At 9:28 a.m. ET on Thursday, SpaceX's Starship, the most potent rocket ever constructed, launched from a launch site off the coast of South Texas, but it burst into flames before stage separation.
The vehicle made its historic debut flight on Thursday. As if the flight test wasn't thrilling enough, Starship underwent a quick, unforeseen disassembly prior to stage separation, according to a tweet from SpaceX.
Riding atop the launcher, the Starship spaceship soared over the Gulf of Mexico. The Super Heavy rocket booster was planned to use up the majority of its fuel about two and a half.
