Trümmer einer SpaceX-Rakete verglühen in der Atmosphäre

Ziemlich spektakuläre Aufnahmen sind in den US-Staaten Oregon und Washington entstanden als Teile einer SpaceX-Rakete bei dem Wiedereintritt in die Atmosphäre verglüht sind.

Jonathan McDowell, an astronomer with the Center for Astrophysics at Harvard University, wrote on Twitter that what people saw in the Pacific Northwest on Thursday night was part of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket that had launched in early March. The debris was re-entering the atmosphere after 22 days in orbit, he said.

Mit dem SpaceX’ Starship SN10 hat eine SpaceX Mission mal wieder eine Landung geschafft. Kurz darauf ist das Ding dann trotzdem explodiert. Boooom.

SpaceX Starship SN10 prototype launched to an altitude of 6.2 miles (10 kilometers) and landed 6 minutes and 20 seconds after liftoff. Several minutes later the rocket exploded.

Falcon Heavy & Starman

Offizielles SpaceX-Video zum Falcon Heavy Launch von neulich. Schon ein bisschen episch.

When Falcon Heavy lifted off, it became the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. With the ability to lift into orbit nearly 64 metric tons (141,000 lb)—a mass greater than a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel–Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy, at one-third the cost.

Following liftoff, the two side boosters separated from the center core and returned to landing site for future reuse.

Falcon Heavy put a Tesla Roadster and its passenger, Starman, into orbit around the sun. At max velocity Starman and the Roadster will travel 11 km/s (7mi/s) and travel 400 million km (250 million mi) from Earth.
