Watch the SpaceX Starship prototype successfully land (and then explode)

The SpaceX Starship SN10 successfully lifted off and landed — and then exploded — as the sun set over Texas on Wednesday. You can see the explosion in the tweet below from NASASpaceflight.

The SN10 prototype of SpaceX’s promised reusable, heavy-load spacecraft rocketed up six miles into the sky before flipping, falling, and maneuvering back softly to the ground. The company described it as a “successful soft touchdown” on its livestream.
