The projects of SpaceX are undergoing considerable development and Elon Musk’s company continues to conduct tests to evaluate progress. In a recent test, a Starship prototype exploded at the top!

This unsuccessful experience has already had an official statement from the Space company, which stated that this was relatively expected given the ongoing test.

SpaceX is one of the most amazing companies today, having a well-defined space mission project with steady progress. Being a very complex area and of extreme sensitivity, sometimes tests occur that the outcome is not desired.

Such problems are not unheard-of in Elon Musk’s company, which has been very active in his projects. Crew Dragon, Falcon 9 and Starship are crucial elements of the company’s goals and have been constantly tested to verify developments.

“SpaceX Starship Mk1 version will be replaced by a new and more advanced version” – Elon Musk 

In a recent test, the top of the Starship exploded, spewing cryogenic propellants into a spreading cloud. Elon Musk was quick to react and has already made known on Twitter that that prototype, the Starship Mk1 version, will be replaced by a new, more advanced version with the latest technologies from the company.

In a statement, the company made known that such an outcome was not entirely unexpected. The test aimed to study the limits of the systems and, therefore, were pressed to the maximum level.

“The goal of today’s test was to push systems to the maximum so that the result was not completely unexpected. There were no injuries, nor does it represent a serious setback”

After this incident, developments will continue like this! Let’s wait and see what the Starship Mk3 version has in store for us and how it will boost SpaceX’s space mission.
