Fifth prototype of the Starship prototype vehicle. On the 4th of August, SN5 completed a 150m hop, its first successful launch and landing.
Starship SN6 first flew on Aug. 23rd in Boca Chica, Texas with a single Raptor engine. It flew to height of 150m before landing safely. This vehicle has now been transported back to the main construction site.
SN8 is the first starship prototype to be fitted with the new design wings. It is expected to fly the 20km Hop.
Starship Mk1 was partially destroyed during max pressure tank testing, when the forward LOX tank ruptured along a weld line of the craft's steel structure, propelling the bulkhead several meters upwards.
SN1 was destroyed when undergoing pressurization.
SN3's cryo test failed, the result being the LOX (Liquid Oxygen) Tank collapsing due to underpressurisation.
On April 26, 2020, SN4 successfully completed a cryogenic pressure test. On May 29, 2020, SN4 exploded after engine testing.
Intentionally destroyed during a pressurization test.
SpaceX Test tank for 304L Stainless Steel. Top bulkhead intentionally burst during pressure testing.
SN2 successfully went through a pressure and cryo test, but was not used for a static fire or hop.
First prototype of the Starship vehicle. Starhopper was a short test article that flew once to a height of 150m before landing safely.
