STARSHIP prototype is the crewed and reusable spacecraft designed by Elon Musk in the United States. It is being designed so as to be capable of re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere from orbital velocity and landing vertically, with the major goal of rapid reusing. This starship will eventually be built in at least three operational versions i.e a) spaceship, b) tanker and c) satellite delivery spacecraft. Both the teams at Texas and Florida are working on it independently as a sense of internal competition. This will also show the potential of combined progress that wouldn’t have been possible without coordination and teamwork.
The CEO ELON MUSK of SPACE X also believes that both the Starship Prototype Rockets being developed by Private Company will fly in 2 to 3 months. It will be a very short and aggressive time period when one the star hopper just missed its target demonstration last week. Initially this month after all research, Musk posted on Twitter that the incident was happened due to “posttest fuel leak” which resulted in a large fireball but luckily no major damage has been caused to sub-scale star hopper itself. Later on, the CEO of SPACE X also updated new dates for the untethered test, which can happen any day in the upcoming week. This starship is intended to become the mainline SPACE X of orbital vehicle.
Musk also said that there is some orbital test left to be done. Exactly after “2 to 3 months” of those orbital tests, the starship would launch. That means from now after 4 to 6 months the Starship Prototype might get ready to launch. Musk also shared the details of laughing Starship by saying it is built off-site in steel subsection that will be attached to the other side from the tower which is currently under construction to another site.
