Amazing movie from the moment of landing the Starship prototype and its explosion On December 9, just before midnight Polish time, SpaceX carried out an almost fully successful maiden flight of another Starship prototype, designated SN8. The landing looked spectacular.

The video shows all the details of the ship's structure, and even the moment of using the aerodynamic surfaces and firing the engines, as it approaches the landing pad of the SpaceX test facility in Boca Chica, Texas. In the final phase of the flight, there was a problem with the top fuel tank and one of the Raptor engines failed. The result of this in the video is the green color of the flames coming out of one of the engines.

As a result of the failure, the engine system did not have enough power to brake the heavy rocket, which resulted in it hitting the landing pad and a spectacular explosion. Elon Musk tweeted that the engineers already know how to fix the problem, so soon we will be able to see another prototype called SN9 in the sky.

The head cinema scanner the SpaceX company also announced that the first unmanned flight to the Red Planet will take place in 2024, and a manned flight in 2026. Both will be realized using the Starship ship and the SuperHeavy rocket. But it is not everything. Already in 2022, we can witness a manned flight around the moon. The Japanese billionaire and his friends are to go on such a journey.
