Another prototype of Elon Musk's Martian spacecraft exploded

Another prototype of Elon Musk’s SpaceX Starship exploded as it landed in U.S. Texas. It was broadcast on Tuesday, February 2, on the company’s YouTube channel.

The footage shows the ship exploding minutes after launch as it touched down on the landing pad.

At the end of January, it was reported that Ilon Musk’s company SpaceX violated the license conditions of the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) during the failed test of the Starship rocket in December 2020, which ended in an explosion.

Starship was designed to fly to the moon and Mars. A prototype rocket exploded on Dec. 10 during a test in Texas, failing to land properly.

In September 2019, Musk unveiled a prototype of a reusable spacecraft capable of carrying cargo and astronauts to Mars and the Moon. The spacecraft was named Starship. Its length is 50 meters, and its mass without fuel and cargo – about 120 tons. During the presentation Musk said that Starship, capable of carrying up to 100 people, could become the basis for the colonization of Mars and the Moon.
