Recently, Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX, recently revealed some information about the prototype SN8 of the Starship. It is reported that the prototype of the SN8 starship will be completed in “a week” and will fly at high altitude. As in the previous version, it includes a static ignition and other ground tests, followed by a second static ignition, and finally an attempt to fly to 60000 feet (about 20km), and then return to the ground for flight control landing. < / P > < p > “flying at 60000 feet will be the first of all starship prototypes tested.” Elon Musk said the SN8 would be the first new stainless steel prototype to take off, which would actually look like the final design of a starship, with a top nose cone and aerodynamic wings. < / P > < p > according to a document SpaceX recently submitted to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the company hopes to conduct a test flight sometime after October 11. If the SN8 passes the pre flight preparation, we will soon see the first full-scale spacecraft conduct high altitude test flight. Foreign media believe that if the SN8 flight test is successful, mankind will be one step closer to the dream of space tourism. Privacy Policy
