SpaceX Starship Prototype Destroyed During Test

SpaceX has big plans for its Starship heavy rocket which was unveiled last year. Alas, yesterday’s test did not go as planned and the Starship prototype was destroyed. If this seems like deja vu, it’s because a similar incident happened in December. In fact, this is the third prototype that’s been destroyed during testing. Despite the rocket’s destruction, SpaceX reports the data gathered during the testing was invaluable for the project moving forward. There’s already another prototype on the way.
