Elon Musk reveals 'catch and quick release' plan for SpaceX's Super Heavy ...

Elon Musk is known for revealing ambitious plans and the latest suggests the Startship’s Super Heavy booster will not land, but be caught when it returns to Earth.

The SpaceX CEO shared on Twitter that the heavy booster, which is still under development, will be retrieved by the launch tower arm used to stabilize the vehicle during its pre-takeoff preparations.

The proposed method would immediately reposition the booster on the launch mount, allowing it to take flight again ‘in under an hour.’

SpaceX is working on the Super Heavy rocket at its Boca Chica, Texas testing facility, but is set to conduct more test flights of its Starship prototypes that are without the massive booster.

Starship is made up of two - the Super Heavy booster and the rocket ship that Musk designed to carry up to 100 people to Mars at a time.

Now that SpaceX has launched three of the Starship prototypes into the air, it seems the firm is beginning to make plans for how the process will work when the booster is added.

Musk’s ambitious plan would be a way to cut costs and mass by removing the need for the booster to have legs for landing.

However, if the CEO is to reach his goal by sending one million people to Mars by 2025, SpaceX will need to launch multiple Starships in a single day.

When the tower arm catches the booster, it is immediately put back into ‘ready’ mode allowing it to take off again in under one hour.
