Starship prototype exploded on landing after test flight


SpaceX’s prototype Starship spacecraft exploded while landing at a spaceport in Texas.

During a test flight on Wednesday, which lasted 6.5 minutes, the ship soared over the Gulf of Mexico, reaching a target height of 12.5 km. He then turned to a horizontal position and carried out the descent, after which he returned to the vertical position for landing, but exploded on contact with the ground.

This was the most difficult test for the new ship, which, according to Elon Musk, will be able to deliver people to Mars.
