“The Starship prototype descends under aerodynamic control, which is achieved through two forward and two rear wings independently. The four flaps are operated by the onboard computer to control the Starship’s stance during flight and allow it to land precisely in its intended position, ”added SpaceX. Immediately flip down and land before touching down for a slight landing on the mattress. “
