SpaceX Starship SN10 Explodes.

SpaceX Starship SN10 Lands Successfully and Explodes after 5 Mins. SpaceX’s latest Starship prototype landed on Wednesday for the first time after carrying out a high-altitude test flight in Texas — but exploded minutes later on its landing pad.

Wait for it!



SN10 took off at about 6:14 p.m. ET powered by three Raptor engines, reaching about 6 miles up. Next, each engine shut down one by one as the vehicle slowly began to orient itself horizontally for the descent. Then Starship began its descent in a belly flop using its four wings or flips, to control itself. The drop looks straight out of science-fiction even after the third time seeing it.

Re: SpaceX Starship SN10 Explodes.

back to the drawing board. Good thing they do a lot of tests as that's the only way to eliminate any future problems.

Ya, you can imagine the disappointment, years of training, leave earth, 7 month flight, land on mars, be there for 2 minutes, then this happens

Re: SpaceX Starship SN10 Explodes.

They said it was a fuel leak. In any case, it successfully passed all the tests, and landed perfectly. The explosion came a few minutes after engine shutdown, after it was successfully on the ground.
They learn more each time. This type of landing would have been impossible even 10 years ago.

Re: SpaceX Starship SN10 Explodes.

Spacex absolutely gets tax dollars.

Spacex and all his other companies have received BILLIONS in tax subsidies, and continue to receive tax subsidies.

"Musk’s companies – Tesla Motors, SpaceX, and SolarCity – have nevertheless received government loans, contracts, tax credits, and subsidies over the years. Musk’s empire can largely be credited to government subsidies at both the state and federal levels." - businessinsider Nevertheless, SAYING he is anti-subsidy.

You have to remember who we're talking about here. The most hypocritical multi-billionaire in the world and that's saying something. He speaks out against taxes, yet takes billions in contracts and tax breaks, over all his companies including spacex.

Here's a small bit:

According to a Los Angeles Times investigation, Musk's companies had received an estimated $4.9 billion in government support by 2015, and they've gotten more since.

SpaceX lands a $2.89 billion contract with NASA in April 2021.

SpaceX signs a $653 million contract with the US Air Force in 2020.

SpaceX receives $15 million from the state of Texas in 2014.


also:

Tesla accepts "certain payroll benefits" from the federal government's $600 billion 2020 pandemic stimulus.

New York State put $750 million toward a SolarCity plant in Buffalo in 2016.

As of 2015, Tesla had sold $517 million in environmental credits to competitors per a federal mandate. Tax credits for consumers also helped them sell more cars.

SpaceX receives $15 million from the state of Texas in 2014

SolarCity receives $497.5 million in grants, in addition to tax credits, by 2015.

The Energy Department loans Tesla $465 million in 2010.

So check this out:

--“For those wondering, I will pay over $11 billion in taxes this year,” Elon Musk tweeted Monday. (for 2021)

- Stock options Musk was awarded in 2012 are set to expire in August next year. In order to exercise them, he has to pay income tax on the gain.

- The Tesla and SpaceX chief has been sparring with prominent Democrats on Twitter lately over the issue of tax avoidance. --all from CNBC



He's the first one to bitch about taxing the rich. Gee I wonder why.

He paid no taxes in 2018. according to a report done by ProPublica.
