Starship Flight Test #3
August 31 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Starship’s third integrated flight test currently scheduled for No Earlier Than middle of Q3 2023.
Starship S27 is set to launch on top of Super Heavy Booster 10 from Starbase, Texas.
B10 will boost S27 to space and a quarter of orbital speed after which it will separate and boost back to land on the Gulf of Mexico for a splashdown.
S27 will continue into a ballistic trajectory at orbital speeds and reenter over the Pacific Ocean. Since it doesn’t have flaps or heatshield tiles, the Ship will burn up on reentry and will therefore not be recovered.
