SpaceX’s Starship prototype rocket exploded minutes after landing for the first time following a high-altitude flight test on Wednesday. This was the third test flight of the prototype of the Starship rocket, which Elon Musk hopes one day to send to Mars. The SpaceX's rockets had exploded on landing on earlier two attempts in December and February. The video of the test flight showed the rocket making a clean landing, and then exploding into flames within minutes. Elon Musk called it an honourable discharge.
