The tip header tank is the oxygen header tank, and it appears to have worked just fine because the engines had enough oxygen to oxidize themselves. The methane header tank is attached to the common dome between the main methane and oxygen tanks.

I’m not sure that’s right. In my experience the main ballast element of the reverse header flotation valve would commonly only operate effectively if both pressure valves were operating concurrently, and not in a proparative sequence, as has been highlighted in this manoeuvre.

@smallstars I really enjoyed your oration of this flight juxtaposed with the beautiful camera work. Not insanely technical although I enjoy a high level of technical adeptness but it made this video like a very smooth, well made craft beer: Goes down wonderfully leaving you wanting more. Subscribing which I almost always refrain from until I am drawn in by the channel for a while. I.E. you pull me back for more and more. Best of luck with this channel!

I watched the Vids of this and the No9 Crashed tests and thought.......................... Certifications and permissions and Site so close to residences, unprotected assests & future projects? ! "Just like a skydiver?!"..nope Dynamics are very different and more like that of a Eurofighter or Grippen configuration of cannards and stabilaters. "Landing gracefully like a cat" and me thinks "No, a cat swings its tail and bodywieght around twisting its spine to land on its feet" (and lands successfuly, most times). This rocket couldnt do that. The top is frozen because its cold! (atlitude & increased velocity of air flow) or because there is a header tank in there? Mm? No de-iceing it will ice over albeit at a increased rate. If there is a Oxy or Methane tank would be double skinned & vacumed, at least. And then im hearing there is a problem with fuel pressure and fuel getting to the engines/ motors (at right pressure/ quantity) as can be expected. Yet this is a very common problem which has been successfuly dealth with in military avaition for decades. Fuel Cells/ Comparments, Bags, Pumps or Pressure (whether from Eng or/ and Gas). And then im hearing about protective tiling and blankets in the engine bays and given the value of the project and assests I ask; Are you serious in saying that a suitable material and fixing is not in place?! And then I ask isnt that what "computer generated modelling" was supposed to prevent, in part. Expensive failures whether thats in test phases or operational. Including engine tests at all possible configurations. I thought; would be good if the vids had some dials/ data and info to see what was happening. So the data wil be useful... hoorah! But wouldnt it be useful if they still had the rocket in one piece? Didnt have to clear the crash site? Explain to gov, FAA, residences and others what happened or have the project open to Safety Investigation. Then I asked; What is this project for? It will be pretty good when it works! Can I take a ride? Then I thought. IM dumb & BEAM ME UP SCOTTY.

Rufus C

It would take more fuel to do so, the whole time the vehicle is belly-flopping it is staying at a relatively slow speed. If you begin the landing flip maneuver sooner, the engines would need to do more work as you would start speeding up again. As we see here, starting the maneuver sooner wouldn't have helped as it failed due to a loss of header tank pressure, which means that even if they did the maneuver sooner, the same thing would have happened. Even without header tank pressure issues, you wouldn't want to burn for longer because more fuel means less potential payload mass.

Will it reorient itself in space before descending down? At least then the orientation will be taken care of and you just have to worry about the landing burn.
Rufus C
Rufus C Pirms 28 dienām
Well, it depends where you are trying to land it. If where you are trying to land has an atmosphere like Mars or here on Earth, Starship would need to belly-flop as it would slow it down a significant amount and means that you don't need as much fuel as the engines aren't doing all the work. However, if you are trying to land on the moon (which has no atmosphere) you wouldn't need to do the belly-flop maneuver as it wouldn't do anything. This being said you would still be pointing retrograde while falling to slow down horizontally, but even that isn't as extreme as the belly-flop.

It has flappy flaps that serve the same purpose, but also allow the vehicle to have much better control over itself, and the real kicker? Unlike parachutes, the flaps are rapidly reusable, just like the wings of an airplane!! 👌🏼

Question could should Elon develop carbon catching systems from the air. If yes what uses could Elon use this carbon for. Could he use it in batteries, solar cells or making stainless steel for his rockets and cyber truck etc. What other use do you know or think Elon could use this carbon that is captured from air. Let me know. Could he find a really good use for this material. Also do you think he should build these carbon plants at his factories to of set his carbon footprint. He could start a trend that large manufacturers have to do this. I bet he could get government grants for this

Riiiiight.... there was an active fire onboard after the first flame out which burned wiring that you can see falling off. The idiotic cryogenic system being employed was the second likely contributor to the explosion. The system is so counter intuitive and backward without a working model even ready, Meanwhile Nasa and Blue origin have already tested their versions with working module delivery and no explosions. SpaceX has a crew uber for ISS and self landing rockets that existed 30 years ago. woopty doo.

I understand that the header tank, Lost pressure, or the pressure was too low, in the header tank, I was thinking that there’s an easy fix something a kin to a A spring loaded, or pressure, loaded accumulator as a tank. It’s a simple fix for a pressure problem and the fuel is always under constant pressure for the most part.

NSAS had done many similar experiments, although at different levels limited by the computer and material technology at its time.

Sorry guys but this is failure. Guaranteed safe landing is the most important part. Otherwise trip to Mars (or 12 miles up) is worthless. Would one travel in a bus with no brakes? Of course Musk is officially happy with other less important achievements, like guidance. Unfortunately we already have guidance technology able to pinpoint crashing site accurately (missiles). After all it's business with investors and liabilities. Still long long way too go.
