SpaceX, Elon Musk, Booster, Launch vehicle system tests, SpaceX South Texas launch site Updates! Super Heavy Booster 3 Static Fire Tomorrow! TheSpaceXShow
To kick off the video. There is some news of SpaceX partnering with Indian companies to produce satellite parts.. This article says In what could prove to be a big win for the government’s Make in India push Elon Musk led SpaceX is planning to join hands with Indian companies to locally manufacture, satellite communications equipment, including antenna systems and user terminal. Devices. Garrett, Reisman posted a Tweet saying, Affordable reusability, has become a critical component of spaceflight.. The shuttle was largely reusable, but the cost of maintenance between flights was very high.. In some cases it would have been cheaper to make new parts for each launch. … Musk responded with Took more work to make Falcon 9 booster reuse cost effective than went into recovering it in the first place.. This is an important point. Things finally, clicked into place with Block 5.. My hat is off to everyone at SpaceX NASA Space Force, FAA, amp suppliers who helped make it happen. Musk was then asked What was the most expensive part of reuse Was getting the fairings back in 1 piece. The key component He responded and said, Booster, is more than half cost of mission.. Fairing is 10. Moving onto Boca Chica Ground Support Equipment. Work continues at the orbital launch site tank farm.. The extension pieces were added to the integration tower stacking crane and it lifted its boom for more tower stacking. Heres a view of the cryo tank shell production., The next cryo tank shell has been rolled out to the launch site.
. Also, the 8th and final vehicle integration tower segment. Continues.. There was a Tweet posted about an article saying, Elon Musk Shares SpaceX’s Starship Raptor Production Plans To Colonize Mars By 2050.. Musk responded with Final decision made earlier this week on booster engine count. Will be 33 at 230, half million lbs sea level. Thrust. All engines on booster are same apart from deleting gimbal amp thrust, vector actuators for outer 20.. This barrel, section possibly for Ship 20, was seen with loads of heat shield. Tiles. This nosecone, possibly for Ship 20, also was stacked onto a barrel. Section. Last episode we saw 1 Raptor installed underneath B3, but 2 were actually delivered.. There was only 1 installed, though, as the other was taken back to the production. Site. Crews were seen continuing to work on B3 prior to the cryogenic proof. Testing. Then, on Monday, Booster 3 was the first Super Heavy booster to perform a cryogenic proof. Test. After cryo testing 2 additional Raptors were installed underneath Booster 3.. Mary posted a Tweet earlier today with some very exciting news, with a picture of an alert from Cameron County.. When these are issued, it is often a sign that SpaceX are targeting a static fire.. However, since that Tweet the testing will no longer be happening. Today. Once again taking a look at the road and beach closures. We know that Monday was utilised for cryo proof testing.. There was also a date for yesterday that was cancelled.
As well as that there was also a closure for today for the first Super Heavy static fire, but that was cancelled.. There is still an intermittent road closure for today, though, for something to be rolled out.. Then there is another road and beach closure for tomorrow, Thursday 15th, with the same static fire windows as Marys alert.. So we could see the first Super Heavy static fire as soon as tomorrow.. Finally, for this video, I want to share the latest Starbase production diagram thank to Brendan Lewis, as he has posted a new, updated diagram.. As always, I have to say thanks to Mary known as BocaChicaGal, who is out in Boca Chica, all the time, filming.. Also thanks to the NASASpaceflight team working behind the scenes on their videos, livestreams and other space, content. Thats it for this episode of TheSpaceXShow.
