Integrated Flight Test
Integrated Flight Test
Type: Test Flight
Maiden flight of the two-stage Starship launch vehicle. The booster was supposed to separate 170 seconds into flight and return to land approximately 32 km off the shore in the Gulf of Mexico. The second stage would have followed a suborbital trajectory and performed an unpowered splashdown approximately 100 km off the northwest coast of Kauai (Hawaii). A launch failure was experienced before stage separation.

Space Exploration Technologies Corp., known as SpaceX, is an American aerospace manufacturer and space transport services company headquartered in Hawthorne, California. It was founded in 2002 by entrepreneur Elon Musk with the goal of reducing space transportation costs and enabling the colonization of Mars. SpaceX operates from many pads, on the East Coast of the US they operate from SLC-40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station and historic LC-39A at Kennedy Space Center. They also operate from SLC-4E at Vandenberg Space Force Base, California, usually for polar launches. Another launch site is being developed at Boca Chica, Texas.
History in the making here folks….good luck SpaceX.! ….
FROM THE FOLKS (DOWN UNDER).!
We Aussie are still holding our breath down here Elon ………all systems are go here……..lets ride .!
This will be an epic event that I wish that I could see in person. I just watched the Vandenberg launch that lifted off last night. They are beautiful to see for sure. This rocket is a beast and will be talked about for a long time. So if Elon… Read more »
It will be a Fireworks show either way when It Finally launches.Let’s just hope for a successful fireworks show,If you know what I mean.
Go Starship. This will be something I never thought possible to watch in my lifetime. Coming from the days of black & white tv, keeping up with things is challenging but so welcoming. Just think there may be a way off this planet after all.
Success!! This TOTALLY was not a failure. Three separate persons from SpaceX confirmed and touted this as success. Sure it did not achieve all that they or we could have hoped for, but to label this as a failure on your site is totally false information. You need a new… Read more »
Our data provider selected that status. I would have selected partial failure. Either way, the launch was spectacular.
True, It was indeed spectacular! The beautiful flume from those 33 Raptor engines is SO different from the Diesel Merlin engine crafts. Can’t wait to see you list the next scheduled launch of this futuristic rocket setup. So exciting to live while history is being made.
Cannot wait for the next launch…..BRING IT ON & THE FUTURE.!……
This is the replay of Apollo 13 “the successful failure”
