SpaceX SN9 Cratered


Recommended Posts

They launched the SN9 Starship today. It looked great until they tried to restart engines. It looks like only one came online properly. It belly-flopped and exploded a few hundred feet from SN10. I’m sure it must be frustrating for them, but their progress is still impressive. Maybe the third try will be the charm.

That thing was so loaded down with sensors, they'll know exactly where the failure was as soon as they interpret the data. 

Space is hard. Musk is doing more to push the future of space exploration than any other person or government in the world. Dude's eccentric, but he's a dreamer and doer. 


That was a mighty big boom, though. 

I wonder about a drogue chute, just to get the thing pointing vertical again on the way down.
