Watch SpaceX Starship SN10 landing and explosion in slow-motion
On Thursday, 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.
A couple of hours ago, Musk shared a tweet of the landing and explosion. “SN10 is in Valhalla now,” Musk said.
