Starship | SN11 | High-Altitude Flight Test

As early as Tuesday, March 30, the SpaceX team will attempt a high-altitude flight test of Starship serial number 11 (SN11) - our fourth high-altitude flight test of a Starship prototype from Starbase in Texas. Similar to previous high-altitude flight tests of Starship, SN11 will be powered through ascent by three Raptor engines, each shutting down in sequence prior to the vehicle reaching apogee - approximately 10 km in altitude. SN11 will perform a propellant transition to the internal header tanks, which hold landing propellant, before reorienting itself for reentry and a controlled aerodynamic descent.

The Starship prototype will descend under active aerodynamic control, accomplished by independent movement of two forward and two aft flaps on the vehicle. All four flaps are actuated by an onboard flight computer to control Starship’s attitude during flight and enable precise landing at the intended location. SN11’s Raptor engines will then reignite as the vehicle attempts a landing flip maneuver immediately before touching down on the landing pad adjacent to the launch mount.
A controlled aerodynamic descent with body flaps and vertical landing capability, combined with in-space refilling, are critical to landing Starship at destinations across the solar system where prepared surfaces or runways do not exist, and returning to Earth. This capability will enable a fully reusable transportation system designed to carry both crew and cargo on long-duration, interplanetary flights and help humanity return to the Moon, and travel to Mars and beyond.
Given the dynamic schedule of development testing, stay tuned to our social media channels for updates as we move toward SpaceX’s fourth high-altitude flight test of Starship!

    #SpaceX Why don't you use the same system for landing as you do with your Falcon rockets and your intended main Starship booster? It works!

    • Lmao.
      Lmao.

      Starship in particular will be coming from orbital speeds, both on earth and mars and going into a belly flop burns off a lot more speed than descending like the falcon 9 and the first stage. It also has more maneuverability at said angle with its fins. The landing system coming out of that belly flop needs to be able to land in rough terrain and landing like a rocket is much easier than landing like a plane. It also makes it easier to take off again.

    There is a better way to land StarShip and the heavy booster. If the landing pad was made out of a metal grid of sorts and raised 50+ feet into the air, when a space craft comes in for a landing the pad drops as the craft touches down. The pad then does all the breaking so no major legs are needed to cushion the landing. This is a much safer way to land. The drop and break landing pad absorbs all the energy. It can be made very low tech so as not to fail. Come on we can do this!

    I,m not an engineer but as I've seen the lift and landing, in case of landing maneuver it seems to have huge momentum that the engines can't harmonize the huge momentum to the required landing momentum or speed. Perhaps it may need more time as that landing maneuver must start from a reasonably high distance to enable the engines to harmonize the huge momentum, parachuting may be needed to reduce the great pressure created by engines abruptly to absorb the kinetic energy , in turn may lead to destroying the ship.

    too bad there's no space programs anymore even space movies goes out in touch with realities because we keep changing display technologies, what is space missions without displays.

    Man will go mars no earlier than 2040. Even a small cybertruck takes years to be released to public, I can't imagine how long it will take starship to meet all the requirements. Probably decades. The news says we will see Man on mars very soon, just to keep us high expectations, but I think it's just marketing. I'm just being realistic.

    I'm sure you get a lot of ideas submitted like this and maybe its even annoying, but here goes another. Does SpaceX plan to develop any kind of need or capacity for in flight EVAs for things like repairs, inspections, upgrades, rescues, etc,? During an ISS EVA Chris Hadfield got something in his eye, a flake of soap I think. It completely incapacitated him and put him in significant peril for awhile. It seems silly that such a small thing created such a big problem for a highly trained astronaut in an expensive high tech suit! In an ordinary work environment a person, even weightless, would just wipe the crap out their eye with a finger, no problemo. It's kind of a big flaw in these high tech conventional space suits that their design robs the astronauts of a capacity for such simple basic human actions. I started thinking of a way to fix this. I came up with the idea of a skiffsuit. A skiffsuit would be a small spacecraft, skiff, with capacity to maneuver in orbit or in flight to Mars. It would be big enough to support 2 astronauts for a day or two. About the size of a Chevy van. It would have the upper half of a spacesuit on the end of a tubular cherry picker or space arm extension. Astronauts would crawl into the tube to put their upper body into the space suit end with some footholds in the tube. The space arm tube could then be maneuvered into position by the astronaut to do repair, upgrade, inspection work by the astronaut. The skiff would have an automated station keeping that would counter any forces the astronaut has to apply to the work. The skiff, space arm and suit would all be one continuous pressurized volume. If an astronaut got something in their eye, got a bad cramp or whatever they could just crawl back into the bigger volume of the skiff to fix it. They could also easily crawl back into the skiff to take a break, eat, rest, use the toilet, whatever to satisfy basic personal needs. Astronauts could safely, comfortably and easily conduct EVA work for days in the skiff. I got the idea watching power grid workers working on transmission lines from cherry picker trucks. I noticed they never used their lower bodies other than just to stand in the buckets. They did complicated and precise work to a high standard with just their upper bodies.

    What if you didn't use wings and instead use the magnus effect to slow the speed. The rocket is put on its side and then rotated by the cold gas thrusters. in the end the rotation is stopped because it ran out of rotational energie or by the thruster (maybe even main thruster, they have to be reignited anyway). Benefits of this system would be safed weight by not needing the flaps, when reentering the side that is on the top at a given moment can cool down (would need heatshield all around but way thinner. Also the consequential horizontal movement that is introduced by the magnus effect could help bring starship back to the site.

    Hm! I think a comprehensive structural analysis of the materials to build the engines, pipes and tanks is in order. Possible defective materials, construction debris perhaps but not likely as that should show up during static firing. Although I think those static tests are too short, and not enough lengthy refireing. After all,, that's where the problem is coming from. Are you using identical SN Tanks during your tests instead of direct feed of fuel?

      SpaceX are a private company, and Elon owns 78% of the voting shares, thus giving him a supermajority. So the only shareholder he is beholden to is himself. He can do whatever he wants and the people holding the other 22% have no say in the matter. They knew what they were signing up for when they bought in, yet did so anyway, so clearly they feel they're getting a good deal. I for one would take that deal. When Starlink goes wide it's going to print $$$, regardless of Elon's antics.

      If for example Nasa was shutdown, I can almost definitely say that the money would only be put into more military/government stuff. It wouldn't really help anyone and if it does it's only short term while space exploration is long term for all humans. What I'm trying to say is in a perfect world the money would go to charity and stuff like that but in reality It would only be used to buy more army shit and nothing long term.

    Looks like the second engine was in some kind of distress on the ascent. At around 6:11 you can see a small fire break out on the right side of the engine. The plume colour was also a bit yellow-ish, I think this is suggestive of too much oxidiser (or fuel?), maybe there was a leaky pipe or something wrong with the turbo-pump. Perhaps this engine exploded on the landing burn, or the pipe ruptured and blew the tank.
