Starship | SN9 | High-Altitude Flight Test

On Tuesday, February 2, Starship serial number 9 (SN9) completed SpaceX’s second high-altitude flight test of a Starship prototype from our site in Cameron County, Texas.

Similar to the high-altitude flight test of Starship serial number 8 (SN8), SN9 was powered through ascent by three Raptor engines, each shutting down in sequence prior to the vehicle reaching apogee - approximately 10 kilometers in altitude. SN9 successfully performed 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 descended 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. During the landing flip maneuver, one of the Raptor engines did not relight and caused SN9 to land at high speed and experience a RUD.

These test flights are all about improving our understanding and development of 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.

    When landing, the ignition is too late to correct. It needs to be 1-2 seconds earlier.The liquid fuel bunker should be divided into many small bunkers. Otherwise, if the whole bunker is turned vertically to horizontal, and then to vertical, the kinetic energy of the liquid itself can heat itself, causing expansion and deflagration

    Oh shut it boomer. You have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about. I’m guessing your vision is pretty messed up, considering you apparently didn’t see the word “TEST” in the title. It’s practically impossible to develop a new, groundbreaking technology without experiencing some failures along the way. How are they supposed to “fix it” without testing it? Do you have any idea how many failures NASA experienced when developing the Saturn V that launched men to the moon? Not the mention that the cost of this entire launch was less than what the US military spends in a single day.

    @Herbert Payson I mean these first flight weren't supposed to land anyways. Their main objective was to analyze aerodynamic features during ascent and descent and succesfully completing the skydiver manouver. It's just a secondary objective to land at this point in the development.
