Vote for this video by social sharing!There’s been a flurry of small stories this week, and I’ve been especially busy, so I’m rolling these into one big video. Firstly SpaceX finally test fired a Raptor engine on their SN4 Starship prototype down in Boca Chica. The engine was fired twice over 2 nights and now has been removed from the test article presumably for a detailed examination in advance of a longer fire and eventual flight.
There’s the story of baby XÆA-12….
And Tom Cruise’s plan to shoot a movie on location on the Space Station, which is now possible thanks to NASA’s change in policy about private use of the space station.
Finally an update on China’s spacecraft test, the inflatable heat shield failed landing but the main capsule spent 3 days in space and performed a successful reentry and landing.
As usualy many many thanks to
for shooting the all important Starship test footage footage.
