Launching his moon and Mars rocket to space for the first time has long been on Elon Musk’s to-do list, and now, the world’s richest man is readying his massive Starship for orbit!
The landmark Starship orbital flight will involve Starship 24 and a Super Heavy Booster 7. The company has been testing both vehicles at Starbase over the past month or so, performing static fires and other work.
Currently, SpaceX is focusing on Booster 7 testing.
On Sept. 12, the company just conducted a many-engines Spin Prime test, and a big depress vent on this Super Heavy!
This is one big step closer to the big Static Fire test with a record number of Raptor 2 engines.
SpaceX has 12-hour test windows tentatively scheduled on Sept. 14th and 15th, if Booster 7 and the positions of the stars happen to be in the right mood between 8 am and 8 pm CDT.
While SpaceX is focused on testing the B7, Ship 24 is equally busy!
The private space firm fired up the engines of Ship 24, as part of a static fire test that brings it closer to launching the fully reusable spacecraft to orbit for the first time last Thursday.
SpaceX lit all six Raptor engines on Ship 24 for a few brief moments starting on Thursday, September 8, at 5:30 p.m. EDT at its Starbase South Texas facility.
The engine test, which only lasted a few seconds, also set alight some of the surrounding grassland, causing the fire department to swoop down on the scene as a precautionary measure. The test itself and the fire were captured in a live stream video feed shared by LabPadre.
All thanks to LabPadre for capturing these moments!
Notably, SpaceX recently is upgrading its Mechazilla Chopsticks arms.
Typically, the ship lifting points on the chopsticks have been deployed as you can see here.
On the other hand, SpaceX’s LR 11000 is hooked up to Ship 24, lifting “squid” for the potential lift of Ship 24 off suborbital pad B.
