Elon Musk’s SpaceX's Starship Lands And Then Explodes, All You Need To Know

Videos Team Latestly|

Space Exploration Technologies Corp's newest & biggest rocket pulled off its first successful landing, then exploded a brief time later & was engulfed by fire. Starship SN-10 prototype lifted off from SpaceX's seaside launch pad at about 5:15 pm in Boca Chica, Texas, on March 4, based on a live video stream on SpaceX's website. The rocket then flew to an altitude of about 10 kilometres (around 6 miles) before turning its engines back on and settling on the landing pad with a slight lean. Shortly after that, the rocket was lifted into the air by an explosion & consumed by flames, possibly after a fire ignited fuel. Until that point, the rocket appeared to achieve a key milestone with its first stable landing in three attempts. After its ascent, Starship shut off its three Raptor engines & performed a controlled "belly flop" descent, then reignited its engines to make a vertical landing. Despite the mishap, the test is likely to signal progress for the massive vehicle. Watch the video to know more.
