SpaceX took an important step last week and launched its Starship rocket into space with a live broadcast. These moments, which are important not only for the company but also for humanity, were broadcast live on YouTube. Although the launch was successful, SpaceX’s Starship rocket exploded in a very short time .
The explosion of the rocket was also on the agenda on social media. Frankly, it was not clear why the rocket exploded. The explanations on the subject were not too late and it was revealed why the rocket exploded.
SpaceX’s Starship Rocket Intentionally Exploded
According to the share made by the company, the rocket was deliberately detonated. Although the rocket was launched successfully , after reaching an altitude of 38 km , a few of the engines failed.
For this reason , there was a loss of altitude and the rocket started to do somersaults by losing its balance. The mission was also stopped in a controlled manner and a controlled explosion was carried out.
It should be noted that no one was injured during the test at the Texas Boca Chica launch site . We are already talking about a controlled explosion . The designated areas are those that have been emptied prior to launch and have been prepared for all scenarios.
SpaceX considers this trial a successful one, despite the rocket detonating. Because in the test in question, the criterion was determined as the ignition and take-off of the rocket. The rocket took off as expected and moved on its expected course at a certain distance.
The trials, which are planned for the better, will be done again very soon. It is stated that SpaceX will continue Starship tests in a few months . We’ll see what the target will be this time. For those who want to watch the live broadcast footage, we have also added the video below.
