Washington, April 18 – SpaceX will launch a new attempt to test a super-heavy rocket on Thursday.
The spacecraft was scheduled to depart for its first test flight from a launch pad in Texas on Monday, reach Earth’s orbit, and then plunge into the Pacific Ocean near Hawaii. The first stage of the Super Heavy launch vehicle was supposed to collapse in the Gulf of Mexico shortly after launch. In the future, as conceived by the creators, the entire structure will become reusable. The test was canceled for technical reasons.
Shortly before the launch, SpaceX owner Elon Musk tweeted that one of the ship’s engine pressure valves was not working, and this could cause the launch to be cancelled. What happened a few minutes before launch.
Previously, at least seven different spacecraft tests had ended in a ship or booster explosion.
