One of the coolest people in the world, Elon Musk, has done it again. SpaceX has successfully landed their 5th rocket on Sunday, December 22nd. Musk has always been pursuing his dream of revolutionizing the space industry and with these rockets being so affordable to make, it is only a matter of time before we are living on Mars. With all the success SpaceX has had, Elon Musk has become the pioneer of space and you should follow in his footsteps and make your own personal dreams come true.
This is a blog about SpaceX’s 5th test rocket landing. SpaceX’s CEO Elon Musk has successfully landed his 5th test rocket, called the Starship SN-15 prototype, in Texas. The prototype is designed to transport people to Mars. SpaceX is working on a different type of rocket that will take people to the moon.
With the milestone achievement, SpaceX can move on to more ambitious tests of a rocket that CEO Elon Musk envisions as a future workhorse for trips to the moon and Mars. NASA recently selected SpaceX’s Starship project for a moon-landing system.
The company also anticipates that the stainless steel behemoth may eventually become capable of hypersonic, point-to-point travel across Earth.
On March 30, a mishap during the previous Starship rocket test flight resulted in smoke and debris raining down on the area.
Two previous attempts to land the spacecraft ended in fireballs. A previous vehicle touched down at an inclined angle only to be engulfed in flames shortly after. No one was aboard any of the spacecraft.
Designed to hold 100 metric tons, SpaceX’s Starship is 160 feet high and 30 feet in diameter, able to carry 100 passengers. It can use a booster rocket to create its two-stage system, and is capable of carrying 100 people.
