WATCH: SpaceX Starship prototype EXPLODES after ‘mostly successful’ test flight & touchdown
SpaceX’s SN10 Starship prototype has made a largely successful test flight, soaring some 10km high and performing a shaky upright landing, though a small fire was seen upon touchdown before the craft erupted in a fiery explosion.
While the flight initially appeared to be successful, seeing the Starship soar some 10 kilometers high before touching down, it was visibly leaning upon landing and a small fire was seen at its base.

Minutes later, however, the craft was blown to pieces, lifting it into the air and emitting a massive fireball.
