it didn’t achieve orbit, so it self destructed lol.

    achieve orbit wasn’t the goal for this very first test flight

Bang bang here goes the ship

I’m not a rocket scientist, but having the entire rocket go boom is a bad thing, right?

    For a rocket?
    Not necessarily.


    You could see from the get go there were problems. It lumbered off the pad. You could see not all the engines were firing in concert. “All the rest is icing…” Or your public relations scripted comment, if it went awry after getting off the pad.

    Not if you are a an Elon lover.


They probably hit the destruct button, realising the fuel laden flying bomb could land anywhere.

    It was well over the ocean by the time they lost control I assume the avionics computer decided to self-terminate

So this is how the Kerbals feel when the kraken attacks.

They are more excited than Apple employees at iPhone launch day 2007


The fact that it even went of the launch pad is already a massive success


Wow ❤


Clearly, it failed.😂


What and incredible achievement for the first test launch on this platform…absolutely stunning work by the SpaceX Team!!!

Back to drawing board I am looking forward to space cargo shipping service in the near future


2:25 the fuse for stage sep exploded but no separation.


Everyone asking why they’re cheering after it blew up – this was a test flight. The fact that it exploded means there was an issue, and the next model of the starship will likely have a different issue. Eventually after testing for a while there will be no more issues to fix. This is how they do things. Getting the ship off the launch pad was their goal for this launch, and they went above and beyond. Everything here was deserving of celebration!

It’s but a minor hiccup. Incredible work and keep pushing forward. Don’t be phased at all.
