SpaceX Spaceship Prototype SN5 Makes Successful Test Flight
Posted by GAF on Tuesday, August 4, 2020 8:08 PM

Didn't see much about this on the news, but the SN5 prototype made a successful short hop from its launch pad in Boca Chica, Texas this evening.

Thing looks like a tin cylinder, but is 30 meters long and 9 meters in diameter.  Love how it lifts off and then lands, as God and Robert Heinlein intended rockets to do.  Big Smile

Cool!  Looked a little squirrely there for a bit.  When do we start seeing kits of Dragon/Falcon heavy?!

Thanks,

John
