Washington (Uttam Hindu News): Elon Musk owned SpaceX company launched its mega rocket Starship on Saturday. But just minutes into the test flight, the booster and then the spacecraft were lost. The first test flight in April ended in an explosion shortly after launch. According to the information, during the second test flight on Saturday, the booster sent the rocketship towards space. But communications were lost 10 minutes after takeoff from South Texas. SpaceX then announced that the vehicle had failed.
The problem arose when the Starship’s engines were almost turned on to take it on its way around the world. The booster exploded 10 minutes after launch, causing the test to fail. At four hundred feet tall, Starship is the largest and most powerful rocket ever built.
Congratulations team! @SpaceX team!

SpaceX’s huge new rocket lifted off on a test flight from the Brownsville Launch Pad in Boca Chica, South Texas on Saturday, seven months after the first try ended in an explosion. A hundred and twenty-one-meter Starship rocket thundered into the sky and flew over the Gulf of Mexico. The goal was to separate the spacecraft from its booster and send it into space.
SpaceX was aiming for an altitude of 150 miles (240 kilometers), enough to send the pill-shaped spacecraft around the world before landing in the Pacific Ocean near Hawaii about an hour and a half after takeoff, a Was less than perfect class.
Starship is the largest and most powerful rocket ever built. Its first flight in April lasted four minutes, with debris falling into the bay. Since then, Elon Musk’s company has made dozens of improvements to the booster and its 33 engines, as well as the launch pad. A company broadcaster said the 90-minute flight to space was planned from the Musk-owned company’s Starbase launch site near Boca Chica, Texas, but contact was lost about 10 minutes after takeoff.
“We have lost data from the second stage,” SpaceX livestream host John Insprucker said. We think we may have missed the second step. Earlier this launch was scheduled to take place on Friday, but due to a malfunction in a part of the rocket, the flight was postponed to Saturday. This was an unmanned test flight.
