fat on the test stand. Flow pressures are different installed in the rocket. Oh well who am I. Should use inline accumulators at the engine in plumbing at the puck.

      1. Brent Smith

        I highly doubt they're running the engines lean. You always, always run rocket engines rich. Otherwise they disintegrate.

    58. Charles Belhumeur

      I'm sure you get a lot of ideas submitted like this and maybe its even annoying, but here goes another. Does SpaceX plan to develop any kind of need or capacity for in flight EVAs for things like repairs, inspections, upgrades, rescues, etc,? During an ISS EVA Chris Hadfield got something in his eye, a flake of soap I think. It completely incapacitated him and put him in significant peril for awhile. It seems silly that such a small thing created such a big problem for a highly trained astronaut in an expensive high tech suit! In an ordinary work environment a person, even weightless, would just wipe the crap out their eye with a finger, no problemo. It's kind of a big flaw in these high tech conventional space suits that their design robs the astronauts of a capacity for such simple basic human actions. I started thinking of a way to fix this. I came up with the idea of a skiffsuit. A skiffsuit would be a small spacecraft, skiff, with capacity to maneuver in orbit or in flight to Mars. It would be big enough to support 2 astronauts for a day or two. About the size of a Chevy van. It would have the upper half of a spacesuit on the end of a tubular cherry picker or space arm extension. Astronauts would crawl into the tube to put their upper body into the space suit end with some footholds in the tube. The space arm tube could then be maneuvered into position by the astronaut to do repair, upgrade, inspection work by the astronaut. The skiff would have an automated station keeping that would counter any forces the astronaut has to apply to the work. The skiff, space arm and suit would all be one continuous pressurized volume. If an astronaut got something in their eye, got a bad cramp or whatever they could just crawl back into the bigger volume of the skiff to fix it. They could also easily crawl back into the skiff to take a break, eat, rest, use the toilet, whatever to satisfy basic personal needs. Astronauts could safely, comfortably and easily conduct EVA work for days in the skiff. I got the idea watching power grid workers working on transmission lines from cherry picker trucks. I noticed they never used their lower bodies other than just to stand in the buckets. They did complicated and precise work to a high standard with just their upper bodies.

    64. Tobias Hohmann

      What if you didn't use wings and instead use the magnus effect to slow the speed. The rocket is put on its side and then rotated by the cold gas thrusters. in the end the rotation is stopped because it ran out of rotational energie or by the thruster (maybe even main thruster, they have to be reignited anyway). Benefits of this system would be safed weight by not needing the flaps, when reentering the side that is on the top at a given moment can cool down (would need heatshield all around but way thinner. Also the consequential horizontal movement that is introduced by the magnus effect could help bring starship back to the site.

      1. random games

        Not sure if I completely understand that you're saying, but it would probably have very strong g force's do to the fact that it would be spinning, and it they lost control at all, they couldn't get it back. Still a cool idea tho

      Hm! I think a comprehensive structural analysis of the materials to build the engines, pipes and tanks is in order. Possible defective materials, construction debris perhaps but not likely as that should show up during static firing. Although I think those static tests are too short, and not enough lengthy refireing. After all,, that's where the problem is coming from. Are you using identical SN Tanks during your tests instead of direct feed of fuel?

They are test vehicles, they are supposed to fail to gather data so they can make the safest spaceship possible. It still hurts to see your baby get destroyed. Keep it going. One day people will be riding Starship like it’s commercial airline to the Moon and Mars.

      When will this egomaniac stop playing with shareholders cash and start making a profit for dividends. Or better still, give a billion a month to Italy, France, Iran, Iraq, Syria and any African nation that isn't fighting a civil war. Have humanity before a toy rocket that sometimes works. And for what purpose ? Its a human disgrace and so is Virgin's version.

      1. Brent Smith

        SpaceX are a private company, and Elon owns 78% of the voting shares, thus giving him a supermajority. So the only shareholder he is beholden to is himself. He can do whatever he wants and the people holding the other 22% have no say in the matter. They knew what they were signing up for when they bought in, yet did so anyway, so clearly they feel they're getting a good deal. I for one would take that deal. When Starlink goes wide it's going to print $$$, regardless of Elon's antics.

      2. ivanflinn

        If for example Nasa was shutdown, I can almost definitely say that the money would only be put into more military/government stuff. It wouldn't really help anyone and if it does it's only short term while space exploration is long term for all humans. What I'm trying to say is in a perfect world the money would go to charity and stuff like that but in reality It would only be used to buy more army shit and nothing long term.

      Looks like the second engine was in some kind of distress on the ascent. At around 6:11 you can see a small fire break out on the right side of the engine. The plume colour was also a bit yellow-ish, I think this is suggestive of too much oxidiser (or fuel?), maybe there was a leaky pipe or something wrong with the turbo-pump. Perhaps this engine exploded on the landing burn, or the pipe ruptured and blew the tank.
