CTOnews.com November 18 news, SpaceX Starship (Starship/Starship) second comprehensive test launch at 9 o 'clock tonight, officials delayed 40 seconds, to carry out the final inspection.
The second flight test was the first to employ a new staging method called hot-staging, a hot stage separation system for the super-heavy Raptor engine and a new electronic thrust vectoring (TVC) system, in addition to base reinforcement and water-cooled steel flame deflectors and many other enhancements.
▲ Musk looked serious as of CTOnews.com, the superheavy rocket (B9) and the starship spacecraft (S25) were successfully thermally separated, but the picture showed that the superheavy rocket (B9) exploded after separation, and the starship was temporarily fine.
Although the official live broadcast stated that the rocket exploded as "as expected," the official footage did not cut into the final explosion.
