Musk added: “Their rules are meant for a handful of expendable launches per year from a few government facilities. Under those rules, humanity will never get to Mars.”
The agonising SN10 launch delay has led to intense speculation on social media.
Kieran tweeted: “The way SpaceX are innovating and pushing the boundaries they are, it wouldn’t surprise me if SN10 fails to stick the landing.
“I’m hopeful that it will land, but if it doesn’t, it doesn’t. Make improvements and on to the next.”
And space enthusiast Dayton Costlow believes it may be a while until you can expect to see the next SpaceX Starship test launch.
