SpaceX Starship Hop Test UPDATE, Titan Dragonfly Mission Power Source, SpaceX Orbital Starship
We're relieved that the first true SpaceX Starship hop test is confirmed to be attempted next week. Besides, there're some exciting updates on the Chinese moon program, NASA Orion spacecraft and NASA Dragonfly mission.
SpaceX engineers finally have solved the critical vibration issue which was responsible for the delay of Starship first hop test. Now that the undesirable resonance has been fixed, SN06 raptor engine is being installed into the Starship prototype, Starhopper. The first untethered hover test of Starhopper could be attempted on July 16th in Boca Chica, Texas.
The work on the SpaceX Starship orbital prototype in Florida and Texas, respectively, is progressing rapidly. Hence we expect the overdue Elon Musk Starship presentation taking place soon.
NASA's Orion launch abort system test (LAS) has been a success. Nonetheless, we believe that much more NASA and SpaceX collaboration is needed if NASA wants to return to the Moon by 2024.
China's Longjiang-2 lunar orbiter captured some stunning pictures of a full solar eclipse on Earth from the perspective of the Moon.
We explain that NASA's Dragonfly Titan probe will be powered by a multi-mission radioisotope thermoelectric generator (MMRTG). The Dragonfly drone is expected to spend several years on Titan and we're looking forward to some unique images form this Saturn moon.
We really can't wait to see Starhopper’s first true test flight, and an updated presentation on Starship, Super Heavy as well as SpaceX's Moon and Mars colonization plans. Furthermore, Elon Musk has hinted that 20-km suborbital flight tests with SpaceX orbital Starship prototypes can be expected later this year.
