Comprehensive coverage


Musk found himself trying to please both Ukraine and Russia while trying to prevent escalation. His refusal to provide satellite coverage of a Ukrainian attack on Crimea exposed his dilemma. But Starlink's importance in the war did not diminish
Apparently the thrust of the first stage was not strong enough and the spacecraft was not able to separate from it. This is still an unmanned test flight and it seems that now the manned tests will move away * This is the fourth prototype to crash on launch
According to SpaceX President Gavin Shotwell, the company has already stopped production of Crew Dragon capsules after building its fourth spacecraft scheduled for an April 19, 2022 launch for NASA to the space station.
The SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft entered the atmosphere and autonomously deployed the parachutes. The four passengers intended the flight to collect donations for childhood cancer research
The choice of Spice X is as a sole supplier. Also competing in the tender was a group that included Blue Origin Lockheed Martin and another group led by the Dintics Corporation which was a partner in the Apollo project. The assessment: SpaceX's offer was the cheapest, because Elon Musk has future plans on Mars for which this would be an opportunity to develop technologies
The tenth prototype of the launcher (SN10) with three Raptor engines took off from their launch facility in Boca Chica, Texas to an altitude of about ten kilometers, performed a rollover maneuver and then returned to the launch facility, where it exploded after a few minutes due to a methane leak
About five and a half minutes after the launch, the launcher's engines were ignited in order to move it to a vertical position and then align with the nose up to land on its bottom, however, as it was seen in the broadcast, the launcher overturned when its tip reached the ground at a huge speed and exploded about six and a half minutes after the launch
SN8, a prototype of a spacecraft that is supposed to transport humans to Mars, took off and even circled in the air but did not succeed in the landing phase apparently due to low fuel pressure in the central tank, which caused it to reach the ground at too high a speed. The experiments will continue with the next spacecraft
