 SpaceX plans to launch two Falcon 9 rockets and test flights of StarCraft


At the same time, SpaceX is preparing for its second short-range low altitude test flight of its starship prototype at some time between these orbital launches. However, the second delayed launch of ulanrol-44 has put SpaceXs two launch mission dates in suspense.

The recent delay in SpaceXs east coast launch has pushed the companys second full-scale starship flight test to the forefront of the team. The prototype of the starship, named SN6, is currently scheduled to try its first 150 meter altitude test flight as early as August 29, US local time. On August 4, the Starship SN5 became the first full-scale prototype to successfully launch (and land). In less than four weeks, the second successful test flight will represent an extraordinary feat, with two prototypes with totally different Raptor engines and hulls.

The Argentinean satellite was originally planned to be launched as early as March 30, but its launch was delayed due to limitations related to the new coronal epidemic and technical delays. The booster of the Falcon 9 rocket, which launched saocom1b, was even replaced in delay, from b1051 to b1059, as SpaceX tried to fill the gaps in the list through internal star chain missions. Now, the delay in nrol-44s technical launch has pushed the Falcon 9 mission from August 27 to the night of August 30. Finally, before the launch of nrol-44 is delayed, the 11th SpaceX satellite launch mission is scheduled for August 30. The delay in the launch of ula increased considerable uncertainty, pushing the launch of the satellite chain satellite to September 1 at one time, and then the launch date was rescheduled to late August. Assuming SpaceX still needs to wait for the ula launch, the most likely choice is August 31, because if it is chosen on August 30, the company will need to launch twice in less than 10 hours.
