Starship SN10 | Launch | Belly Flop | Touchdown | Explode!

SpaceX tested another Starship prototype, SN10, to an altitude of 10 km in order to practice its daring belly flop to tail down landing maneuver.

This time the flip was successful utilizing 3 raptor engines, then shutting two down for the final landing exactly as planned.


Unfortunately 3 of the 6 landing legs didn't successfully deployed (as you can see in our footage), alongside a fairly high landing velocity, resulting in an explosion 8 minutes after touching down.
