Full Replay: Starship SN10 Flight Test, Landing, and Post-Flight BOOM!
SpaceX is set to launch the Starship SN10 prototype to an altitude of approximately 10 kilometers. A launch attempt is possible between 9 am and 6 pm Central time on Wednesday. However, as with testing, there is always a chance that teams could decide to stand down and try again on a different day.

      @art garrelli the rocket doesn't push air to accelerate, in fact, without the air, it actually does better! Drones push air with fast spinning propellers. Rockets use chemical propulsion. No air needed.

    This is the same problem with helicopters. Rocket is desending into its own induced hole in the air. Even with two engines next time it may have same performance degradation. They need to move sideways slowly until fast descent it stopped, then slowely decent to landing.

    The problem is the raptor engines are flawed. They have to replace too many of them after just one static fire. Had to change out a couple on sn9, and remember they did that today swap on one of the raptors on sn10 to get it ready to launch. Sn9 lost two raptors on landing, and sn10 develop fuel leaks from their raptors before landing. I don't know if it's the cryogenics that's causing the metal to crack in the plumbing or what.

    Hello, i thing one of the engine during the landing cause a depressurize of fuel chamber. Landing pads malfunction? Or they check if they can go without them ?! They was sure they land so soft that landing pads will be no need ? Or they test of if this part will malfunction landing still be possible ? I think is a Big win .. that landing give possible future crew enough time to get of from starship to safety! Normal person see this as failure ... but really for all humanity is a big step , give us so much more data we can work on to avoid many more future problems :) . GO SpaceX , anything is possible!
