ABORT: Starship SN9 Static Fire Attempts Aborted

Am 20 Jan 2021 veröffentlicht
SpaceX is conducting a static fire test with Starship SN9 in Boca Chica, Texas. If all goes well, a successful test will clear the way for a test flight in the coming days.

  • notes!

  • Why? 😩

  • US communism

  • 2:01:10 CARR

  • Abort! Abort!

  • Nice good

  • Trending!!!!!

  • Elon Musk is not a dr von Braun and THAT is what’s missing here

  • Sick

    • it looks primitive. doomed to failure

  • quite pog

  • Look at the bird 🕊️ at the top lol

  • Abort! Abort!

  • Trending!!!!!

  • Cape near Florida

  • Guys, is it me or these Raptors engines always have a problem and a fault, all the time there is something wrong with them, why can't they use the merlin engines that the Falcon 9 uses? since apparently these never fail and always work without problems

    • Always? Nonsense. Also the F9 uses a fuel that is not available anywhere but earth and that's counter to their plans to use resources located off earth someday. Rocket engine design is not easy and it will be a work in progress for sometime yet since it's a more complex design.

    • @Persesemi True, but there is two tests going on here - one is the ship itself and its handling abilities and the other is the propulsion system. As we are abundantly aware the present propulsion system (i.e Raptor) is holding back the ship testing schedule, so swap out the Raptors for some proven Merlin(s) engines and perfect that part of the tests. In the meantime those Raptors need to go back to the test shop at McGregor and start to test them "off line" as it were in a mockup SN Skirt 20 feet off the ground.

    • TL;DR Raptor is more efficient engine but is difficult to manufacture. Those failures are expected from the tests. Simply put, you won't learn unless you fail.

  • Bruh 6 hours

  • 2:01:10 CARR

    • @Joon - young dude with kayaks just flooring it xd

    • l don’t think that’s supposed to happen 😂

  • You Guys can keep staring at a piece of steel entertaining for over 6 hours. NASA experts were running out of things to say when SLS was on hold for 30 minutes. NASA take notes!

  • Why? 😩

  • Why can't this be condensed into the main points. 6 hours to find nothing. Well done as always Nasa. Just search for spacex fans instead guys.

    • Bruh this was a livestream

  • The Isle of Skye is NOT in England. It’s in Scotland. You got your best fish n chips in SCOTLAND. Calling something that’s Scottish “English” or “England” is the single most insulting thing you can say to Scots. The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is made up of Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland and England.... 4 countries. England is a part of the uk or Britain. England is not the UK, England is NOT Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. Is the USA called California? Is Miami called California?

  • I think is very frustrating for us, sitting many hours seeing, but it is sure even more frustrating for the technician who is attending to all this....

  • it looks primitive. doomed to failure

  • Thanks for your time and efforts.

  • Keeping the faith and the enthusiasm... As on lookers we know, this is The R&D that is a absolutely necessity to succeed and learn new information... Normally R & D is a lot more tedious then watching this Rocket's aborts... Looked to be rewarded and inspired when this rocket "does flies and lands with out disassembly... " your rhetoric is absolutely perfect and well done for being the "audience" not in the know" of what is actually going on... and sharing this Wonderful process with the world.... Well done!!! Great work guys!

  • How do you know its an abort and not a PID controller self tuning run ?

  • What's the issue??

  • let go to see on ready rocket luck go up sky that good and down to see landing?

    • lets good bad rocket language lucky speak down cannot english

    • ready rocket no fly up when abort good is bad for landing acquisition manager

  • They abort everytime the condensation is dripping down the rocket. Not surprised

  • Any word on what the problem/s is/are yet?

    • Probably because there was a closure violation

    • 🤷‍♂️ Flat battery?

  • 😉

  • 🚀

  • SN9 has had more abortions than the State of California 😂😂

    • More abortions than every Kardashian combined.

  • They should scrap SN9 at this point. Thing seems way too unreliable. Move on to SN10

    • @Steelworks Media For all of my flippant posts earlier, I absolutely agree with you. You're spot-on on all counts. I'm an R&D engineer, but sometimes throw off the shackles and have a giggle, I've had plenty of laughs poked at me over the years. It kinda goes with the territory 😁

    • I think it is good for keeping SN9 and working through the problem. Problems coming up without explosions teaches them the hardware. It is also informative on what works and what doesn't work. It is a prototype for a reason and why they do not formally inform the problic what is going on. NasaSpaceFlight, nothing against them, is just speculating what SpaceX is trying to do.

    • @I Am A Duck🙄 some people just don't get this stuff.......😁😂🤣🤣

    • No way man, she's good as gold. Fresh plugs, fuel filter, air filter, oil change and a wee exorcism, she'll be right as a kite. First time, right on the key....VOOOM! Simples innit.🙄

    • @I Am A Duck not when it coincides with Friday lol

  • Im so glad I dont wait around for 9 hours just tae see an abort

    • Maybe dont do that then? Aborts happen all the time.

    • better than 9 months

  • There's always tomorrow.

    • Plus, there's always money in the banana stand.

  • SN9 Static Fire: 1:41:45 Abort.#1 2:21:00 ~||~ #2 3:32:04 ~||~ #3 4:30:00 ~||~ #4 5:26:09 ~||~ #5

    • @B N yes!

    • @SKM that's my quote.😉

    • Not all capes wear hero’s

  • Today SpaceX is practicing aborts quickly in succession

    • @calgar hmmm you might have a point here. Hate to think how to model or test the relevant fluid dynamics involved. The more reason I believe SpaceX should be open to us fans, so we might follow the engineering challenges closely. After all we are not "in a war" with anyone, are we?

    • @Jenny Davies quite the opposite ! the problem isnt the engine but the behaviour of the fuel during the belly flop ,dont get impatient this is actual rocket science :)

    • to be fair they lost the last prototype due to a lack of pressure i m not surprized they would test extensively a lot of different fuel configurations and settings !

    • @Jenny Davies sure looks like that

    • Wow 3 in a row unbelievable

  • 2:14:57 First siren before abort. 4:29:33 Second Abort. 5:52:12 Pure venting, nothing to see here. 27:41 Transition from Grass vent to Pad Cleared

    • Ok thanks

  • People: come on do a static fire! SpaceX/SN9: haha abort button go brrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  • Anyways was fun seeing SN9 even after the 3 aborts

  • lol
