FAQ

  1. When next launch? (IFT-5) Booster catch NET late July, per Elon.
  2. When previous launch? (IFT-4)? Booster 11 and Ship 29 launched on 2024-06-06.
  3. What was the result? Both booster and ship make it to landing burn and splashdown. Ship flaps took a beating on reentry, but remained in control of the vehicle.

B1061 joins B1062 in the "21 flights" club, B1067 reaches 20 flights, B1063 at 18 flights, and B1069 and B1071 are tied for 4th place at 16 flights. Crazy that 112 flights were completed by just these six boosters!

Nearly three years after the Inspiration4 commercial crew launch, biological data from the mission represents the first comprehensive, open-access database to include commercial astronaut health information.

Access to astronaut research data from astronauts has historically been limited, due to privacy regulations and concerns, but the field of astronauts is changing as commercial spaceflight becomes feasible for civilians.

Another happy landing. I can't believe starship managed to land gently after burning half the flap off!
