SpaceX's Starship Has More Test Flights Planned

SpaceX's Starship is the rocket that will change everything. Eco-friendly, able to carry cargo and eventually passengers, and most importantly, reusable, this rocket is promising to change space travel forever. Sadly, booking a ticket to space is still a long way away. But we are able to watch the test flights of the Starship rocket, which are admittedly pretty cool. It's not every day you get to watch the baby steps of rocket science.

If you want to launch your own rocket (or watch one being launched), check out these GIFs of Estes model rockets being launched. Or if you feel like making your own (kind of) rockets, check out this comprehensive guide for making some awesome paper airplanes

Estes Model Rocket Launches in GIFs

No matter who you are or where you're from, there's one thing we can all agree on: rockets are cool. Most of us don't have the brain capacity to become rocket scientists, but the next best thing is available to everyone: model rockets (or awesome paper airplanes). At the top of the model rocket hierarchy is Estes, a globally known company with the best model rockets around. While building model rockets is fun, the best bit is launching them into the sky and seeing them reach the heavens. We captured ten of the best Estes model rocket launches in GIFs, so you can experience the awesomeness of a rocket launch minus the effort of making a model rocket yourself. You are welcome. 

If you want to see a real rocket being launched, check out SpaceX's Starship rocket's test flight.

AI Robots Are Being Trained to 3D Print Rockets

3D printing has really taken off in the past few years. What started off small scale is now expanding to being able to print rockets. Not just parts - entire rockets. That's what the folks over at Relativity Space have been working on, and they may just revolutionize the rocket industry - both on Earth and in space. If things go well, the startup is hoping that their AI will be able to oversee the building of rockets on Mars. Life is starting to sound a lot like science fiction...
