SpaceX Starship launch failure: presumed unsuccessful minutes after reaching space
SpaceX's Starship rocket failed in space after liftoff. The test flight was a key step in the company's moon mission.
SpaceX's Starship, a spacecraft developed for space travel, was presumed to have failed in its latest test flight. The rocket launched from the Starbase launch site in Texas and reached an altitude of 90km before the Super Heavy booster exploded over the Gulf of Mexico, leading to a loss of contact with the vehicle. This was the second attempt to fly the Starship, with the first ending in failure in April. The goal of the test flight was to demonstrate the spacecraft's capabilities for future missions to the moon and Mars. SpaceX's founder, Elon Musk, envisions the Starship as a key part of the company's launch business and NASA's Artemis program, which aims to return humans to the moon. Despite the setback, SpaceX remains committed to the development of the Starship for future space exploration.
