(Boca Chica and Medford Colonia) Shortly after taking off in Texas, the huge Starship rocket, developed by SpaceX for trips to the Moon and Mars, exploded in flight, according to the company’s video broadcast.

This explosion does not represent a failure for billionaire Elon Musk’s company, the fact that the rocket managed to take off from its launch pad already represents a huge success. The cause of the explosion was not yet known.

More details to come.
