The new and largest rocket of Space Exploration Technologies Corp. has successfully landed on its third test plane, a landmark future spacecraft set to fly people in 2023.
The specimen of the Starship SN-10 was removed from the SpaceX ocean opening at about 5:15 p.m. in Boca Chica, Texas, on Wednesday, based on live video streaming on the SpaceX website. The rocket then flew about 10 miles (about 6 miles) before reversing its engines until it landed on the landing side.
The successful arrival – the first in the arts – marks the beginning of a new phase of massive car development, SpaceX founder Elon Musk plans to use it to shut down about 12 people around the moon in two years, put NASA astronauts on the face of the moon and eventually settle astronauts on Mars. The company is still in the process of preparing the Starship for its first space flight, which could take place later this year.
I am very confident that we will be around many times with the Starship before 2023, and that it will be safe enough to transport people by 2023, ‘Musk said in a video released by Japanese businessman Yusaku Maezawa, who invited eight people to apply to join his’ fun trip’ around the moon. ‘Looks very promising.’
The previous Starship rocket hit hard on December 9, setting it on fire, followed by a similar result in the second model last month. No one was injured in the incident.
SpaceX is building a Starship stainless steel as an easy-to-use, fully usable art that can carry a hundred tons of metrics on deep space travel to the moon and Mars. It is also designed to act as a hypersonic, point-to-point vehicle to reduce travel times around the World.
In addition to the heavy booster that creates a two-stage system, the Starship is 49 meters high by 30 meters, and is capable of carrying up to 100 passengers.
Musk said in October that 80% to 90% were confident that the Starship would be ready to sail this year. SpaceX, based in Hawthorne, California, plans to fly several Starship prototypes at its launch site in Texas near the US-Mexico border.
