Getting to space is hard, and SpaceX is working through some kinks early in the process of developing its next-generation Starship that it hopes will eventually take legions of humans to Mars.
Video from sources with a view of the company's Boca Chica, Texas, development facility showed Starship prototype "SN1" apparently exploding during a pressure test Friday.
NASA Spaceflight reported that the partial rocket failed during a cryogenic pressure test after one of its tanks filled with liquid nitrogen
The company is still working toward the next test flight of Starship in the coming months, which will aim to send it to serious altitude for the first time, up to about 12.4 miles (20 km).
