SpaceX Conducts Takeoff Test Of New Starship Prototype


SpaceX, a pioneer in the field of civil space aviation, has taken another step towards quiet manned space travel. The firm carried out the takeoff and landing of the Starship spacecraft in Tests on Thursday. 

In the past, Space Studies have been initiatives initiated by governments. Currently, private organizations such as SpaceX, Blue Origin, Virgin Galactic operate in this field. The best-known of them is SpaceX.

SpaceX, which is focused on Elon Musk's goal of one day making a manned journey to Mars, is continuing its work to develop the rocket starship that suits that goal. A second prototype trial was conducted for this vehicle of the firm within a month.

Starship takeoff successful

SpaceX took an important step Thursday to develop the next-generation starship, the firm said in a statement. SpaceX, which announced that its Starship prototype, serial number 6, was undergoing takeoff and landing tests at the firm's facilities in Boca Chica, Texas, said the rocket went up a little over 150 meters before landing.

This rocket study took place in almost the same way as the previous study, in which the take-off and landing tests of the rocket serial number 5 were carried out. This shows that the system is generally functioning as planned.

In developing Starships, SpaceX has set its goal to take away equipment and cargo that may be necessary for Lunar and Mars missions, and to carry crews and crews of up to 100 people in the future on space journeys.

SpaceX continues its trials

Elon Musk's Firm continues its work to develop numerous prototypes at its Boca Chica facilities. The company, which previously produced the Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy rockets, had made these vehicles reusable. Starship will have a similar feature.

Musk's goal is to reduce the cost of second and subsequent flights to only the cost of fuel thanks to reusable rockets. In a statement on Starship, Musk said the process needed to accelerate dramatically and urgently. Orbital testing of the vehicle is not expected to begin before 2021.
