The three releases to watch in 2021

It’s back to school! And SpaceX has already completed several Starlink flights. Now is the time for Elon Musk’s company to return to service to make us dream once again. In fact, Thomas Pesquet is about to fly aboard SpaceX’s Falcon 9 launcher.

SpaceX in a nutshell:

SpaceX revolutionized space travel by doing the impossible for the space industry: making space shuttles reusable. The success of manned spaceflight in 2020 aboard the Crew Dragon capsule, which successfully took off, made Tesla’s notoriety take off with it.

Musk has always been recognized as a genius, but SpaceX’s successful launch marks his pinnacle.

On May 30, the Crew Dragon capsule took two NASA astronauts aboard: Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley to join the ISS station.

The starship SN9 and SN9 Bis?

SpaceX has revised the Starship or Big Flask Rocket rocket design of essential Elon Musk. As its name suggests, the Big Falcon Rocket is in fact a large rocket 118 meters high, with 2 floors and 1000 m³ of internal volume.

SN9

As for the space shuttle, it measures 55 meters. Given its immensity compared to the Falcon 9, the device is suitable for transport by boat. You should also know that the BFR’s capacity has been revised down as it went from 150 tons to 100 tons.

However, its designer points out that this will in no way affect the performance of the Big Falcon Rocket. The device is expected to reach Mars in the future.

Meanwhile, a new launch of the big bottle rocket is planned for the year 2021 by SpaceX. This will be an opportunity for SpaceX and the entire world to see how far the Big Falcon Rocket can go with the modifications and improvements it has undergone. All bets will, of course, be to see SN9 successfully land on Earth to become the first reusable ship.

Falcon Heavy launch

2021 will mark the fourth launch of SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket! It is too early to comment on the nature of the payloads of this device, currently known as the USSF-44.

However, with the heavy Falcon, it is very likely that the rocket will be launched to carry out signals intelligence missions, or simply, an espionage mission related to military satellite communications.

Also, you should know that from a technical point of view, the composition of the USSF-44 mission has at least 2 carpooling payloads, as well as 2 separate satellites.

At the launch of the heavy Falcon, the USSF-44 will then have to weigh 3.7 tons. When the contract was announced, the Falcon Heavy would launch in November 2020.

According to a BRIG presentation, the launch of SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket and thus the US Air Force’s USSF-44 mission is scheduled for February 28, 2021.

Falcon 1, SpaceX analyzes its classic

The launch of Falcon 1 is one of the most anticipated events in 2021 for Elon Musk’s company: SpaceX. In fact, SpaceX manufactured this device to minimize the costs of launching satellites.

Falcon 1, as its name suggests, is the first version of SpaceX’s Falcon rockets. It allowed the development of Falcon 9 components. Knowing also that around the year 2010, spaceX focused on Falcon 1 whose payload capacity is at a higher level.

Falcon 1 owes this performance to the Merlin rocket engine. The rocket has 2 stages, the 1st housing the engine. SpaceX has also thought about the rocket’s capacity by enlarging its fairing so it can accommodate heavier payloads.

Today, SpaceX preferred to look again at the Falcon 1 project and make any necessary improvements. The launch is scheduled for the new year, which is why 2021 will be an exceptional year for SpaceX!
