SpaceX fire tests Starship SN8 with three engines

The American company SpaceX continues to test the Starship prototype. Reportedly, the next Starship SN8 prototype has successfully passed firing tests with three Raptor engines running. The broadcast was conducted on the NASASpaceflight YouTube channel.


The next Starship SN8 prototype was tested with three engines installed, in contrast to the previous ones, on which only one engine was installed. Two full-size prototypes Starship SN5 and SN6 with one engine have already taken off into the sky, now Elon Musk plans to make a test flight of SN8 at an altitude of 20 km. He announced this before the tests, promising, if successful, to send the prototype into flight after another firing test.

It is noted that the nose and aerodynamic rudders were made for the SN8, but they were not installed before the fire tests passed. Most likely they will be installed before the prototype test flight, which is to take place before the end of 2020.


Earlier, Elon Musk said that he is planning the first test flight in low-earth orbit of the Starship spacecraft in 2021.

In the final version, Starship will have a height of almost 50 meters, and its mass with a full load of fuel is 1400 tons. Equipped with 37 Raptor engines, it will be able to launch up to 150 tons of load into orbit or transport up to 100 people.

The Starship spacecraft is set to become the largest and most cargo-carrying manned spacecraft in stories. The main purpose of this ship is to deliver colonists to the moon and Mars. In the Starship Super Heavy version, it will be more powerful and heavier than the NASA Saturn V rocket, which delivered the Apollo astronauts to the moon.

The company planned to start commercial flights on Starship in the 2022 year.

    something I got confused in the light of recent articles and posts under them. the tug from the Republic of Kazakhstan drank the budget. a ship for delivering colonists to the Moon and Mars from Musk is the technology of the future. did I understand correctly?

              Starlink is not made for the military. Vopnnye already tested Starlink, they liked it and ordered Lockheed to make them their own Starlink.
              If Lockheed crumples, then after 3 years they can buy services from Musk

            Why only with Vaz? we have many car factories. why not a BMW or a Mercedes or a Hyundai? The vaz belongs to Renault. By the way, VAZ cars are delivered to a lot. even in 404 they began to produce. maybe you will look for a start.

      The ship can be seen in the video .. and the dates "2021" are somehow not from the category about the padishah and the donkey .. Well, the previous "saws" Mask are still being implemented .. Teslas are already walking up to 1000 km, Starlink is being launched, a new trampoline is delivered Americans working on the ISS ..
      But about our tugs ... really - one numerous articles ..

        let's be honest. Musk endured a lot of things by date. The boy gave his word, the boy took the floor. parts of the tug can also be seen in the iron. and?
        What is the net profit from Tesla for the last five years? The new trampoline works, but not what it promised. were there no US citizens in the last crew from the RK?

          Transferred .. it is easy for someone ..
          The tug parts are very cool ..
          I was not interested in profit.
          The US citizens were .. but so what .. The trampoline works !! What are the difficulties, I did not delve into it .. but I personally have no doubts that they are moving forward ..

          Shl .. let's be honest - compare the already carried out delivery of astronauts to the ISS with parts from the tug .. So-so idea ..

            what prevents to transfer again?
            so the Mask does not have a ship yet, but only a part.
            take an interest. maybe the saws of the Mask will remain saws in your mind.
            read what Musk promised, and what flew. it is generally surprising that the United States did not have its own trampoline for a long time. that's what is surprising, and not what appeared.
            What does the delivery of astronauts to the ISS have to do with it? RK has been doing this since the very beginning of the ISS. Or is there already a rocket in the hardware that will take the astronauts to the Moon or Mars?

              Nothing interferes .. there will be a need - they will postpone and more ..
              Nevertheless - "2021" is somehow not from the category of a padishah and a donkey ..
              Well, the previous "saws" of the Mask are still being implemented .. Teslas are already walking up to 1000 km, Starlink is being launched, a new trampoline for delivering Americans to the ISS is working ..

              Well, the previous "saws" of the Mask are still being implemented .. Teslas are already walking up to 1000 km, Starlink is launched, a new trampoline for delivering Americans to the ISS is working - all this is not in my mind !! This is all already there !!

              read what Musk promised, and what flew.
              Didn't anything fly ?? Just drank ??
              And where is this from ?? - Teslas are already walking up to 1000 km, Starlink is being launched, a new trampoline for delivering Americans to the ISS is working ..
              Now, for comparison, you can read Rogozin ..

              the United States did not have its own trampoline for a long time. that's what is surprising, not what appeared.
              The fact that there was no trampoline before is not relevant to the topic .. In those reasons, there is no point in digging ..
              But the fact that he appeared is really not surprising ..
              And when they fly in the starship, there will be nothing surprising either ..
              True, until recently everyone was shouting - "and let it be ****** first" .. but now it is no longer surprising to anyone ..))

              What does the delivery of astronauts to the ISS have to do with it? RK has been doing this since the very beginning of the ISS.

              Despite the fact that this is what the conversation is about !!
              About what was not - and what became !! That they are doing something ..
              For the eleventh time I write:

              Well, the previous "saws" of the Mask are still being implemented .. Teslas are already walking up to 1000 km, Starlink is being launched, a new trampoline for delivering Americans to the ISS is working ..


              And the RK had the opportunity to launch on the ISS from the very beginning .. yes .. and also come up with names for the Federation ..
              This is the whole difference ..
              You wrote about saws - and so I see the results of their saws ..
              And our results are not present !!
              That "RK has been doing this since the very beginning of the ISS." - this is not a result .. This is already the case with us !!

          What are you hanging on to this profit? Tesla is a long-term project. He will not be able to bend. The whole world will ride on electric traction - it's a matter of time. There is also profit. In Skolkovo, Tesla's electric cars have been charged for a long time, several of them, those that are in the Russian Federation, mainly in Moscow. You don’t have to pay Sechin for gasoline, you don’t have to pay taxes on roads. This is a plus. The downside is the battery, which costs almost half the cost of the car.

      2. Chinese rover - technology development. Tianwen-1.
      3. UAE mission - orbital laboratory.

      Roskosmos so far promises to promise. And of course, Musk is a swindler, and Rogozin is the Boh of astronautics.

          "3 missions to Mars are flying right now ..."
          “Something did not grasp the meaning of your post. what did you write this for? "
          To show how NASA works and how to work for the taxpayer's money.
          NASA yesterday, October 20: “NASA's OSIRIS-REx space probe landed briefly on the surface of asteroid Bennu on October 20 to collect material, but it may take several days before project scientists know how much material the probe collected for return to Earth.”
          “During its short stay on the surface, TAGSAM, which looks like a car air filter, released a stream of nitrogen gas that lifted fine material to the surface, trapping this material inside the device. The goal of the mission is to collect at least 60 grams of material, although TAGSAM could collect up to two kilograms. ”
          “However, it will be a few more days before the team can better estimate the amount of collected material they plan to measure by slowly rotating the spacecraft and measuring the difference in its moment of inertia prior to sampling. This should give an estimate of the amount of material collected to within a few tens of grams, ”Lauretta said at a briefing about the sampling attempt in September.”
          “The spacecraft will leave the Bennu neighborhood in March 2021, returning samples to Earth in a container that will land in the Utah desert in September 2023. "

      What are you talking about? The re-equipment of production is underway, new progressive technologies are being introduced, including additive ones, we are starting the production of new carriers of different classes, we are transferring our own spacecraft to domestic components, we are developing and producing new subscriber ground equipment, we are launching new domestic satellites, we are doing scientific research at the space station and we are preparing new large modules for it, went into deep space with a domestic interplanetary platform, we are creating a nuclear reactor for the lunar base and new nuclear electric propulsion ...

          Only today, from the ISS, the cosmonauts and the astronaut were safely lowered to Earth on a domestic spacecraft:



          And in a couple of days we launch such a new navigation satellite:



          This is followed by a series of commercial launches of various spacecraft, including the latest domestic platforms.

            Write some stupid answers, by God ... Empty chatter. Soyuz is a Soviet development, what does Roscosmos have to do with it? Well, at least something breakthrough has Roscosmos done? Just chatter like yours and breakfast.
            Here is a NASA probe took a soil sample from an asteroid at a distance of 334 million kilometers. For Musk, the Falcon carrier has flown for the seventh time, he creates Starlink (ay, Messenger!), He has tested a methane engine ... Or- Bezos. His tourist ship is reusable. And whose rover is crawling on Mars? Ragozinsky? And who took the soil sample from the comet? Certainly not Roscosmos? Roscosmos has a sadness. Their funding was cut. Not enough money for new developments? Is there enough for the construction of a member in the form of a new building for Roscosmos?
            Is this the only breakthrough that Roscosmos can show the country? The rehash of the old Soviet groundwork is, for now, the limit of the capabilities of the Russian cosmonautics. Only very naive people can believe the demagogic spells emanating from Roscosmos and repeat them like a mantra ... It's boring with you. Good luck!

              This year, yes, they are in the process of withdrawing the Starlink satellite constellation. We are in the process of withdrawing the OneWeb grouping - there have already been two launches this year, and one more is planned soon.



              And so Russia has already had 11 successful launches this year.

The center is being funded by the city of Moscow. Unfortunately, more pictures cannot be inserted into one message. But you can check out the construction video:

    It is noted that the nose and aerodynamic rudders were made for the SN8, but they were not installed before the fire tests passed. Most likely they will be installed before the prototype test flight, which is to take place before the end of 2020.
    They did not put it because these steering wheels will immediately burn off. Rocket - props
