SpaceX’s Starship rocket explodes while landing

The Starship rocket of Elon Musk‘s SpaceX exploded off the coast of Texas on Wednesday while landing after a test launch. The unmanned starship took off at the scheduled time and went straight upwards with the first and second engines starting. After 4 minutes and 45 seconds of flight, the third engine of the rocket was started and the rocket moved towards its expected position. The engine was restarted shortly before landing to slow down the rocket’s speed. However, it crash landed into the earth. Musk tweeted, “Fuel header tank pressure was low during landing burn, causing touchdown velocity to be high & RUD, but we got all the data we needed! Congrats SpaceX team hell yeah!!”
