SpaceX is to land the Super Heavy Booster on Droneship! Mechazilla catching is mind-blowing...
As the second orbital flight of Starship approaches, the interest of rocket enthusiasts is on the rise.
They are not only curious about Starship's immediate upgrades and developments, but also about what will happen after Starship reaches orbit.
Especially Super Heavy's ability to return for reuse.
According to SpaceX's long-standing plan, Super Heavy will be "caught" and returned to the launch pad.
However, until now, many still believe that the safer and more efficient method for SpaceX is the sea landing on the drone ship, a method that Falcon 9 is doing masterfully.
So, how will Super Heavy land on a drone ship offshore?
Why didn't SpaceX choose to take this approach?
Stay tuned as we dive and more in this episode of Alpha Tech!
