10 km Flight
10 km Flight
Type: Test Flight
The SN15 Starship prototype will perform a test flight similar to SN8 to SN11. It will launch up to an altitude of 10 km or 33,000 ft and do a belly flop maneuver followed by a controlled descent to the landing pad.
The trajectory is unavailable. Check back for updates.
Launch Pad A
SpaceX Space Launch Facility, TX, USA
9 rockets have launched from SpaceX Space Launch Facility, TX, USA.
Starship Prototype – SpaceX
- Family: Starship
- Length: 50 m
- Diameter: 9 m
- Launch Mass: 45 T
The Starship Prototype was manufactured by SpaceX with the first launch on 2019-07-26. Starship Prototype has 6 successful launches and 3 failed launches with a total of 9 launches. Prototype of SpaceX’s Starship, a fully reusable second stage and space vehicle.
Starship SN15 successfully landed back at the launch site after its high-altitude flight.
SpaceX Starship Landing Pad – LZ
This is the landing pad used for early Starship development flights.
Return to Launch Site – RTLS
A return to launch site usually means that after stage separation the booster flips and does a burn back towards the launch site, landing near where it initially launched from.

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.
Let’s stick the landing this time.
Or… at least not launch in fog so we can see the Earth Shattering Kaboom.
TBH, I liked the fireworks display ????????
Done and dusted , next.!….the moon and Mars.
don’t launch like the SN8, SN9, and SN11
Actually don’t like the SN10 too it exploded 8 minutes later after landing.
No human (or system) is perfect or 100% reliable all the time. That is how things are.
… ok then watch the SN8, SN9, SN11 it all failed to landing
somtimes thing go wrong too
15 is a lucky number SpaceX , let’s do it for Mike Collins , the Apollo 11 command module pilot.
Great work SpaceX , you did it. This ones for you Mike Collins and the spirt of the Apollo Program.
Noooo it got delayed again 🙁
Official Scrub today from BocaChicaGal
Why so many scrubs for SN15?
That is the nature of test launches.
Because it wanted to look nice and shiny for it’s real test launch ????????????
no, they depend on weather for a good launch :/
