Elon Musk’s ambition to launch the largest rocket ever built into space has experienced a disastrous outing.
Starship, built by his company SpaceX is experimenting initial plans to take passengers to the moon and Mars.
But the attempted launch on Thursday exploded just before the rocket could make it into space in what was described as “a rapid unscheduled disassembly”.
This comes after the initial date of the launch (Monday April 17) was postponed due to a pressurization problem
The company had earlier said any takeoff from the launch pad will be considered as huge success.
