SpaceX wants to impose its 'own legal regime' on Mars for human settlements. A space law expert says that's dubious, but Earth should take it seriously anyway.

An illustration of SpaceX's Starship rocket system lifting off from a Mars city and heading back to Earth. SpaceX/YouTube Elon Musk wants to build a settlement on Mars using Starship, a new fully reusable rocket system that SpaceX is developing to carry 100 people per flight. SpaceX's general counsel recently said he's drafting "a constitution for Mars" and that the company may impose its "own legal regime" on the red planet. SpaceX apparently wants Mars to be "a free planet" where "no...

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's Starship SN5 Testbed Successfully Makes 150m Controlled Flight

Zitchas writes: On Tuesday evening, SpaceX launched a testbed system which flew 150m into the air, hovered, and made a controlled landing. This testbed is noteworthy for being made out of stainless steel, as well as for being powered by a single off-center raptor engine. It demonstrates that the propulsion system can successfully compensate for the off-balanced propulsion via vectored thrust, as well as handle the stresses involved with landing and take-off. You can watch the testbed system laun...
