SpaceX's Starship SN10 Successfully Lands After Amazing Flight. Dismantles Itself Spectacularly.
SpaceX finally proved that Starship's signature freefall and landing maneuver can work as claimed using their full scale SN10 prototype vehicle. The flight replicated the previous attempts by SN8 and SN9 right up to the actual landing where almost everything appeared to go as planned.
I say almost because the vehicle may have touched down a little harder than intended and landing legs failed to deploy. The vehicle eventually exploded on the pad as the propellent tanks ruptured.
Because the SpaceX feed ended we don't have any official footage of the Rapid Unscheduled Second Flight so I'm grateful for the independent videographers who were on the scene to record, and in some cases react to the surprise post credits scene.
