SpaceX is losing another prototype of Starship

SpaceX's test missile, SN11 Starship, detonated at a high altitude at the end of the test flight, and a dense fog at the launch site initially left the company unsure of the exact cause of the explosion.

(Elon Musk) Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, confirmed the bombing through his official Twitter account.

Since the spaceship crashed or exploded shortly after landing, all three SpaceX rocket launches have failed.

SpaceX engineer John Innsbrucker said the missile, dubbed SN11 Starship, has a natural climbing ability. Before the aerial camera loses the signal and crashes the fog immediately before landing, everything appears to be fine. Not bad.

He added: After SpaceX engineers can verify the landing site, the company will post updates via social media platforms and need to clean the area around the vehicle for safety reasons.

The company does not want any footage to be recovered, and the independent video broadcaster who recorded the flight did not complete the final delay due to thick fog. However, the NASASpaceflight media site reported that one of the cameras could collide with missile debris.

SN11 is the first iteration of an interstellar rocket that Musk will one day consider taking humans to Mars. This is the fourth prototype that SpaceX has launched on a high-altitude test flight as the company wants to know how to safely land a giant plane. After returning to Earth, it is in an upright position.

The latest aviation prototype, the SN10, landed upright earlier this month, but independent footage of activity showed it exploded three minutes later.

Musk first explained the planned landing of the spacecraft during a media event in September 2019.

He described it as one action that keeps the missile stationary, and added: The aim of the procedure is to simulate a parachute jumper falling in the air, rather than landing vertically on the ground when the Falcon 9 rocket returns to the ground. Earth.

The company's website states that mastering the landings is essential to building a fully reusable transportation system that can transport crews and cargo traveling long distances between planets and help people return to the planets Moon and Mars. And beyond.

SpaceX intends to use the "interplanetary spacecraft" for a variety of purposes, including transporting tariff agents between cities at extremely high speeds, which could help NASA land on the moon and launch human missions on Mars.

The interplanetary spacecraft is still in the early stages of development, the large prototype has yet to be built, and the company has not publicly tested the extremely heavy rocket, a much-needed massive launcher that can propel the spacecraft to Earth, or a space orbit. . Exceed.

Musk said in a recent interview that he expects the "interplanetary spacecraft" to operate scheduled flights before 2023, and hopes to go into orbit before the end of this year.
