Elon Musk’s company, SpaceX, has a history of creating space vehicles that explode. It happened again yesterday.
SpaceX’s second Starship test flight ends with another kaboom
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX’s second full test flight of its futuristic, bullet-shaped Starship ended in another fiery crash landing Tuesday.
Elon Musk’s company launched its latest Starship prototype from the southeastern tip of Texas, two months after the previous test ended in an equally explosive belly flop.
The full-scale stainless steel rocket reached its intended altitude of 6.2 miles (10 kilometers), slightly lower than the last one. Everything seemed to be going well as the 160-foot (50-meter) Starship flipped on its side and began its descent. But it did not manage to straighten itself back up in time for a landing and slammed into the ground.
“We’ve just got to work on that landing a little bit,” said SpaceX launch commentator John Insprucker. “Reminder — this is a test flight.”
Regardless, none of this has hurt business for the company. In fact, Canada, the UK, and the U.S. continue to fund their controversial and highly opposed internet satellites to be launched into space (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). It doesn’t seem right, does it?
