SpaceX successfully tested its Starship SN10 rocket prototype after two recent failed attempts, although it exploded six minutes after landing.

The rocket prototype flew up to an altitude of 10,000 kilometers and then landed on the ground, although it was not completely vertical; the explosion occurred after the engine cooling procedure.

The test launch is considered successful because the goal was to gather information on how the flaps work to control the rocket when it is horizontal as it descends back to the ground.

SpaceX is developing a space transportation system consisting of a fully reusable Super Heavy launch vehicle and a Starship spacecraft.

The system will allow the sending of satellites, crews, and cargo to the orbit near the Earth as well as to the Moon and Mars.

In February, the prototype Starship crashed and caught fire while attempting to land, making it the second time the test flight ended in an explosion.
