SpaceX's Starship reaches new heights in monumental test flight but is now lost

·1 min

A SpaceX Starship rocket launched on its third test flight from a facility in Texas. It achieved multiple milestones before likely breaking apart. The team lost communication with the rocket during reentry and deemed it lost. SpaceX considers the Starship system crucial for its mission to carry humans to Mars. NASA has chosen Starship as the landing vehicle for its Artemis III mission to the moon. Despite the failure, SpaceX frames it as normal during these early test flights and aims to gather data to improve the Starship for future missions.
