SpaceX launch: SpaceX Launched 48 Starlink Satellite,Elon Musk’s dream of colonizing Mars hinges on Starship, which is why SpaceX is focused on developing and testing the powerful spacecraft while it is part of the ship that will travel to Mars without the super heavy booster Although Starship will not leave Earth, the Super Heavy booster is yet to be launched into orbit as SpaceX began testing some three years ago.
But now that’s changing as we bring you how SpaceX is getting super heavy as it nears an orbital launch, leaving no doubt that SpaceX is finally opening the final chapter in pre-orbital launch work on its Starship Elon Musk rocket. as the only hope of mankind.
To be clear it’s not about everyone going to Mars, it’s about becoming multi-planetary, I think Earth would be a good place to have a potentially life-threatening one on Planet Earth His long-term plan to avoid accidents includes starting a self-sustaining colony on Mars that he will build with about a million volunteers.
To move to another planet though the devil is in the details because moving 1 million people across millions of miles of space to a planet where everything has to be literally started from scratch is a daunting challenge. Mars is a harsh place to hang out and The Explorers will have to do a lot of preparations for Elon Musk to survive.
Which means moving many tons of supplies that would provide shelter and a means of growing food for the population. This is one of the Starship’s first duties as it will lift tons of cargo supplies first. The group of people to arrive at the Red Planet will actually serve as the first shelter on the planet for the Starship residents before other supporting structures are installed, according to SpaceX’s plans.
The Starship is configurable to be versatile enough for all of these tasks. Both cargo and crew transport When transporting cargo it will lift a payload in excess of 100 tonnes into orbit but will adjust when configured as a manned transporter.
Having eaten about 100 people at once and carried them to Mars, the super heavy booster SpaceX has succeeded with its Falcon Series booster Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy ex-cargo and crew, doing most of the heavy lifting to escape the gravitational pull of Earth. Launching the crew into space with NASA’s rocket from one of its customers also launched Starlink satellites into orbit for SpaceX.
The Falcon Heavy is the most powerful rocket in operation globally and will soon come out of hibernation although SpaceX has decided to develop an entirely new booster or lower stage system for not only the Starship but both the lower and upper stages as a new rocket. The engine will be powered by what is known as the Raptor engine.
Unlike most other rocket engines, the Raptor uses a combination of methane and oxygen as fuel which is very suitable as Elon Musk plans. SpaceX is already working on version 2 of the Raptor engine at its facilities to produce methane from material available on Mars and other planets.
The current Super Heavy Prototype B4, widely considered to be the first to be tested in orbit, has a total of 29 Raptor engines, all of which are sea-level versions because the booster is not required to fly through space, unlike a ship. SpaceX will eventually increase the number of Raptors to 33.
That configuration would then add more capacity to the booster, using the new more powerful, more efficient and less expensive Version 2 Raptor, which would enable the Starship to lift about 150 tons of payload at a time. That would make it the most powerful rocket ever built in the history of space travel, reusability one of the basing factors of Musk’s plans for the Starship.
Elon Musk and SpaceX, As such the ship Super Heavy is fully reusable which means it will fly many times. SpaceX began making reusable rockets with the Falcon rocket although they are partially reusable as only the boosters return reusability. , making the development work more complex but it is worth it because of the cost implications for eg.
Elon Musk promises a far more economical launch with Starship, he also hopes for a super heavy one that is vital if humanity is to ever expand beyond Earth and establish a self-sustaining base on another planet. Solve this problem whether it’s SpaceX or anyone else has to be able to do three launches in a day to solve a problem.
Unprecedented turnaround time As SpaceX is entering the final stages of development of the Super Heavy, that’s why you’ll see the arrows now b4 The covers on the prototype arrow covers are the shiny steel boxes you see on the surface of the boosters, their work on the boosters. to protect heat sensitive components that may be damaged by heat during takeoff and re-entry.
Both processes involve a lot of heat so there is no protection. The super heavy can be damaged and multiple flights per day would be impossible as spacex would have to replace the damaged parts before it could fly again, when you see the arrow cover you will know the end is near as they are usually the last components to be installed are one of.
In fact they are even needed for a nominal pre-burner test. This is because this type of test would produce a massive fireball that could swallow the aft of the super heavy if accompanied by flames for the static fire test. If not a complete booster, Raptors usually produce a smaller and briefer fireball during shutdown which is still sufficient.
Create another potential source of damage to any sensitive hardware located in or anywhere else in the thrust section of Booster 4 as such super heavy aero covers can be just as important for static fire escape as they are for live launch and landing. Meanwhile, SpaceX has piled up Starship.
Once again as was the case last August, although the crew used cranes to lift the ship aboard the Super Heavy last year, the latest successful stack involving Mekazilla equipped with a pair of arms attached to the launch tower, it would eventually Makes Elon Musk’s dream of using chopsticks a reality.
It might work to take Elon Musk’s wild idea of grabbing super heavy mid-air instead of landing it on his feet. Statue or better stills have been holding on for as long as SpaceX.
Attempting to capture the heaviest object ever in mid-air, there are many benefits to such a landing that is clearly a proud moment for the CEO, but capturing the super heavy will most likely be part of an upcoming orbital launch. Won’t happen, so we’ll have some time to wait before we see it.
Stacking after action SpaceX de-stacked the Starship still using chopsticks to lift the ship off the Super Heavy The crew moved the Super Heavy to a small con before moving the former back into the bay Crate pad adjacent to launch tower for cryogenic proof test, meanwhile SpaceX has gone ahead with cryogenic proof test.
Elon Musk and SpaceX, This test ensures that a spaceship can withstand in-flight atmospheric pressures and is achieved by simulating in-flight conditions by infusing extremely low temperatures. Starship with liquid nitrogen whose temperature is -196 °C or minus 320 °F.
The ship went through this test last year, but SpaceX is now taking the super heavy through the same paces SpaceX is preparing for the first cryogenic-proof test that involves a fully loaded booster. Liquid methane at the facility is filling the tank, which is required to have sufficient fuel for such testing.
Who knows it could also be a wet dress rehearsal, meanwhile SpaceX is working on expanding the Starbase facility in Texas. The interesting thing is which direction the expansion will take it, as SpaceX has generally been collecting falcons.
Rocket horizontally but Starship and Super Heavy are assembled almost exclusively vertically Which would be about eighteen meters.
Have a nice day!!⭐❤️
