Watch: SpaceX Starship prototype explodes on landing (again)

SpaceX's Starship SN9 rocket prototype had a successful launch yesterday in Boca Chica, Texas, reaching an altitude of about 6 miles. But, like the Startship prototype in December, its landing ended with an explosion. From Reuters: The Starship SN9 that blew up on its final descent, like the SN8 before it, was a test model of the heavy-lift rocket being developed by billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk's private space company to carry humans and 100 tons of cargo on future missio...

SpaceX’s Starship prototype once again flies to great heights, and again explodes on landing

SpaceX has once again flown its Starship spacecraft, a still-in-development space launch vehicle it’s building in south Florida. This test was a flight of SN9, the ninth in its current series of prototype rockets. The test involved flying SN9 to an altitude of around 10 km (just over 6 miles or nearly 33,000 feet). After reaching that apogee, the SN9 spacecraft altered its attitude to angle for re-entry (simulated, since it didn’t actually leave Earth”s atmosphere) and then descended for a contr...

SpaceX may have purchased 2 oil rigs off the coast of Texas that could be turned into 'floating' Starship launchpads

SpaceX/YouTube SpaceX appears to have acquired two oil rigs that it may transform into launch platforms for its forthcoming Starship rocket system, NASASpaceflight reported.  The floating "spaceports" would add to SpaceX's operations in Boca Chica, Texas, which are under a new environmental review. Launching rockets from the water should be less disruptive for nearby residents.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. You may know Deimos and Phobos as the names of Mars' moons....

SpaceX bought two oil rigs to convert into offshore launch pads for Starship

SpaceX’s next spacecraft is in development in Texas, and CEO Elon Musk previously revealed that the company was planning to build floating spaceports for Starship operations, after a job ad was posted looking for someone to oversee their development. Now, SpaceX has purchased two oil rigs to convert for this purpose, as first reported by spaceflight.com’s Michael Baylor, and . The rigs have been named Deimos and Phoibos by SpaceX, which are the names of the two moons of Mars (and the names of t...

Elon Musk says SpaceX to double launch pad usage for Starship tests, Super Heavy flights coming in a ‘few months’

SpaceX is set to significantly ramp up its Starship development program in the new year, in more ways than one. SpaceX CEO and founder Elon Musk noted on Twitter on Thursday that the company will seek to make use of both of its two launch pads at its development facility in Boca Chica, Texas with prototype rockets set up on each, and that it will begin flight testing its Super Heavy booster (starting with low-altitude ‘hops’) in as few as “a few months” from now. Recently, SpaceX has set u...

Watch SpaceX fly its Starship spacecraft during its first high-altitude test live

SpaceX is all set to conduct a high-altitude test of its Starship rocket – a first for the spacecraft prototype design. The test will see Starship serial number 8 (SN8) fly from SpaceX’s development site in Cameron County, Texas, climb to a max height of around 41,000 feet, and then return to Earth during a controlled landing using its Raptor engines, if all goes exactly to plan. SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has noted that things likely won’t go exactly to plan with this test, saying he anticipate...

SpaceX targeting next week for Starship’s first high-altitude test flight

SpaceX looks ready to proceed to the next crucial phase of its Starship spacecraft development program: A 15km (50,000 feet) test flight. This would far exceed the max height that any prior Starship prototype has achieved so far, since the current record-setting hop test maxed out at around 500 feet. Elon Musk says that SpaceX will look to make its first high-altitude attempt sometime next week. This tentative date (these are always subject to change) follows a successful static test fire of ...

Elon Musk says SpaceX has a 'fighting chance' of sending its giant Starship rocket to Mars in 2024 — 2 years later than previously hoped

SpaceX founder Elon Musk. Paul Hennessy/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images Elon Musk said Friday that SpaceX has a "fighting chance" of sending an uncrewed Starship rocket to Mars in 2024, later than previously hoped. The SpaceX Starship rocket, designed to hold as many as 100 passengers and carry heavy payloads, is still in early testing stages. Musk said in 2017 that on his "aspirational" timeline, SpaceX would send a rocket to Mars in 2022, followed by a crewed mission two years l...

SpaceX completes another successful short test flight of its Starship spacecraft prototype

SpaceX has done it again – a second ‘hop’ flight in under a month for its Starship prototype. This was a 150 meter (just under 500 foot) test flight from its Boca Chica, Texas development site. The prototype used in this instance was SN6, a more recent model than the SN5 test article that SpaceX used to complete a similar test at the beginning of August. The hop flight is a key part of its testing program for Starship, and its Raptor engine. These prototypes are equipped with only one such en...

SpaceX successfully flies its Starship prototype to a height of around 500 feet

SpaceX has been developing Starship, its next-generation spacecraft, at its site in Boca Chica, Texas. The company has built a number of different Starship prototypes to date, include one prior version called the Starhopper that was essentially just the bottom portion of the rocket. Today, the company flew its first full-scale prototype (minus the domed cap that will appear on the final version, and without the control fins that will appear lower down on its sides), achieving an initial fligh...
