03:13 Yahoo ScienceSpaceX says it’ll build and test its Starship prototypes in Texas, not Los Angeles

SpaceX says it’ll build and test the prototypes for its next-generation Starship space cruiser and Super Heavy booster in South Texas, despite a deal it struck to build a rocket factory at the Port of Los Angeles. At least by some accounts, the turnabout is a setback to Los Angeles’ efforts to build a high-tech “Silicon Harbor” at the port, with SpaceX’s planned 18-acre site on Terminal Island as the centerpiece. The Los Angeles City Council approved a rent-free, 20-year lease agreement with billionaire CEO Elon Musk’s company in May. City Councilman Joe Buscaino, who touted the deal as “game-changing for our city”… Read More

2019 may finally be the year when American astronauts launch to orbit from American soil again, ending an eight-year drought that started when NASA’s Space Shuttle program shut down in 2011. The inaugural flights of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program are slated to take place in the coming months, and the launches will see privately owned vehicles carrying space agency astronauts for the very first time. If the current schedules hold, California-based SpaceX may be the first one to send its vehicle to space with two NASA astronauts on board.

For this Verge Science video, we visited SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California, to meet those astronauts and see what one possible future of American crewed spaceflight looks like.

21:00 Yahoo ScienceElon Musk says SpaceX has assembled Starship test rocket with shiny, retro look

For weeks, photographers have been snapping pictures of a retro-looking, shiny stainless-steel rocket that's been taking shape at SpaceX's launch site in South Texas — and tonight, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk declared that assembly of the first Starship short-hop test rocket is complete. Musk tweeted a picture of what looks to be a roughly 120-foot-tall "Starship Hopper," composed of three sections that were put together at SpaceX's Boca Chica facility. "This is an actual picture, not a rendering," Musk wrote. But the rocket does look eerily like the illustration that Musk shared several days earlier — or, for that matter, the… Read More

21:00 Yahoo ScienceElon Musk shows off SpaceX s Tintin inspired Starship

It may look like something straight out of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century or Tintin's Destination Moon but, according to Elon Musk, the pictures he tweeted of his latest SpaceX creation are very much real. Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and electric car-maker Tesla, revealed that assembly of the 'Starship Hopper' test-flight rocket was complete and that the pictures of the shimmering, stainless steel construction were 'not a rendering'. The Tintin comparison is not an accident. In September of last year, SpaceX revealed the new design of the 'Big Falcon Rocket', now simply know as 'Starship', saying "I love the Tintin rocket design, so I kind of wanted to bias it towards that." "If in doubt," Musk added. "Go with Tintin." True to his word, the 120-foot-tall hopper is a tubular, pointy-topped rocket with

21:00 Yahoo ScienceSpaceX launches final batch of Iridium telecom satellites (and lands rocket)

SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket deployed the eighth and final set of next-generation Iridium satellites into orbit today, closing off a two-year launch campaign. The rocket rose into partly cloudy skies from California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base at 7:31 a.m. PT after a trouble-free countdown. Iridium CEO Matt Desch counted down the final seconds. Minutes after liftoff, the first-stage booster separated and made an at-sea touchdown on a drone landing ship called “Just Read the Instructions,” hundreds of miles out in the Pacific Ocean. The booster took on its first launch last September, to send the Telstar 18 Vantage satellite into… Read More
