SpaceX is performing a test flight of Starship SN15. The prototype will aim to be the first Starship vehicle to softly land during a high altitude flight test. Like the previous Starship prototypes, SN15 is expected to fly to approximately 10 kilometers.

Doubt takeoff will break windows with superheavy. However, if superheavy and starsho[ blows up after fueling it will destory the windows. We have proof from the Russians/USSR that windows will break up to 6 miles away from a large rocketing rudding. Only woth full load, if it ruds during landing of either two there isnt enough fuel to break them.

I wonder what the total cost after it’s all said and done whether it goes up or it goes down or whatever it’s going is it really worth the cost I don’t know our taxes paid for most of it would be my guess correct me if I’m wrong and do you think it’s worth the cost waiting for your post be nice I have been.

I still believe that the craft should re-enter and then controlled flight,no different to the shuttle,and then energy at lower speed to perform the VLO characteristic for landing.dead dropping a weight then trying to reduce speed is hard.the sugar gliders,Australian animal,uses a principal to glide,an air break is used when you fly,so I just wish Elon would just give it a go.also,the position of weight....an arrow drops with the "warhead" leading the shaft through flight,so why wouldn't the same principal apply to the craft trying to land in a vertical position?

@Lensflare Deviant Why can’t you disagree civilly? I’ve made no attacks on you. All your vitriol does is stop an exchange of ideas.
Lensflare Deviant
@Mike Kearney You don't need to go faster than light to reach another planet, just to go to other solar systems. You're making a fool of yourself. The sad part is I suspect you don't have the capacity to understand.. or much of anything.
Mike Kearney
Mike Kearney 6 days ago
@Lensflare Deviant Sure there are. The fact that it’s impossible to travel faster than light is a physics proof.
Lensflare Deviant
@Mike Kearney Because it stems from the belief that it's an easy problem to solve and that the small amount of money being spent on this will somehow make the difference with the billions being poured into welfare now. There are no laws of physics that prohibit long space travel. All you've done is prove I was 100% right. You have a very simple understanding of how the world works.
Mike Kearney
Mike Kearney 8 days ago
@Lensflare Deviant Simply take care of the people of this planed instead of firing toys at a rock 90 million miles away. How’s that nonsensical? They call it science FICTION for a reason. You must know that the laws of physics prohibit any long space travel. Even sending astronauts to the nearest planet would be a death sentence.

carbon capture prize? Yeah, this is an old trick practiced by firms who have no idea how to achieve something. They pretend to have a contest with a prize for the community to contribute ideas. Except that the firms keep all the good ideas that have merit for themselves, taking ownership away from the people who came up with the idea, for a poultry prize. That assumes someone actually comes up with a brilliant idea, which they never do. Elon did the same with the hyperloop where he conned University students to try to come up with an idea to make the ridiculous proposal of hyperloop more practical. Which they didn't. There's a serious amount of gullibility going around these days.
Lensflare Deviant
Really? Which other firms have done this? How is asking students for idea's conning them?

Space Planes can have use in limited cases. Low payload, low altitude. They're not capable of being a workhorse for payloads and definitely not heavy lift, not even Electron capability. They're cool, but they're not replacing all of space flight anytime soon

The amount of issues they have launching these ships is going to kill their marketable plans. The ship make take you from point A to point B in 30 minutes but having to wait 3-6-12-24-48 hrs kills the point.
Carl Johan

@Jake Rosendahl Not sure if you replied to the correct person my dude, as you pretty much made my argument here.
Jake Rosendahl
Jake Rosendahl 8 days ago
@Carl Johan Did the falcon have great reusability at first? The success rate was bad for a while, then turnaround times were slow, recovery weather was sensitive with an abundance of caution. They've fixed all that over time, it ain't gonna be absolutely perfect on a prototype no less, this is completely not a fair assessment when it's a TEST and they don't know it's weather capabilities yet or have full reliability and they aren't going to push that until they have the basics down. Imo it's hard to say that starship is "very much intended" for point to point passenger. Like I said, it was an extremely early concept that doesn't actually make any sense. Nobody will pay for it because it's expensive in propellant alone and the launch constraints make it impractical.
Carl Johan
Carl Johan 8 days ago
@Jowey de la Nota Literally everyone says "it's impossible" and they do it anyway. How many times does this pattern need to repeat before people stop saying the same thing? And the current (incomplete) version of starship is OBVIOUSLY not reliable enough for human travel, because it's incomplete. The first airplane to ever fly wasn't suited for daily flights across half the world either, and now we got thousands of planes carrying hundreds of people every single day. And there was a time when human flight was impossible. If something is physically possible to do, it's doable with enough effort. Star lifting is physically possible and achievable in a far future despite being impossible for us to do right now. You are focusing on walls while everyone at SpaceX are focusing on finding ways to climb over the walls, hence why they keep achieving things that everyone else constantly says they can't achieve. This is why saying "it will never work" is downright naive at this point. And what the actual fuck kind of logic is "listing what Space X has been able to accomplish so far is not a scientifical fact"? Yes, it is a fact, because they've done it and it works.
Carl Johan

@Jake Rosendahl It's not being focused on right now, but it very much is one of the intended goals.
Jake Rosendahl
Jake Rosendahl 9 days ago
@Jowey de la Nota "plans" as in marketing materials from years ago never mentioned again or even recently. Seems pretty dropped to me. It was probably thought as a funding method before starlink, and they probably gave it some thought and realized the design does not support this use practically. Costs way too much, has to launch far away from populations, not much demand for that fast of travel, etc
