Elon Musk said that SpaceX’s Starship SN10 is likely to launch this week after the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has concluded its investigation of the explosive test flight of SN9.
- Elon Musk said SpaceX could launch its Starship SN 10 prototype this week
- The company is under investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration
- Investigation investigated the root cause of the explosion of the SN9 prototype
- The agency found no danger and believed that SN10 had been allowed to take off
- SN10 flew the same high altitude six miles
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has concluded its investigation of SpaceX’s explosive Startship SN9 prototype, “clearing the way for the SN10 test flight.”
The focus of the investigation was to ensure operational safety. It was found that the explosion did not endanger the public and that there was debris in the designated hazardous area.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced that this means SpaceX can launch its latest prototype. CEO Elon Musk said that SpaceX is likely to fly this week.
The road closure around SpaceX’s Boca Chica facility in Texas stated that the space flight activity is scheduled for February 22 from 9 am GMT to 6 pm GMT, but it is not clear whether the company is conducting tests or otherwise The world will see the SN10 rise to the first six-mile flight.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has concluded its investigation of SpaceX’s explosive Startship SN9 prototype, “clearing the way for the SN10 test flight.”And Elon Musk said that this might happen sometime this week
After the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) launched the Starship SN9 on February 2, it began an investigation of SpaceX, and the rocket suddenly exploded into a rocket when it tried to land.
SN9 took off from SpaceX’s Boca Chica test facility at 3:24 pm Eastern Time on February 4.
The huge rocket reached the six-mile goal after flying for about 4 minutes, and then successfully made an aerodynamic descent while falling to the ground.
However, the prototype could not be manipulated to a vertical position before landing on the launch pad, which hindered its ability to stick and land.

Elon Musk hinted on Twitter that SpaceX could launch Starship SN10 this week
It landed with a deafening impact and exploded into a bright orange flame and dust cloud, but the fire did not spread.
After the launch, the FAA investigated the accident to determine whether SpaceX complied with the agreement, especially that no people or objects were in danger during the explosion.
The federal agency told DailyMail.com in a statement: “The FAA’s top priority in regulating commercial space transportation is to ensure safe operations even in abnormal situations.”

“The FAA will be responsible for the investigation of the landing accident involving the SpaceX Starship SN9 prototype in Boca Chica, Texas.”
“Although this is an unmanned test flight, the investigation will identify the root cause of today’s accidents and possible opportunities to further improve safety as the plan develops.”
Like many people watching the live broadcast, the FAA believes that the failure occurred when the Rockets re-entered.
A FAA spokesperson told CNN that “The SN9 vehicle failed within the scope of FAA’s safety analysis.” The failed landing and explosion did not endanger the public or property.
The announcement means that the SN10 will be launched in a test facility and will attempt to perform the iconic “belly flop” action on the return journey-but hopefully the latest prototype will still be able to land like its predecessor.
