When Do We Hear The Next Double Sonic Boom?

Just a simple question.

This website only exists for asking this question ;-)
online since: August 2017

It has been a few years since the last Space Shuttle landed (21.07.2011). Great times. But when do we have manned flights again?
Of course - there is still Soyuz with manned flights to the International Space Station (China, Japan and India are working on it), but what do you think - is it time to make big and fascinating manned missions?
I think we all miss them - a little bit, at least.

--- This is a rhetorical question - the 'Double Sonic Boom' is synonymical for new great manned missions ---

Because when a big spacecraft, like the Space Shuttle, is getting back into the atmosphere you can hear a double sonic boom on the ground.

Please note: All missions which are done right now (and also in the past) are very interesting and really hard work. So, all the respect to them!

!!! TOMORROW - 27.05.2020 - Commercial Crew SpaceX Demonstration Mission 2 (CREWED) !!!


On May 27, 2020, NASA will attempt to launch SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule from Cape Canaveral - the first manned flight from American soil in nearly a decade. The countdown has begun, in the midst of a pandemic, to see what the next generation of space technology could bring.

SpaceX has signed the world’s first private passenger to fly around the Moon aboard our BFR launch vehicle - an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of traveling to space.

Only 24 humans have been to the Moon in history. No one has visited since the last Apollo mission in 1972. Find out who’s flying and why on Monday, September 17 at 6pm PT.

Thanks to Elon Musk and Space X! You make us hope again!

Today was the first start of the Falcon Heavy rocket - first big step to upcomming missions to Mars.

Trump to send astronauts back to the moon -- and eventually Mars


Martin (Austria) says...

First moon then Mars: Trump government changes NASA's target direction

(translated via Internet - original in German):

The US wants to return to the moon and establish a presence there before it goes to Mars.

This announced US Vice President Mike Pence and demanded that his country regain leadership in space.

Yes, I hope for an exciting time too.

According to current plans, there's a lot of things that could happen in the next few years:

Russia and the US will work together to build a moon base
