The development of the Starship, SpaceX’s new spacecraft, continues to progress. Now, the company has one goal in its plans: for the spacecraft to fly from Texas to the coast of Hawaii.
Little by little the Starship managed to meet every time MaGoals. From a height of tens to hundreds of meters, to Your first vertical landing After the test, at the beginning of May. Now, SpaceX is working on bringing its prototype spacecraft into orbit, taking off in Boca Chica, Texas, and landing in the ocean off the coast of Hawaii.
The process will be like this Status: The spacecraft, powered by one of its extremely heavy engines, will launch at Boca Chica, and will detach in the middle From the air, about 3 minutes after takeoff. The thrust stage will lower (or perhaps land) in the Gulf of Mexico about 30 kilometers offshore. On the other hand, the spacecraft will continue its journey into low orbit, and before it completes a revolution around the Earth, it will descend from the atmosphere and fall into the ocean, about 100 kilometers northwest of the coast of Kauai, one of the Hawaiian islands.
This plan was described in a document SpaceX registered with the US government recently, providing what will be one of its next and most ambitious tests yet with its new spacecraft, which SpaceX plans to someday transport humans. I love you.
At the moment, the exact date to take the test is unknown, but it is expected to be sometime between the end of this year and March 1, 2022. We will be on alert. [Via[vía[عبر[víaedge]
