Elon Musk Shares ‘Gateway to Mars’ After SpaceX Starship Test Flight

SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk just shares “gateway to Mars” after the test. In this test, a Starship rocket explodes and can’t land on the earth.

Before Wednesday, Musk tweet about SpaceX’s Starship test rocket flight. He says, “Mars, here we come!!” but this can’t happen for now. They recently launched the SpaceX live stream says it’s targeting a launch time of 5:40 PM ET. According to that, if everything goes well then we could see Starship SN8 fly to an altitude of 12.5 km (41,000 feet) and attempt a record-setting “landing flip maneuver” on its way back to the base in Boca Chica, Texas. However, the Starship landing and crashed in a fireball at touchdown.

For this explosion, Elon Musk also posted a tweet and wrote:

“Successful ascent, the switchover to header tanks and precise flap control to the landing point. Fuel header tank pressure was low during landing burn, causing touchdown velocity to be high & RUD, but we got all the data we needed! Congrats SpaceX team hell yeah!!”

He also focuses on the next version of Starship will be able to carry up to 100 people to Mars probably as early as 2024.

Musk also tweeted: “Thank you, South Texas for your support! This is the gateway to Mars.”

In addition to that, the press statement on the SpaceX website:

“Thank you to all the locals supporting our efforts in Cameron County and beyond. Congratulations to the Starship and SpaceX teams on today’s test! Serial number 9 (SN9) is up next—Mars, here we come!”

And, this SpaceX’s Starship spacecraft and Super Heavy rocket (collectively referred to as Starship) represent a fully reusable transportation system designed to carry both crew and cargo to Earth orbit, the Moon, Mars, and beyond. Starship will be the world’s most powerful launch vehicle ever developed, with the ability to carry in excess of 100 metric tonnes to Earth orbit.
