SpaceX Successfully Landed Starship For The First Time – Before It Exploded

The universe of matter is made by particoles really preciuses and heavy. Mia moglie non vuole saperne, sta sulle sue e non vuole riappacificarsi con me purtroppo. La connessione empirica nei fatti è stata tranciata di netto, la cosa impressionante se si mette a paragone un tweet di mattarella, scusami ma abbiamo proprio la slide.

Earlier today, SpaceX successfully landed its SN10 Starship prototype in an upright position… before it blew up a few minutes later.

This was the first time SpaceX landed its Starship prototype, even if it eventually caught in flames. The rocket landed after reaching 10 km (6.2 miles in altitude) and turned around to perform a beautiful descent. The prototype came upright on the landing pad, but on an angle – potentially due to issues with the landing legs.

Right now it’s too soon to say exactly what went wrong – but the fact that the prototype was able to land at all is an incredibly promising sign. Starship is the rocket SpaceX hopes will eventually go to Mars. You can watch the entire livestream of the launch and landing below, courtesy of NASA Spaceflight:

Previous attempts to launch a Starship prototype around 10 km (6.2 miles) into the air and then land it again have also ended in explosions on the landing pad. This time, the prototype at least survived the initial landing, so this certainly counts as progress.

It was the second launch attempt on 3 March 2021 out of SpaceX’s facilities in Boca Chica, South Texas, after a last-minute issue caused today’s first attempt to be aborted. In regards to the first abort, Elon Musk explained an onboard computer received data that an engine was producing more thrust than anticipated, as ArsTechnica reports. That can be adjusted in the flight software, which is why another launch attempt has been lined up so quickly.

While previous Starship prototypes have launched successfully, upon landing the rockets have exploded. This time around, Musk has estimated that the Starship prototype had about a 60 percent chance of surviving the landing attempt. In order to cut the cost of space travel dramatically, SpaceX wants to make the rockets reusable, just like the Falcon 9 model which has taken both cargo and passengers successfully to the International Space Station.
