    SpaceX is set to launch the Starship SN9 prototype to an altitude of approximately 10 kilometers. A launch attempt is possible between 9 am and 6 pm Central time on Tuesday. However, as with testing, there is always a chance that teams could decide to stand down and try again on a different day.

        @Pol Valls by failures i meant two landing failures. i still class both tests as successes.

        @some person on planet earth failures? It was a miracle that they didn't explode in the ignition or loose control durong the belly flop

      4. some person on planet earth

        give them time. just cause they had two failures doesn't mean they're never gonna do it. that's such a weak mindset. falcon 9 took many attempts to land properly and it does it all the time now.

      SN9 is nothing compared to what NASA did trying to get a man into space, and look how far SpaceX has come in such a short time, hell they've created a rocket program in less time than it's taking NASA to get James Web off the dam ground. Personally I think they stall for job security, not the agency it once was.

      Parece mentira pero, es cierto. La gente de Elon Musk en Boca Chica se confiaron a tal punto que por darnos un gran espectáculo por un poquito más cási pierden dos naves. 1. El lugar de aterrizaje debería de ser mucho más apartado de los puntos de despegue. 2. Tener la opción de 5 motores en vez de 3 para reaccionar a tiempo y encender al menos 3 cuando los principales fallen. 3. Hacer la maniobra de giro a mayor altura para prevenir las correcciones del aterizaje. 4. ¿Que ha pasado con ese grupo de jovenes y mentes brillantes que victorreaban y se gozaban cada logro al principio? ¿Ya no les piden sus opiniones? ¿DONDE ESTAN?

      Maybe SpaceX miscalculated final vertical flip timing before landing. Seems final vertical flip better come at least a few kilometers high, not 1 kilometer high as we so. They need to try the same idea as they do with Falcon Boosters. After belly flop and demonstrative controlled glide, flip the starship to vertical position. By the way, I think it can be accomplished using only winglets, without wasting fuel - it all should be computer controlled. It looks like after two test flights SN8 and SN9 the same problem persist - engine works perfect taking off in vertical position to the target altitude all works well, but after belly flop, engines could not get quality burn after being in glide at horizontal position. Let fuel settle where it belongs in the tanks for optimum fuel feed/proper pressure build-up in the lines and then fire all 3 engines on low throttle well before landing, just to test them and make sure they run properly. After a short test burn - pick 2 best running engines, shut down the worst performing one, and throttle all the way for a soft touch down. But optimally, if 2 engines thrust is needed for a proper landing - they should burn all 3 all the way to landing just to make sure in case one fails they still have two already running for sure to soft land. Fuel economy in play here, but it is clearly safety of landing depends on 2 engines and in 2 tests 1 engine fail doomed the mission. And finally to all the ppl who think that "SpaceX engineers knows what they are doing" - I say - clearly they are in uncharted territory, other wise we would not see these 2 huge fireballs in a row, and they need a feedback off the crowd ideas, in fact any idea no matter how crazy it maybe need to be entertained, after all what they are trying to do is pretty crazy, but the idea itself is by far NOT new. We believe you can fix it Elon!

      1. Ezra Starkey

        @Andrey Goretoy ummm no. He is an engineer. Like... the chief engineer. Amd he can, u know, HIRE people.

      2. Andrey Goretoy

        @Joe Nolan I want to mention that Elon is NOT an engineer, but a brilliant guy who can understand the matter of things if he wants to! Same goes to many people who interested in space flight. Space X did partially what I suggested should be done in my post weeks before SN10. I am not claiming they did take my advice - but idea proved to be sound. I believe SpaceX and Elon are brilliant champions of crowd sourcing for ideas. I understand there many advice thrown at them from everywhere, but only a fool would reject something that makes sense!.. and you r right - i don't even suggest that SpaceX made of fools, - its made of brilliant people!

      Este sistema de aterrizaje Vlanding "Vertical landing", es muy complejo y el cohete tiene que tener la mayor verticalidad posible antes de tomar tierra para que el sistema giroscopico no tenga que hacer demasiadas correcciones antes de posarse en la plataforma de aterrizaje!,me considero un buen aficionado a la astronautica desde 1982.Deberian incluir un paracaidas para reducir la velocidad a cierta altura y liberarlo antes de que la retropropulsion entre en accion.

      2. David Renaud

        There are plenty of 3D rendering of what the Starship should look like when it lands. As for the reason of "flip close, then land" scenario, is because fuel will be very limited if Starship goes to Low Earth Orbit or mars and descending slowly takes more fuel you don't have onboard.

      3. alida flus

        What is the main reason for flipping back to vertical so late in the flight cycle? So much inertia to counter. And what does the Starship landing config look like? It looks like it’s

      El primer problema del todos los prototipos sn9 y demás es el movimiento del combustible y el encendido tardío del mismo. Para eso tienen que fijarse en los tanques de los barcos que impiden el movimiento brusco....... Entonces hay que repasar los lanzamientos de otras naves y aprender de sus errores. Hay que trabajar más en ello. 🙏✈️🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🛸

      What is the main reason for flipping back to vertical so late in the flight cycle? So much inertia to counter. And what does the Starship landing config look like? It looks like it’s launched from a steel cage-like base. Is the base of the vehicle supposed to touch-down on the same platform, without any landing legs like the Falcon9 uses so successfully? Why not flip to the landing profile 1 to 2K feet higher? Are they sure there isn’t gas/liquid ‘sloshing’ during the fast flip that is causing any fuel cavitation? I know - Nerd talk.

      1. TimePro

        The starship does have landing legs that deploy when it slows down more. They were visible in SN5s hop

    67. MaxH

      Amazing accomplishments. As a Rocket Scientist - I have Aero/Astro graduate degrees and used to write guidance & control autopilot software for launch vehicles and satellites, I KNOW how hard this is to accomplish, and I am amazed at their massive successes. I just worry the slow FAA will get involved too much and add too much unnecessary oversight and waste - in time and bureaucracy. STAY AWAY. Keep your focus on Lockheed and Boeing’s version which is years late, 100X the cost, technologically inferior and on the verge of cancellation.

      There should be no more launches allowed until they completely rethink that launch process. Blind luck that one of those large pieces didn't land on top of the tank farm and wipe out the entire site. Only a matter of time if they continue down this road.

      1. Fred Bloggs

        That’s their decision, there’s no risk to life, it’s none of your business.

      2. TimePro

        What? No. That's the whole reason they are doing these launches. To re-think the launch process with the data from the other starships. Otherwise there would no other way.

      1. geemy geemy

        it lost an engine. I don't think it would have changed much if they tried to fire it earlier. probably for a manned flight or some more advanced test flight they could have some redundancy and plan the landing sooner so they have a plan b if a raptor does not fire up provided they have enough fuel for the landing it seems like they could compensate a limited loss of thrust with a longer landing, but there is still a stability issue, so they will probably focus more on improving the reliability of the raptors than put a bunch of redundant ones
