Pictures: SpaceX lifts a massive Super Heavy rocket onto the launch pad
SpaceX is evolving vessel To transport people and transport the moon, Mars and other distant destinations. The system consists of two fully reusable parts: a giant first-stage rocket called the Super Heavy and a 50-meter-high spacecraft known as the Starship.
Espace X It has already launched prototypes of the Starship, sending a handful of three-engine vehicles to Maximum elevation of about 6 miles (10 kilometers). But the SN20 will take a much bigger step: It is scheduled to launch atop the Super Heavy on the Starship’s first orbital test flight, which SpaceX aims to launch in the coming weeks or months.
The timing of this takeoff is unclear, in part because the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is still conducting an environmental assessment of the star base’s orbital launch site. The FAA submitted a draft assessment and collected public comment on the document, but a final report has yet to be released.
Today’s test wasn’t the first stationary fire — a test in which missile engines engage briefly while the vehicle remains grounded — for the SN20. I played SpaceX Constant consecutive fires vehicle on October 21, but the SN20 had only two Raptors at the time. Today’s testing involved a flight configuration of six engines – three standard “at sea level” Raptors and three optimized to operate in the vacuum of space.
