Starship finally lands without exploding in major milestone towards Mars

SpaceX has successfully completed the latest test of its Mars-bound Starship spacecraft, marking another milestone towards Elon Musk’s Mars ambitions.

The high-altitude test of Starship SN10 was the first major flight test of a Starhip prototype to land on the launchpad, with both SN8 and SN9 both crashing in a fiery explosion upon landing.

The test took place at SpaceX’s Boca Chica facility in Texas on Wednesday following several delays.

The earliest crewed Starship missions are planned for 2023, with Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa already booked in for a flight around the moon.

The first crewed missions to Mars could then occur either in 2024 or 2026 at the earliest, according to Mr Musk.
