Watch SpaceX Starship SN10 rocket landed in one piece; then exploded after landing
Earlier today, SpaceX’s Starship SN10 prototype aborted the first launch attempt due to what Elon Musk describes as “slightly conservative high thrust limit and increasing thrust limit.” Three hours later, the SpaceX team retried the launch and successfully landed the Starship SN10 in one piece.
Then about three minutes after landing, SN10 exploded on its landing pad. It was unclear what caused the Starship to explode after landing. SpaceX Livestream cut out the video of the explosion.
Below is a webcast of the launch and landing.
