The new generation spacecraft, which the US space and aviation company SpaceX planned to send to Mars, carried out the high-altitude flight test of the Starship, and the vehicle, which managed to land vertically on the launch platform, exploded after waiting for a while.

The new generation giant spacecraft Starship, on which SpaceX performed its third high-altitude flight trial, exploded with a loud noise after a successful test flight, although it made a vertical and soft landing on the platform, after a while, as a result of the growth of the flames seen in the engine compartment.

Unlike other vehicles, Elon Musk, the founder and CEO of the space company, developed the giant-sized Startship with the dream of sending dozens of people to Mars at the same time.

It was shared that the explosion that took place on the test platform near the Mexican border of Texas was caused by a leak in the fuel tank.

The first attempt of the SN10 flight during the day was automatically canceled one second before the launch due to a problem in the computer system.
