SpaceX’s 2nd Starship test flight ends with another kaboom
CAPE CANAVERAL, FL (AP) — SpaceX’s second full test flight of its bullet-shaped Starship has ended in another fiery crash landing.
Elon Musk’s company launched its latest Starship prototype from the southeastern tip of Texas on Tuesday.
The shiny stainless steel rocket reached its intended altitude of more than six miles over the Gulf of Mexico.
Everything seemed to be going well as Starship flipped on its side and began its descent. But it never managed to straighten itself back up for a landing and slammed into the ground just like the previous Starship did back in December. Musk is developing Starship to carry people to Mars.
