The prototype of SpaceX’s Starship rocket has managed to land successfully during a flight test, carried out this Wednesday in Boca Chica (Texas).

The prototype of SpaceX’s Starship rocket has managed to land successfully during a flight test, carried out this Wednesday in Boca Chica (Texas), after four consecutive failed attempts since last December, which ended in explosions, indicates RT.

The spacecraft, dubbed ‘SN15’, reached an altitude of about 10 kilometers and performed a series of flight maneuvers, a live broadcast showed.

However, shortly after landing a small fire engulfed the 50-meter base of the rocket. John Insprucker , the company’s main integration engineer, explained that this “is not unusual with the methane fuel” used by the ship, adding that specialists are still solving design problems, according to AFP.

“Landing of the nominal ship!” Elon Musk, founder and CEO of SpaceX, posted on his Twitter account.
