SpaceX’s first Starship popped its top during a ’pressure test’ in Texas

Reports suggest that while SpaceX has already moved on to manufacturing its next generation of ’Mk3’ Starship frames, the original model popped open during an apparent ’pressure test’ at the company’s Boca Chica, Texas, site two months ago. According to reports, the top flew some 500 feet in the air as cryofluid sprayed everywhere.

Well crap. Better luck in 2020 for a Starship test flight.

I hope that bit isn’t necessary... it’s just shedding weight.

Funny thing is, Space X is heavily funded by China, as well as most of Elon's companies. But instead let the Elon fanboys say how good Space X is.
