After repeated Council of Worlds slaps against Elon Musk’s Space X Falcon rocket launch and/or landings, during which the Zetas emphasized that a manned mission to Mars will not occur, they seem to have had a success. What is different about this launch and landing is that the ocean platform landing was not attempted. Instead, the stage one rocket was brought back to land in Florida. Was this the issue? Why the objection to the ocean platform landing? [and from another]  I understand the benefits of reusability for the rocket booster. But I don't understand why they're landing it on a barge. I've read tons of articles about this but not one has even hinted at an answer. Why is landing on a barge preferable over a launchpad or any other large flat surface that isn't moving with the waves? … Musk says the payload hit for RTLS (Return To Launch Site) is 30% vs a 15% payload hit for landing on a downrange ocean platform. … I see nobody seems to have mentioned the simplest reason why they're not landing on land: there isn't any. They launch east from Florida, and there aren't any islands in the Atlantic out there. [and from another]  The launch and landing in Cape Canaveral, Florida, were the first from the private U.S. spaceflight company since its rocket exploded on liftoff in June. SpaceX had not previously attempted to land a rocket on land, and it marked the firm's first successful attempt to recover a rocket from an orbital flight. Previous attempts, all unsuccessful, were attempted on floating landing pads. The 15-story first stage of rocket — used to propel the payload to 62 miles or so until the second stage takes over — successfully landed on Earth again at a prepared landing zone.

After repeated failures, which we described as warnings from the Council of Worlds, the Space X Falcon has successfully made a launch while relanding the booster rockets to Earth. What is the message here, amid this celebration? The trail of tears for Elon Musk included the Falcon exploding on launch last June 28, and the landing platform disaster on April 15. We explained that the Council was sending a message that the elite would not escape to Mars. Why then was the Falcon successfully launched with the booster rockets landed back in Cape Canaveral? Noticeably lacking this time was the landing on an ocean platform. 

Why is this key? Landing on an ocean platform did not make sense from a cost benefit analysis. Espoused for saving a mere 15% in fuel costs, it carried the overhead of the platform itself. Musk stated the reason for an ocean landing was to avoid a crash on land, near populated areas, during initial practice runs. But without a successful landing, this December 21 landing was done directly onto land. The real goal, an ocean platform landing AND launch, was dropped, so that simply launching satellites and resupplying the ISS would be involved for the present and in the future. 

Despite much crowing in the media about manned missions to Mars, all involved know this will never be accomplished. It is bravado and face saving. The missions to and from Mars would require operating during the Last Weeks and in the Aftertime, when Cape Canaveral in Florida will be awash and under water. Houston likewise will be quickly under water. The elite at NASA and hovering around Elon Musk are well aware of the ZetaTalk predictions and accuracy, and see how quickly Nibiru is approaching the Earth. They know that time is tight, the timeline compressing, and if a replacement for a land launch is not available, all is lost!

A SpaceX rocket lost its nose cone during an otherwise successful launch in Florida

A SpaceX launch on Monday (Dec 16) went perfectly, except for one detail: The rocket lost its nose cone. At 7:10 p.m. ET, a Falcon 9 rocket took off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, to deliver a satellite into orbit.

The rocket's nose cone (otherwise known as its fairing halves) was supposed to be caught by two drone ships — named Ms. Tree and Ms. Chief – waiting in the Atlantic Ocean, equipped with large, stretched-out sheets.

Though the rocket successfully deployed the satellite, the company confirmed on Twitter that the ships had just missed catching both halves of the nose cone.

It's not unusual for rockets to lose their nose cones, which are designed to protect the spacecraft's payload and then split in two and detach after it's gone into space. That's why the nose cone is also referred to as the fairing halves.

SpaceX's mission, however, is not just to launch rockets. Along with many other space-exploration companies, SpaceX is racing to build reusable rockets and gradually lower the cost of spaceflight.

Monday's flight was meant to be another step toward this goal by marking the most rocket components recovered of any SpaceX flight, according to The Verge.

SpaceX’s Starhopper rocket bursts into flames during tests

Unlike some other space vessels, Starship, Spacehopper’s big brother, is expected to be completely reusable. Much like an airplane, it will be able to take off and land multiple times. SpaceX’s Falcon series of rockets are currently partially reusable.

The vessel was originally named “Big Falcon Rocket.” CEO Elon Musk changed the name of the rocket to Starship last year. When he announced the name change on Twitter a commenter mentioned “unless this starship is sent on a mission to another star system it can’t be called a starship” to which Musk replied, “Later versions will.”

Starhopper is meant to be a test rocket for the Starship project. During tests, the spacecraft has been flying short flights at a low altitude as a way of proving the technology used to power it actually works. If the project takes off, it could revolutionize space travel (and make it significantly less expensive by reusing the same rocket).

The spacecraft uses SpaceX’s “Raptor” rocket engines, and the company plans to gradually add more of those engines over time, ultimately reaching the seven engines expected to be included in the final Starship rocket. That rocket will also have an additional 31 Raptor engines as part of a “Super Heavy” booster. SpaceX completed its first test of Starhopper in April.

Inaugural missions for Starship are expected to happen as early as 2021.

SpaceX May Let Its 'Starhopper' Starship Prototype Off Its Leash Today

Starhopper is expected to get about 65 feet off the ground.


 SpaceX's Mars-colonizing tech will take a big leap today (July 16), if all goes according to plan.

The Starhopper spacecraft, a prototype of SpaceX's Starship Mars vehicle, is scheduled to make its first untethered test flight tomorrow, company founder and CEO Elon Musk said.

"Raptor engine mounted on Starhopper. Aiming for hover test Tues," Musk said via Twitter Saturday (July 13). "~20 m [meters, 66 feet] up & sideways for first flight. Mk1 Starship hopefully 20 km [12 miles] up in a few months," he added in another tweet.

Starhopper has made two brief test flights to date, both of them while tethered to the ground for safety's sake. Those flights occurred in April at SpaceX's Boca Chica facility, near Brownsville, Texas. The upcoming, untethered flight will also occur at Boca Chica.

This first version of Starhopper features one of SpaceX's advanced, next-generation Raptor engines. SpaceX has been testing the engine that will fly tomorrow extensively over the past few weeks, and it is apparently now ready to go, as Musk said.

Future, higher-flying iterations of Starhopper will sport three Raptors. The fully operational, 100-passenger Starship will have six of the engines. Starship will launch atop a huge rocket called Super Heavy, which will be powered by 31 Raptors. Both Starship and Super Heavy will be reusable.

Indeed, SpaceX is counting on both vehicles to fly frequently and repeatedly, bringing the cost of launch down enough to make it economically feasible to tackle Mars settlement and other ambitious exploration feats. 

SpaceX is building Starship prototypes at Boca Chica and on Florida's Space Coast, reasoning that some competition will improve the vehicle's design. 

The Starship-Super Heavy duo has one confirmed mission on its docket: a round-the-moon trip booked by Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa, who plans to take a group of artists with him. That flight is targeted for 2023. But SpaceX is looking to launch an uncrewed commercial satellite mission sooner — perhaps as early as 2021.

Video shows SpaceX rocket booster narrowly missing its landing platform and hitting the sea after the 'most difficult launch ever'

 A core part of a SpaceX rocket narrowly missed a landing pad, crashed into the sea, and exploded during a test that CEO Elon Musk described as the "most difficult" in company history.

At around 2:30 a.m. ET on Tuesday, a Falcon Heavy rocket lifted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, the third time Falcon Heavy has been launched since its introduction in February 2018.

It launched with three reusable boosters, two of which made it back to earth in one piece. However, as seen in this video, the third, central booster, was not as successful:

The central core booster narrowly missed SpaceX's floating platform, known as Of Course I Still Love You. Instead it crashed into the sea and appeared to explode.

Elon Musk, SpaceX's CEO, tweeted: "Center core RUD. It was a long shot." RUD stands for "rapid unscheduled disassembly."

Here is SpaceX's full stream of the event. You can see the moment the booster crashes around 35 minutes into the video, from T+00:10:40:

SpaceX Crew Dragon Capsule Suffers Anomaly During Engine Test



CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — A test version of SpaceX's new astronaut taxi, dubbed the Crew Dragon, suffered some kind of an anomaly during an engine test Saturday (April 20) at the company's facilities at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

According to Florida Today, large plumes of smoke were seen emanating from the area, indicating something had gone wrong. There were no  injuries caused by  the anomaly, which is now under control, according to officials with the 45th Space Wing based at the Air Force station.

"Earlier today, SpaceX conducted a series of engine tests on a Crew Dragon test vehicle on our test stand at Landing Zone 1 in Cape Canaveral, Florida," a company spokesperson told in a statement. "The initial tests completed successfully but the final test resulted in an anomaly on the test stand."

SpaceX plans to use its Crew Dragon capsule to ferry NASA astronauts to and from the International Space Station. The capsule successfully flew for the first time in March. During the uncrewed mission, the spacecraft docked itself with the space station and then returned to Earth, splashing down in the Atlantic Ocean

That first flight was a major milestone for SpaceX, and one it needed to complete before Dragon can carry people. Since its return, the company has been busy preparing the vehicle for its next task: an inflight abort test. 

This crucial test will demonstrate that the capsule is capable of keeping astronaut crews safe should something go wrong during the launch into orbit. (The system is similar to the emergency abort system on the Soyuz rocket, which saved two astronauts during a mishap last October.) SpaceX was planning on conducting that test sometime in June.

During the test, eight SuperDraco engines — which are embedded in the Dragon's hull — will fire, demonstrating that the spacecraft can pull itself away from the rocket. Designed to keep a crew safe, this feature will only be used in case of an emergency during flight, but SpaceX must show it works properly. SpaceX performed a successful pad abort in 2015 using the system.

SpaceX lost a rocket booster during landing for the first time since 2016

  A SpaceX booster stage crashed into the ocean during an attempt to land at Cape Canaveral Wednesday (Dec. 5), after it launched a supply spacecraft to the International Space Station.

The brand-new Falcon 9 rocket booster lifted off successfully, but as the first stage—which contains nine Merlin engines and the bulk of the rocket’s structure—returned to land, it lost control and crashed into the Atlantic ocean.

The CRS-16 booster begins to spin out of control as it returns to Florida.

In a tweet, SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk attributed the crash to a stalled hydraulic pump (which controls the fins on the rocket). He said the rocket appears to be undamaged and is still transmitting data to the control room.

Musk also said that the pump for the landing-control fins was not designed to have a redundant backup—it’s not critical to the mission of launching spacecraft— but said the company would likely add a backup now.

SpaceX stressed that their primary mission was launching NASA’s supplies into space, and so far that mission is on track, with the Dragon spacecraft scheduled to reach the ISS on Dec. 8. That will mean a new record for the company: its 20th successful launch in 2018.

Wednesday’s landing snafu involved a “block 5” Falcon 9 booster, which is designed to be re-used at least 10 times. On Dec. 3, SpaceX flew a different “block 5” rocket for the third time, landing it successfully for future re-use. As SpaceX rockets are priced starting at $60 million (though previously-flown ones retail more cheaply), the company’s inability to reuse this booster in the future could cost it millions.

The CRS-16 booster began spinning out of control toward the end of its landing pattern, just before it was expected to fire its engines to slow itself ahead of reaching the ground. It’s not known if any changes were made to this rocket compared to other block 5 boosters.

John Insprucker, the SpaceX engineer hosting the company’s live video stream, noted that the company will use the data gathered during the failed landing to iterate and improve on future vehicles.

This is the first failed landing of a Falcon 9 booster since June 2016. Since then, the company has recovered boosters 26 times in landings on autonomous drone ships and landing pads at Cape Canaveral and Vandenberg Air Force Base. While this is hardly the first time a SpaceX booster has crashed during a recovery attempt, more than two years of successful attempts made them seem routine.
