  • For the third time in a row, the SpaceX Starship rocket failed to land.

  • The SN-10 first lands successfully.

  • But minutes later the missile explodes.

Minutes after landing in Texas, an unmanned prototype of a new SpaceX rocket exploded. In a video broadcast by the company on Wednesday, flames erupted from the SN-10 rocket after it was initially successfully touched down after a test flight. It is the third failed landing of the Starship missile in a row.

The company initially made no statement about the failure. In early February, the previous model, the SN-9, went up in flames upon landing. SpaceX founder Elon Musk hopes that one day the rocket will be able to transport people and cargo to Mars. The company has already established itself in space travel with the Falcon-9 rocket and sent its first manned mission to the International Space Station last November.
