SpaceX, Elon Musk, NASASpaceFlight.com, Flight test rship: What’s holding up for next SN9 flight test? Elon Musk blames the FAA!
. Our first news for today is based on Elon Musks clash with the FAA on Starship. SpaceXs Starship. Serial number 8 SN8 test flight was carried out just more than a month before, with approval of Federal Aviation Administration, to demonstrate the rockets ability to securely launch to high altitudes and return back to earth. The vehicle exploded on a landing attempt for a pressurization issue.. Within a short gap of more than a month, SpaceX has gone through a series of events., Ultimately on the verge of launching SN9, a serious clash has grown between SpaceX, CEO Elon Musk and the US Federal Aviation Administration regarding prolonged delays in granting Starship launch license. All Processes from preparing a Starship for a wet dress rehearsal to Raptor engine static fire tests are indistinguishable from official procedures.. This delay in granting the license has been seriously disrupting the SpaceX test launch cadence. In the overture of an odd last minute, abort of Starship SN9s. First, real launch attempt Musk was seriously disappointed.. He cursed the FAAs space division with this words that FAAs regulatory structure is fundamentally broken and, under their rule, humanity will never get to Mars.. After that briefing about the status of the rockets FAA launch license. Spacex seemed to start loading Starship SN9 with liquid oxygen and methane propellant.. Now its our wish to see the Federal Aviation Administration quickly, resolving the issue of licensing SN9 to see starship roaring in sky. In the next segment. We have some great news for the space lovers.

Department. SpaceXs two drone ships named Just Read The Instruction and, Of Course I Still Love You always stay on duty for a quick booster recovery.. As a quick reminder, SpaceX launched two Falcon 9 rockets. First one was the Starlink 16 launch for SpaceXs starlink constellation program and another one was a rideshare mission to launch a total 143 satellites to Orbit known Transporter 1 mission on January 20 and 24. In both launches SpaceX successfully landed two of its booster on the drone Ships Just Read The Instruction and Of Course I Still Love You.
. On January 24, Booster 1051, which was flown in Starlink 16 mission, returned on SpaceXsJust, Read The Instruction drone ship. A twitter account named Richard Angle: posted the update of SpaceXs booster return. 8 flights and landings for Booster 1051, now Marching closer to 10 flights as SpaceX increases. Its launch cadence this year., The workhorse Falcon9 fleet and crews working them will certainly keep very busy. He twitted.. On the other hand, Booster 1058, which was flown in Transporter 1 mission, came back to port 3 days after the return of the first booster. Wednesday. Richard posted a tweet Booster 1058 returned to Port Canaveral. This morning. After its 5th successful mission for SpaceX., The Falcon9 will now be readied for its 6th mission..

Three rockets, namely Long March 2F Long March 5B and Long March 7 rockets are set aside for launch missions of the Chinese space station construction.. These rockets will be launched from three launch pads of two space centers for launching the core cabinet of the space station. At first then, Tianzhou 2 cargo spaceship mission will be conducted and finally, Shenzhou 12 crewed spaceship will be launched into space this year for complete docking procedure monitoring and in orbit technological verification.. The Chinese space station construction requires numerous docking procedures in orbit with different spacecrafts.. First instance of it will be the docking of crewed spaceship with core cabinet.. The Long March rockets involved in the launch will have no gap between missions at an initial stage, which is to be done without any failure.. The China Aerospace Corporation CASC announced that Long March 11 will carry out nearly five space launch missions in 2021.
