SpaceX Starship SN9 prototype rocket explodes on landing after clean flight

In a repeat of a malfunction that destroyed the SpaceX’s Starship SN8 test rocket, its latest SN9 prototype rocket also exploded while landing after a test-launch from Boca Chica, Texas.

The FAA approved SN9’s test just hours before the launch.
