According to foreign media reports, Elon Musk has shared some details about the future testing of the starship, which SpaceX is currently developing at Boca Chica base in Texas. Recently, SpaceX has completed a 150 meter test flight through the Starship prototypes SN5 and SN6. According to musk, the prototype SN8 will be completed in about a week, and its ultimate goal is to launch at a higher altitude. < p > < p > SpaceX’s prototype for flight and landing for its “short jump” test has been built to full size, but only the dome cone at the top is deployed with simulated weight. SN5 and SN6 are often compared to grain silos, and their nose cones lack large control flaps for flight control. But according to musk, SN8 will have both. < p > < p > it is reported that SN8 will also undergo the same early test, static ignition and other ground inspection preparatory work, followed by another static ignition test before the final attempt to fly to 60000 feet above sea level and return to the ground to complete controlled landing. < / P > < p > compared with Musk’s earliest and most optimistic prediction, SpaceX’s progress in starship development is not smooth, but the CEO is optimistic about the time frame.
