For those, who don’t know many details about Starship design, I would like to mention that what SpaceX is testing today is just a scaled down version of the upper stage for the the fully reusable two-stage-to-orbit SpaceX Starship system.
According to the current plans, it will consist of upper stage Starship and lower stage Super Heavy, and would be the tallest rocket ever built:
I can confirm the pointy end is still facing up, but the flamey end is kind of everywhere.
Overall, so many things went right with this launch.
-The rocket lifted off
-It rolled over successfully
-the “Skydiver” flight profile was incredibly stable.
-2 engines successfully relit
-the “flip over” worked and the rocket was pointing in the correct direction
-the rocket was coming down right over the pad
The mission was a success. Elon said there was only a 30% chance of the rocket surviving, but they got the data they needed.
