Musk emphasizes progress in Starship production over testing

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, space travel

WASHINGTON — SpaceX Chief Executive Elon Musk said the company is making “good progress” on its next-generation Starship launch vehicle despite delays in the schedule of test flights of the vehicle.

In an interview broadcast during the Humans to Mars Summit by the advocacy group Explore Mars Aug. 31, Musk emphasized the progress the company has made not on test flights of the vehicle but instead development of production facilities for Starship at Boca Chica, Texas.

“We’re making good progress. The thing that we’re really making progress on with Starship is the production system,” he said, referring to the growing campus at Boca Chica. “A year ago there was almost nothing there and now we’ve got quite a lot of production capability.”

Starship SN6 prepares for hop — Super Heavy is coming

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, space travel

Starship SN6 is aiming to conduct a 150-meter hop test on Sunday, just a few weeks after SN5 completed the first Starship prototype launch. SN6’s test will be a near-mirror of SN5’s short flight, with both prototypes aiming to refine SpaceX’s launch and landing operations. Meanwhile, additional Starships continue to evolve, along with preparations for the Super Heavy booster, which – according to Chief Designer Elon Musk – could conduct an initial test hop by October.

SN5 and SN6:

Featured Image Source: SpaceX

SpaceX was founded with the goal to create a spacefaring civilization. The aerospace company is actively developing technologies that will enable humans to travel to Earth orbit, the moon, and Mars. In May, SpaceX conducted its first crewed voyage to space. A Falcon 9 rocket propelled a pair of NASA astronauts aboard the Crew Dragon spacecraft on a journey to the International Space Station (ISS). After a two-month stay at the station, the astronauts returned aboard Dragon; It crossed Earth’s rough atmosphere and conducted a parachute-assisted splashdown in the ocean. The successful mission marked the beginning of a new era in American human spaceflight. SpaceX demonstrated its spacecraft and rocket are reliable to safely carry out crewed missions to space.
