Back in December 2020, SpaceX staged a test in which it launched a rocket that’s meant to one day bring us closer to Mars than ever before. Then, on its way back down to earth, it exploded.
When it comes to ambitious test flights like that of the 16-story-tall SN8 Starship, “success” is relative. Even after the prototype exploded, SpaceX deemed the record-setting height the rocket ascended to a triumph, with CEO Elon Musk tweeting out a celebratory, “Mars, here we come!!”
But it seems not everyone was as enthused about the Starship’s blaze of glory.
Mars, here we come!!
