SpaceX* Starship Launch 2023-04-20 Demonstrates Resilience in Face of Challenges, Paving the Way for Future Success
The historic launch of SpaceX’s Starship on April 20, 2023, marked an important step forward in space exploration, despite a few challenges along the way. While the second stage did not ignite as planned, leading to the rocket’s intentional destruction, the mission showcased the resilience and adaptability of the SpaceX team. The lessons learned from this experience will undoubtedly contribute to future improvements, bringing us closer to achieving reliable and efficient space travel.
During the live broadcast, it became apparent that 5 of the 33 engines had failed shortly after takeoff. The surreal sight inspired us to make a piece of jewelry to commemorate this historic day.
The result is an object that we have individually produced in a 3D printing process by renowned manufacturers. The price is determined by the size and the chosen material (steel, sterling silver or titanium). In addition, it is possible to provide the »exhaust nozzles« with small precious stones. Please ask us about the possibility of customization – we will be happy to make you an individual offer.
Details of the historic launch can be found on the SpaceX homepage.*Disclaimer: gekko, Gesellschaft für Kommunikation und Kooperation mbH, its subsidiaries and affiliates, are independent entities and are in no way affiliated with, endorsed by, or contracted by SpaceX.
