Starship | SN8 | High-Altitude Flight Test

On Wednesday, December 9, Starship serial number 8 (SN8) lifted off from our Cameron County launch pad and successfully ascended, transitioned propellant, and performed its landing flip maneuver with precise flap control to reach its landing point. Low pressure in the fuel header tank during the landing burn led to high touchdown velocity resulting in a hard (and exciting!) landing.
Thank you to all the locals supporting our efforts in Cameron County and beyond. Congratulations to the entire Starship and SpaceX teams on today’s test! Serial number 9 (SN9) is up next - Mars, here we come!

@Matty Yeah, I was waiting for that so I could send it to my friends and family, instead of having to direct them to a specific point in a 2 hour livestream. I have no idea why it took SpaceX two weeks to put it together, SN5/SN6/Falcon heavy Test flight, etc all had recaps far sooner.

So, a complete failure. Billions of dollars gone up in smoke. Followed by soft expectation bigotry (awesome test!) Are the nigas gonna riot over this money they coulda claimed in the name of eqwiityyyy?
Samos Pirms 2 dienām
@alexn310 A good explanation, but it's clearly lost on a goober like that. The rabble have come to this channel in droves mainly because it was trending. Otherwise, they'd be watching some garbage from the Paul brothers, watching twerking videos, or meme compilations. They have no real interest in space or space travel. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if he isn't a space denier/flat earther.
alexn310 Pirms 3 dienām
Really more like millions of dollars. This is a compeltely private venture owned by elon musk, he does with his money what he wants. No Taxpayer dollars were lost. Also, this was not a complete failure. They got the data they wanted, quite frankly they didnt even expect it to get to the flipping maneuver. A success.

Guillaume Drolet
Guillaume Drolet Pirms 3 dienām
that made me wonder though, if the low pressure was the problem how come the explosion was so strong at landing. That must've meant there was a good but of fuel left. Makes it seem more like the landing burn should've been done earlier?
Brent Smith
Brent Smith Pirms 3 dienām
Pressure isn't correlated to the amount of fuel. You can have an empty tank with high pressure, or a full tank with low pressure. In this case it was closer to the latter, still plenty of fuel in the tanks, but not enough pressure to properly feed it to the engines. Starting the landing burn sooner wouldn't have helped, the engines would have just cut sooner and higher, making it hit the ground harder.
Josh B
Josh B Pirms 3 dienām
If they only flipped sooner they would land perfectly. I don't understand why they couldn't figure out the right time to flip. Obviously it's very complicated but the math is simple. They know how much thrust the engines provide, that can be measured on take off. They know how much fuel is used and the reduced weight of the vehicle. They know the altitude and vertical velocity. With today's new and fast computers, this kind of failure should not happen. If it was the 60's or 70's... ok.
alexn310 Pirms 3 dienām
@Josh BHaha yes, really was only a matter of fuel not getting to the engines. They've fixed the problem and the next prototype (SN9) could be flying as soon as Friday. Bust most likely in the coming weeks or so.
Josh B
Josh B Pirms 3 dienām
@alexn310 Thank you for that explanation. Sorry, I should have read the description more clearly. I see, so had the engines been working and not starved of fuel, the timing would have been perfect. Could have happened to anyone, in fact, just a few years ago, I ran out of gas on the side of the road (nowhere near as amazing as this rocket!).
alexn310 Pirms 3 dienām
Thats because the problem wasnt in them "not flipping sooner" but the problem was with the engines not getting enough fuel. Too low pressure in the header tanks which hold the fuel used for landing, starved the engines of fuel therefore cutting one engine off completely and causing the exhaust of the other to turn green, which is caused by the engine literally disintegrating itself.
thought police, get down!
Even when this starts being a reliable way to land, I have to imagine it will be one of the scariest experiences in many peoples lives

@Network Engineer The purpose was to see if the vehicle could actually “fly” like this. Nothing has ever attempted this before so it’s kind of hard to tell if it would actually work. The entire purpose of this test was to gather data which they did successfully. No one expected the test to go nearly this well.

Brent Smith
Brent Smith Pirms 10 dienām
It wasn't supposed to. The ship only needs one engine to land; it starts two and runs them each at half power to give it better control and redundancy. The problem was that there wasn't enough fuel pressure, which caused both engines to fail. If the third engine had started it would have had the same problem.
