Starship | SN10 | High-Altitude Flight Test


8M zhlédnutí1 052

    On Wednesday, March 3, Starship serial number (SN10) successfully completed SpaceX’s third high-altitude flight test of a Starship prototype from our site in Cameron County, Texas.
    Similar to the high-altitude flight tests of Starship SN8 and SN9, SN10 was powered through ascent by three Raptor engines, each shutting down in sequence prior to the vehicle reaching apogee - approximately 10 km in altitude. SN10 performed 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 descended under active aerodynamic control, accomplished by independent movement of two forward and two aft flaps on the vehicle. All four flaps were actuated by an onboard flight computer to control Starship’s attitude during flight and enabled a precise landing at the intended location. SN10’s Raptor engines reignited as the vehicle performed the landing flip maneuver immediately before successfully touching down on the landing pad!
    As if the flight test was not exciting enough, SN10 experienced a rapid unscheduled disassembly shortly after landing. These test flights are all about improving our understanding and development of 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.

      Those rockets are a waste of time and money they're dangerous because you have to carry that fuel for landing which also makes it not economical it's a waste of time and money

      1. SFS Jolt

        Oh so you just want to watch humanity falter as we progress, no we need to build space rockets capable of mars missions for humans and beyond, if not humans will eventually meet 5hier fate stuck on the planet, I don't see why you say this with such stupidity

      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.

      1. Igor Delta F.

        I wrote the wrong number of days. It's +400 to 500 days. Yet not for this decade. It's just my opinion, I hope I'm wrong. Thank you Matt for remind me to correct the days. Mr. Lmao, sorry to challenge your beliefs, if you don't agree write why you don't, instead of going straight to offensive words.

        so is this "argument" just some copy paste shit or are you part of a hivemind? i've seen this exact comment several times now.

      5. Matt's Youtube stuff

        @Igor Delta F. I'm not sure where you get 1400 days from. During the closest approach, Mars is about a 6-9 month journey depending on which year you launch. That is maximum ~270 days trip one way to Mars. Perhaps you can be more specific on where you are getting your numbers from

      What a bunch a shit! Can't believe y'all into this crap, CGI at the end got me cracking, no craft can do that TODAY , c'mon guys wake the fuck up

      1. alexn

        @JP muro I have shown you multiple videos captured by amateurs, yet you still insist on cgi? What's your proof of CGI?

      2. alexn

        @JP muro (That was SN11 the twitter pic, the links are SN10)

      3. alexn

        @JP muro Well sure since that was filmed before the launch, lemme find you an amateur video of it. Theres also RGV Aerial Photography, and after the bellyflop Fail of SN11 they photgraphed it's nosecone laying on the ground im gonna get you some links.

      4. JP muro

        The real question lies beyond you and me and what we both think. Theres proof , that this is all a hoax. The question is why are you defending something that you can't prove, while all claims against what your trying to cling to have tons of facts , scientific, to back them up. My proof is right there , the cgi sequence at the end and the so called landing, i know its hard. We both have our own truths and i respect that, its just that's this is soo in our faces , its impossible not to see. And question its nature

      5. JP muro

        We'll , yes , i see it. It never took off. Did it? i mean i could go there tomorrow and take a pic, what's your proof? Where's the footage of take off and descent.

      What I don’t like about the BFR is that there is no redundancy. Since fuel tanks are located in the nose cone, the crew cannot jettison from the top to escape an inevitable failure. Any manned flights must have redundancy.

      1. Eduardo Rodriguez Vazquez

        @Saanichton Ministries I agree ...,.. I don’t see nasa trusting SpaceX to place astronauts on Mars anytime soon until starship has at least 200-600 successful flights without incidence along with a smart AI to pilot starship However SpaceX does have falcon Heavy which is a proven space vehicle which I do see NASA trusting to send to the moon or Mars 🥲 Only the future will tell

      2. Saanichton Ministries

        @Eduardo Rodriguez Vazquez fair enough. After a study of the STS program, it would be a nightmare to fly on a rocket. As a pilot myself, it is fascinating science. But way too risky. I don’t ever see the risk factor going away. Man it too flawed. Too much can go wrong in manned space flight. Too many extremes. I don’t know if it is ethical watching people kill themselves trying to go to Mars.... like the Mars one project?

      3. Eduardo Rodriguez Vazquez

        @Saanichton Ministries Is this suppose be hyperbole ....? Obviously not, they only flow 4 of them🤦🏻and their still very much prototype rockets That’s the equivalence of me asking you if you’d like a flight on the wrights brothers first plane .....

      I like how they cut out where it exploded anyway. Scrub X blew it again. At least they are consistent.

      1. Matt's Youtube stuff

        They didn't cut anything out. The livestream ended shortly after landing. The explosion happened approx 7/8 minutes later

      2. K4!T3N

        Did you even seen the live stream?

      3. 69

        This is the testing stage it's normal for things to blow up.

      4. alexn

        @Jephro321 Was saying no to you stating they cut it out. Yes it exploded, but they didnt "cut it out" they ended the stream before it exploded.

      5. Jephro321

        @alexn no what it blew up period.

    68. gilbondfac

      launch pad is too close to the installations ! dangerous

    69. KK FF

      When landing, the ignition is too late to correct. It needs to be 1-2 seconds earlier.The liquid fuel bunker should be divided into many small bunkers. Otherwise, if the whole bunker is turned vertically to horizontal, and then to vertical, the kinetic energy of the liquid itself can heat itself, causing expansion and deflagration

      1. Epic gamer Heap1

        @TimePro oh nvm I commented on this before I check Elon’s Tweet again I kinda didn’t remember the case

      2. TimePro

        @Epic gamer Heap1 Starship DOES use helium. After SN8s crash helium was put into the header tank of SN9 and SN10 to keep the tank pressurized and to prevent what happened to SN8. The helium was not supposed to be ingested.

      3. Epic gamer Heap1

        @TimePro An Starship does not have helium it only uses lox, methane fuel and pressure.

      4. TimePro

        @Epic gamer Heap1 That would be the case for SN8. SN10 has a hard landing because it ingested helium unexpectedly.

      5. Epic gamer Heap1

        It is not late according to Elon the single raptor engine was low on thrust to due low pressure inside of one of the tanks

      Need to add a parachute placed on top of the missile, when it falls straight. Need to improve the landing cooling system with the missile fixation axle after landing, I mean upgrading the yard system so that under it there is a shaft that can move and attach itself. as a landing gear. Maybe so, try using a flying parachute that cuts off when the Rocket is falling in mid-air. hm ... i think this idea can be sold, maybe n't 😄

      1. It’s grant

        @Huỳnh Đức Lê Please for the love of god stop calling it a missile!

      2. alexn

        @Huỳnh Đức Lê Yes, but they've already demonstrated they can land it without, and a parachute would also increase turnaround time for reuse. No need for one if propulsive landing can already yield the requested results.

      3. Huỳnh Đức Lê

        @alexn I know it's heavy, I mean the parachute is only used for a short time and then cut off when the missile is horizontal, except that the missile is placed at the top of the missile retained at the upright position. The parachute flew horizontally should be two moderate instead of one large enough to bear the load since it would be cut off to enter the final stage anyway. Although mainly used to reduce the force and help more stability, the possibility of wind, the weather will adversely affect the parachute and affect the missile but this problem can be improved. which is that you can use three parachutes to change your posture from horizontal to straight if you cut the parachute from the tail of the Rocket.

      4. alexn

        Starship is too heavy for a parachute.

    72. nice guy

      what do you make of this: Take a look at the spaceX logo. (the actual logo). When I look at the logo SpaceX... I'm seeing: Spy.... then it says..... Cc .....(which in numerology is 33. Freemasons number). .... Then what looks like a symbol that appear to be something trying to 'break out of the dome". So that's one interpretation. Or another: Spa cex. Or in other words "Spa Sex". then the X in that looks like it could represent the act of sex (look carefully, it's crazy.) (boom-chic-a-waa-waa). Okay and a 3rd interpretation goes like this: SpaceX. Well "X" in english and internationally is a way of saying "No". So it's Space-NO. or in reverse: No Space. Which is pretty obvious these days. So those are 3 interpretations of the SpaceX LOGO.

What has he turned out yet that's actually a quality product that's not a lie or a scam??? The car is one thing, because it's just a really really shitty car. But the rockets are total frauds. It's not space exploration. It's a fireworks company. People are so dumb they don't understand anything.

    73. Biljana Milinčić-Bežanović

      I think that the engineers made a mistake in constructing the "SN" rocket in that they practically limited the cooling of the "Raptor" engine. When the descent starts and the engines start, they start or do not work. Then air pressure is created which returns the heat to the "pot", so to speak. With Falcon rockets, the engines are free and they don't have that problem. One of the solutions is to drill holes in the lower part, next to the legs, or to line the engines with refractory material.
