SpaceX preparing for the biggest rocket launch


Share post:

On 16th November, a record was set by NASA when its space launch system (SLS) sent the Artemis-1 rocket to the moon, as this was the most powerful rocket in history till now. Artemis had a thrust of 40 lakh kilos, and as per NASA, even if all the 25 thousand train engines operating in the USA are combined, the energy will be lesser than Artemis.

Artemis broke the record of the Apollo Mission’s Saturn 5 rocket, but now, it is being anticipated that SLS will not be able to keep this record to itself for long now. According to Space.com, SpaceX, at the start of this week, successfully tested 11 out of the 33 engines of its super heavy rocket. When all of its engines will start working, they will produce an energy of 72 lakh 50 thousand kilo thrust, which will be around double of SLS.

Elon Musk’s SpaceX’s Super Heavy is 230-feet tall and will carry the 164-feet long starship aircraft. Even though starship has not been launched now, but the engine testing has been done, and most probably, it will also be launched this month only, despite the fact that it was scheduled to be launched in 2023.

It is being said that no matter whenever the ship gets launched, it will not be able to come back quickly. NASA, for the Artemis 3 mission, has chosen the Starship crew upper as the landing craft, and its aim is to make the American astronauts reach back to the surface of the moon at the beginning of 2026.

Now, NASA’s Orion craft is also returning to Earth, and the three-phased mission is going on according to the plan and expectations. Encouraged by this, NASA has decided to add on 7 more missions to this mission.
