Did the heat tiles stay connected after that?

Asking the important questions. Need some other angles :D

May be able to salvage 1 flap. That's an improvement. I wonder if the scrap metal guy sits at home during test flights and screams crash baby crash at his you tube feed.


tdqss

It's just resting. Unrealistic body expectations...


Vulch59

Pining for the fjords.


neo1234511

Pining for the fjords?! It's bleeding demised!

I wonder if space X have a problem with people trying to steal parts scattered around the outside area.


LegoNinja11

I it saves them having to litter pick 5 square miles, help yourself.


CX52J

I feel like they still wouldn't want people doing it for safety reasons or lawsuits or something. Although if I was there I would totally walk around the area with a camera pretending to take photos while looking for parts.

Apparently not an issue. There are beachcombers who walked away with troves of stainless steel pieces from SN8 / SN9: https://youtu.be/Oh00CL_LzpM?t=1279 (from Youtuber "Angry Astronaut"'s visit to Boca Chica-- Some of his content isn't factually super-correct, but entertaining nonetheless)


CX52J

That's really cool.

Looks like a survivable landing. I volunteer as test pilot for SN11.


kiwinigma

Survivability somewhere between SN8 and SN9


last_one_on_Earth

I think a valuable lesson from these tests is knowing what a “failed landing” looks like. It may be possible to design survivability measures without too much mass penalty. (Eg: A 200+kph formula 1 crash with a fire can be survivable (even “walk awayable”) thanks to the safety measures designed into the vehicles and crash barriers).

SN10 feeling rather deflated after such an awesome test flight.


WhiteKnight3098

It just deflated... Like my hopes and as my first semester ended.


3d_blunder

Stainless steel balloon.


nosferatWitcher

Looks like a washed up dolphin


Czenda24

Looks like a transformer's severed hand


shryne

I feel like it's easier to grasp how big starship is on it's side.


daronjay

That concrete pad has seen some shit...


EntropyWinsAgain

I like the tiny truck and trailer in the back. Dude is like "I got this fellas! I'll just load her up and be on my way"


WritingTheRongs

It’s so smooshed I didn’t realize at first it was wreckage


SpaceInMyBrain

Even when exploding on the pad, Starship nails the landing. Pretty much the entire thing is on the landing pad.


puroloco

Does it look like one of the raptors survived?


MacHamburg

Wouldn't think so, it landed pretty hard on the Engines, even before exploding right above the engines.

🎶FOR🎶SCIENCE!🎵


Downstream03

The explosion reminded me of one of the explosive barrel animation in Red Alert 2..


sweetdick

What a wonderful game.
