Elon Musk reveals why Starship exploded during November test flight

SpaceX’s giant Starship rocket apparently performed better on its second-ever test flight than its explosive end would suggest.

The mission launched from SpaceX’s Starbase site in South Texas on Nov. 18 of last year. It ended about eight minutes after liftoff, when Starship’s upper-stage spacecraft (called, somewhat confusingly, Starship), detonated high in the Texas sky.
