Starship by SpaceX has been successfully launched few minutes ago! It made history as the world’s biggest space launch and most powerful rocket ever built.
From its base in Boca Chica, Texas, the largest and most potent rocket ever made was launched.
Just before the launch was granted the final go-ahead minutes later, there were anxious scenes as it was stopped with two seconds left.
As the rocket slowly lifted off in a massive column of smoke, SpaceX personnel applauded.
A frozen valve forced Monday’s planned launch to be aborted with just moments left, businessman Musk said.
The rocket is being tested with the hope that it would one day usher in an era of interplanetary travel.
The mission is intended to fly the majority of the way around the Planet when it eventually takes off.
But, the booster’s attempt to separate from the upper stage was when everything started to go awry. The booster began to tumble, and then, suddenly, it vanished.
SpaceX refers to this as a quick, unplanned dismantling. The business won’t label this a failure, even if they wanted the test to go further.
Even after the rocket disintegrated, there were applause at SpaceX HQ. The fact that the rocket launched is a positive beginning; they will analyze what went well and what went wrong before trying again.

However, Elon Musk’s SpaceX firm – which is trying to develop a re-usable space vehicle – declared today’s unmanned test flight a success, because the rocket did clear the tower.
“Teams will continue to review data and work toward our next flight test,” SpaceX say.
“With a test like this, success comes from what we learn, and today’s test will help us improve Starship’s reliability as SpaceX seeks to make life multi-planetary.”
