Explosions after SpaceX launch
SpaceX launched its mega rocket Starship, but lost both the booster and the spacecraft in a pair of explosions minutes into Saturday’s test flight. The rocket ship reached space following liftoff from South Texas before communication suddenly was lost. SpaceX officials said it appears the ship’s self-destruct system blew it up over the Gulf of Mexico. Minutes earlier, the separated booster had exploded over the gulf. By then, its job was done.
