Speaking during a live stream for SpaceX’s Starlink mission on Sunday, hesaid: “Similar to previous high-altitude flight tests of Starship, Serial Number 15 (SN15) was powered through ascent by its three Raptor engines, with each shutting off in sequence prior to the vehicle reaching its apogee approximately 10km above sea level.

“SN15 then performed a propellant transition to the header tanks, which hold landing propellant, before reorienting itself for entry and a controlled aerodynamic descent.

“Finally, the Raptor engines ignited as the vehicle performed the landing flip manoeuvre, immediately before successfully touching down on the landing pad.

“Now these test flights and pathfinders are all about developing a transportation system that can help humanity return to the Moon, travel to Mars, and even go beyond.
