Starship. Today I am back to update the latest information of SpaceX.. If you do not see English subtitles, please press the CC button on the screen of Youtube. Hope you enjoy watching the video. SpaceX seems to have gone a long time without launchingor blowing upa rocket at its South Texas launch site.. A little more than two months have passed since the company launched its SN15 Starship prototype to an altitude of 10 km before safely landing the vehicle on May 5.. The SpaceX engineering team apparently got the data it needed from that test flight because the company scrapped plans to fly its next prototype, the SN16 in favor of moving toward higher flights. Accordingly activity at the so called quotStarbasequot facility near Boca, Chica Texas, has focused on building Up capabilities for an orbital launch attempt of the Starship system. During the last two months, SpaceX has constructed a massive launch tower to support a full stack of the Super Heavy booster and the Starship upper stage.. The company has also built several new large tanks as part of the ground support equipment that fuels the massive vehicles with liquid oxygen and methane.. Finally, SpaceX technicians and engineers have been assembling the Super Heavy boosters themselves and the company rolled quotBooster 3quot to the launch pad at the beginning of July.. This is the first full scale, booster prototype to actually undergo testing, and it has passed cryogenic pressure tests of its fuel tanks. This week the company added three Raptor rocket engines to Booster 3 and told area residents.

It may conduct a static fire test of the vehicle as soon as Thursday July 15.. The road closure schedule indicates a potential test window from noon. Local time to 10 pm 1700 UTC Thursday to 0300 UTC Friday. SpaceX, founder Elon Musk, has said. Booster 3 will not launch, but if all goes well with its ground testing, the company will proceed with a launch of Booster 4.. This rocket is already being built at the company’s assembly facility, a few kilometers from the launch site in South Texas., Where, as SpaceX is testing Booster 3 with three Raptor engines, a fully orbital version of Super Heavy will have 33 of the methane fueled. Raptors. SpaceX has been building quotShip 20. This is the first of a new generation of Starship prototypes with features that will allow them to ascend into space and then return to Earth.. Much of the Ship 20 rocket is already complete in a high bay facility in Boca Chica Texas., All of this workon rockets, the tower and ground systemsis in preparation for the test launch of Super Heavy and Starship later this summer. SpaceX wants to make this test. Flightwhich will see the Starship vehicle travel most of the way around Earth before making a controlled re entry into the ocean north of Kauaias early as August.. However, regulatory hurdles remain., In addition to all of the technical work and testing to be done, SpaceX still needs to obtain launch permission from the Federal Aviation Administration, which is reviewing the environmental status of the launch facility in South Texas.

. The FAA said, as of May, it has yet to make a decision on whether to allow SpaceX to launch orbital Starship missions from South Texas. If youre excited about the groundbreaking work of spaceX hit that, like button and subscribe to our channel.
