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!

    As my own opinion, it is too risky of carrying so much liquid fuel flying back and forth between Earth and Moon. Once it is returning from space and entering Earth’s atmosphere, all crews on board are in huge danger. It also apply to the landing on Moon, without atmosphere like Earth, the landing could be the most spectacular fireworks show on Moon.

    I don't want one soul that belongs to God lost for all eternity. Please reject the forbidden fruit for Covid-19. If anyone recieves the vaccine, they will be seperated from God for all eternity. I warn because I care. Jesus Christ is coming. If you seek Him you will find Him. The Lord looks nothing like the famous pictures. I've seen Him. God is faithful to His promises. Everything written in the book of revelation will be fulfilled. We are at the end.

    #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.

      6 napja

      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!

      @TimePro Yes, I truly believe so. All the mega hard stuff has already be done. Landing a spacecraft on a 100? foot circle for example. Slowing 240 tons down from 5 or 10 mph to zero in 50 feet should not be too hard for SpaceX engineers.

    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.

    Never will understand why you run two engines lean, can't make power without BTUs. Run them fat on the test stand. Flow pressures are different installed in the rocket. Oh well who am I. Should use inline accumulators at the engine in plumbing at the puck.

      I highly doubt they're running the engines lean. You always, always run rocket engines rich. Otherwise they disintegrate.

    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.

      Ok so you’re saying that fog isn’t real. Got it. I’ll remember your comment when I see fog for the next time.

    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.

      Not sure if I completely understand that you're saying, but it would probably have very strong g force's do to the fact that it would be spinning, and it they lost control at all, they couldn't get it back. Still a cool idea tho
