Elon Musk's company has lost another prototype of the Starship launch vehicle

The test phase of the Starship reusable launch vehicle developed by Elon Musk ended in failure. Today, SpaceX's 11th Starship prototype was tested for maneuvering.


The tests reportedly ended in failure. An explosion occurred, which Elon Musk himself associates with a malfunction in one of the engines. In this case, the explosion was recorded during the landing.

The broadcast lasted for about 2,5 minutes, after which the "picture" froze. The device crashed into the launch pad, before going into fast rotation.

Eyewitness accounts:

The rocket first disappeared in a thick fog, and after a while it crashed to almost the same place from which the launch was carried out.

After 2,5 minutes I said that the landing would be, but not the way it was expected.

We are talking about the test center of the Elon Musk company in the town of Boca Chica (Texas).

As noted in SpaceX, the main problem is not only the loss of the apparatus, but also the loss of data that would help to find out what the unsuccessful start was connected with this time.

At the same time, Musk's statement about the problem with the engine is being discussed. It turns out that the company could initially know about the weakest point of the heavy launch vehicle.

This is the fourth loss of a prototype reusable launch vehicle from SpaceX.

      The number of accidents speaks of the complexity of the design and the lack of experience and competencies of the engineers, but Musk goes consistently, the failures only slow down a little, the structures are being finalized, the engineers gain experience - they will finish it over time, nothing is impossible there.
      The capitalist - yes, but I'm a little jealous that he can spend such budgets and, despite the accidents, move steadily forward.

          Where is she in almost 60 years? Can we do it now without spending ten years developing a new rocket?

        Musk goes very adventurous way (albeit quite well-known in big business): namely, a promise incredible prospects already in the very near future! Hence the rapid pace with the launch into the sky of extremely "raw", not "perfect" systems ... Hence the incredible accident rate: it is necessary to attract private investors with fantastic projects!

          Musk is not an automotive engineer or a missile developer, Musk is a marketer and PR specialist, therefore projects with a touch of adventurism and PR have "incredible prospects."
          It is interesting to watch his projects.
          Unfortunately, modern society is extremely forgetful and does not remember the collapse of previous "promising" projects (hyperloop, PowerWall) and happily switch to a new, beautifully presented "promising" project (drawn pictures of a city on Mars, no one really even asks, but what for is it necessary), a little sad for the society, as Pavlov's dogs showed the picture - saliva dripped.

            Maybe because there is simply no alternative to these pictures of a bright cosmic future? Nobody offers people hope for a better future.
            Humanity is tired of seeing progress in yet another super-duper smartphone with 10 cameras (on credit, because the real disposable income of the majority is shrinking). In general, people's lives, especially in the "first world", are not getting better, but they are becoming more expensive. We continue to poke around the Earth to produce a huge amount of bullshit, degrading the quality of the environment. And the reversal of this trend is not visible. Pretty desperate when you think about it.
            Therefore, they cling to the new capitalist messiah, giving the dream of a breakthrough into space. Moreover, he was blinded to the ideal image of someone who achieves success thanks to breakthrough ideas, in which way they have been brainwashed for the past 30 years.

          There are, of course, achievements and considerable ones, but there is also outright adventurism.

Well, try it, if it works out, then I will consider you a genius, but about the NASA budget it's not funny at all, neither Boeing with Lockheed, nor OTK who receive much big money from the NASA budget have not achieved such successes, and now they are frantically chasing a mask and are forced to restrain his Wishlist, this is the Mask's "genius", he found simpler and cheaper solutions, and broke the stereotypes that everything cosmic must be cosmically expensive, and that space is difficult, but not gods burn pots, and now a handful of new firms are pulling up to the production of launches and k. devices, he stirred up the swamp and gave a magic pendel to himself and the entire space industry, as in general, in the electric vehicle industry, and even if his offices eventually collapse, then he has already done his job, and I earned money for myself, and stirred up the industry, everyone wins, and since most of its investors are not very poor people (and pride in general, ZAO and all investors are exceptionally rich), it does not matter if they are slightly poor they didn't bring the last money there, but Musk created a whole bunch of new high-paying jobs, and redistributed income, in general, well done

            Yes, I'll pay now, because of the genius of Musk, Whom he cheated there is not clear, but the genius is very seriously addicted to funding. Of his projects, only one is profitable.

            It is noteworthy that this is not the first time that the US government has sponsored the work of SpaceX. So, back in 2006, the company became one of the winners of the NASA Commercial Orbital Transportation Services competition and received $ 396 million for the development of a spacecraft for cargo deliveries to the ISS. Subsequently, NASA signed a contract with SpaceX for 12 cargo launches for the ISS for a total of $ 1,6 billion.
            Moreover, SpaceX is currently applying for financial assistance from the state to provide residents of sparsely populated areas of the United States with access to high-speed Internet. In total, the company expects to pay out $ 16 billion over ten years, according to The Wall Street Journal.
            “Of course, it’s not clear that the commercial company SpaceX is directly funded by the US government. In this case, the state is rather the largest customer for missile launches and other tasks. Nevertheless, without such a client, of course, it would be much more difficult for Musk, "said Artyom Deev, head of the analytical department at AMarkets, in an interview with RT.
            Meanwhile, according to the expert, the US authorities provide significant amounts of financial assistance to two other companies of Elon Musk. In 2015, The Los Angeles Times estimated that SpaceX, along with Tesla and SolarCity, received $ 4,9 billion in government subsidies.
            “Musk's companies really develop primarily due to government support, which is expressed in the allocation of grants, tax incentives, assistance in the construction of factories, and loan forgiveness. The government is also actively promoting a policy of tax deductions and refunds to buyers of solar panels and electric vehicles produced by Musk factories. It is obvious that the companies that regularly find themselves on the verge of bankruptcy - Tesla and SolarCity - are kept solely by state subsidies, "added Deev.

              in the above paragraph there is not a word about sponsorship, here we are talking about two contracts, one for the development of the ship, where SpaceX was one of the two winners and received less money than OrbitloTK, but did a better job, and the actual contract for cargo transportation at 150 LAMs per mission , which is also less than the orbital (180), so this is not a subsidy, but an order that was paid upon completion of the work, during the same time the spaces performed about 30 more commercial missions, and not a single orbital,

              and lied again
              this is never help, but again a contract for the performance of work, and the spaces in this tender are not the only ones and there will be 4 winners, and God forbid that at least a third of it will get out of it, but for this third it is necessary to work and provide contracted services, so that this is not help but "salary"

              and even this is not entirely true: although the state is the largest and very important customer, it only accounts for about 30% of their portfolio of orders, at the initial stage, without state orders, the mask might not have been promoted (and the rocket lab was promoted without a state order), but now it is he who is no better for the city (he is the cheapest of the contractors) than they are to him

              And here Deneva already incurred non-local subsidies, allocated subsidies for buyers, not for manufacturers, and affected all manufacturers of panels and electric machines, but they have already ended, Tesla and Solar City have never been on the verge of bankruptcy, these are public companies traded on the stock exchange and submitting quarterly publicly available reports, and funded primarily by contributors and shareholders

                The one behind the Musk decided to privatize NASA. They unloaded the Mask for trillions of dollars of intellectual property, transferred entire huge teams, 100, 200, 300 people each, gave the launch pads for nothing, and so on. They downloaded all these drawings and stuff to him. And he also received a government subsidy. The beneficiary is not Musk at all, but those who, in fact, pass it on to themselves. And Musk was singled out as a genius!

        The capitalist - yes, but I'm a little jealous that he can spend such budgets and, despite the accidents, move steadily forward.

        Musk is raising a lot of funds, and CONSTANTLY shifting deadlines to the right.
        While rolling. But this is for the time being.
        It is interesting that if you go to his website now, you will see an inscription that the twentieth starship will fly to Mars (though you can translate and how it will fly to Mars, which is not quite the same laughing ). Obviously, if the first 11 simply could not successfully jump 10 km and land, then either the development style must be changed or the twentieth maximum will enter orbit.

        Yes, the fuel lines were on fire at the time of takeoff. SN15 apart from other changes, this node will be completely redesigned. There will be no SN12-14 launches.
        The main thing in the current tests was to check the body and fins for the coup. Landing as a bonus.

          What amazes me most of all is how, in principle, it is possible to assemble - even a MODEL, but a priori, an aircraft subjected to non-acidic loads - in the desert, under the open sky, with a sledgehammer? !!! You will excuse me, but this fence near the house can be used to cook a shikos-nakos, and when the welded seams at the hull stick out at random, they also stick out almost a meter - it's fortunate that right after filling the tanks in the trash, it didn't fly apart.

They understood that the test would end in a "quick unscheduled debriefing." We launched it because we could, we will not be superfluous one more test, there is nothing very expensive there. The prototype is a too loud name for this SN series, rather a flying mock-up.

      But Musk, apparently, considered that full-scale testing of prototypes gave advantages over bench tests. The main one is the speed of the project implementation. Therefore, prototypes were stamped, in fact, without looking back at the results of previous starts.

    Remember this post ...
    Musk is dizzy with success. Ivan was carried away. Starship is an unrealizable adventure. Which no one would ever have believed if it weren't for Musk. To try to make a reusable ship from household stainless steel, with a share of PN almost like disposable high-tech rockets, and even in a short time .. Of course, he got the Falcon. But Falcon is a project of a completely different technical novelty and risk. In fact, this is a rather primitive rocket with only two features: 1) the first stage being returned; 2) low cost (due to the optimization of processes in a private company). Starship, on the other hand, looks fantastic from a technological point of view (not in the best sense of the word). Moreover, even general technical solutions are constantly changing. Then it had just double walls made of stainless steel, then with active cooling, now with ordinary ceramics a la shuttle (which, by the way, makes the entry into the atmosphere "on the belly" noticeably meaningless). That was a 3mm wall, then 2.5, then already 4. The number of engines, the shape of the rudders, the scheme of supports are changing. And all this on the go, in a matter of months. This is not a project, but a gamble. Even if he ever takes off and lands, there is no guarantee that this success will be repeated on the next flight. And this despite the fact that the current tests are 0.1% of the complexity of the entire program. Throwing up and even planting a stainless tank, even with an overturn, was always possible, and without the Mask. But to force this product to return from orbit ... Moreover, to bring a payload there, with all the design features ... Most of all, it is surprising that there is nothing fundamentally new and unattainable in technologies for the last 40-50 years. Stainless steel tanks - even under von Brown they could have made, the engines of a closed cylinder were made by Glushko (although not on methane), landing in automatic mode with a coup is also possible for 40-50 years (although this is the most innovative moment). Or all other missile designers, since the 70s and 80s, since they could not come up with such simple solutions (apparently Musk thinks so). Or the adventurer and Musk himself.
    At the same time, I would not relax on the spot spaxeX. Many competitors are breathing in the back, the most important of which is Bezos's Blue Origin. Quietly and without noise, they finish their New Glenn, which, if the Starship fails, will bury all the Falcons. In terms of level, this rocket is between Falcon Heavy and Starship. But, unlike Starship, it is real, not fantastic. Methane engines, reusable first stage, hydrogen second, LEO PN 45 tons per reusable option ... When it takes off - kirdyk spaceix. It was planned to launch this year, but the date was postponed to the end of the 22nd. And the mask will be too late to take up the mind and make a real project - the market will be busy. I think the period of Musk's victories will end soon, at least in space he will lose, which will be a strong blow to his reputation. And on the reputation of a genius, other projects are held by him.

In fact, a private trader will not pay a salary to a highly qualified specialist without a guaranteed order of his products, and there is no need for decades, a short-term break is enough and employees need to be recruited and trained from scratch!
    This is what we observe, instead of bench-top driving of the engines to the state of guaranteed working off of the first stage in a trouble-free mode, a convulsive experimental driving of the rocket. The question is which will end earlier, the budget allocated to Musk or the time it takes for competitors to get around it.

      ... "The question is what will end earlier, the budget allocated to Musk or the time it takes for competitors to get around it" - If Musk's Starship creates with his own funds and funds of investors - NASA and the State Department and the Senate do not allocate a cent to him for this project, and we can already say for sure that no country in the world at the moment is creating a super-heavy reusable interplanetary transport system like Starship, so there is simply no one to bypass it, and in the next 20 years they will hardly appear in this direction of rocketry.

    I put a candle before each test so that the Lord would not allow this Satanist to succeed.
    There will be no way for him either to the Moon or to Mars, and there, with Gd's help, we will fly, they will become Russians.

      Unfortunately, there is no point in hoping for this - all the previous ones fly and land and after a while the project will fly and land, but his team will definitely cope with all the problems. chickens do not bite him, and billionaires from other countries are financially financing the project - until 2030 the Starship will definitely be ready and will fly. And yes, no one else in the world is involved in such a project, including Russia.

          And what this photo shows - there are engine launches, there is only a problem with landing, they need to create a full-scale stand to practice flipping the rocket and turning on the engines in order to understand what is wrong and what needs to be done their only problem with Starship is landing and over time they will solve it.

            The landing of the step is not the main problem there.

      So it turns out that it exploded in the air at an altitude of 900 meters just at the moment the engines were turned on, most likely it burst the tank.

    This is quite typical for testing. It is the flaws that come to light, we can say that the explosion is part of the normal work process. In any case, it is better to let it explode on a range, far from housing and in controlled conditions, than with a crew on board.

    Critics of the Starship program do not take into account one important, more precisely, its most important feature: Starship is not a means of delivering any payload into orbit or deep space - it is its secondary task for the first stage of operation.
    The main role of this system is to become the basis for the beginning of the expansion to Mars.
    It is planned to build literally thousands of such ships - that is why cheap stainless steel is used, which is why the ship, even by modern standards, is extremely simplified constructively.
    We need an extremely low cost, the ability to manufacture in quantities, by the standards of ordinary astronautics, insane.
    It makes no sense to draw parallels with conventional media - "this is different."
    The best analogy is the Liberty transports. "Starship" - "Liberty" of the XXI century.
    Regarding accidents - remember R-7: out of 30 test launches, 9 are emergency.
    "Starship" - the first step towards space exploration
