Watch: SpaceX Starship launch makes history as world's most powerful rocket blasts …
Elon Musk's SpaceX company have once again attempted to launch the world's biggest rocket, Starship, but lost contact within eight minutes of takeoff.
The launch from site near Boca Chica in Texas, east of Brownsville, did see the rocket reach space for the first time but despite its super heavy booster still experienced what is called "a rapid unscheduled disassembly" - or to put it bluntly - it blew up.
SpaceX's livestream host John Insprucker said during the broadcast: "We have lost the data from the second stage... we think we may have lost the second stage."
Despite losing the rocket and the obvious explosion the launch has still been hailed as a success by SpaceX and far more progress was made then the first test that they carried out in April, when another 'rapid unschedueled disassmbly' occured.
Although it went well from SpaceX and Elon Musk's perspective people couldn't help but be amused by the use of the 'rapid unschedueld disassembly' terminology, with many mocking Musk himself.
Space Karen strikes again.
rapid unscheduled disassembly lol
\u201cThat was Elon Destroys Stars, by Saccharine Trust, from a new SST records compilation called Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly. Very good stuff, boys. And here\u2019s the second in our session by Cud.\u201d
Rapid unscheduled disassembly
shout out to whoever came up with \u201crapid unscheduled disassembly\u201d
The Empire has released a statement calling this a rapid unscheduled disassembly. It's second in a span of a few years.\n\n#SpaceX
Ironically Twitter advertising is also experiencing a rapid unscheduled disassembly
So Elon\u2019s rocket suffered a \u201crapid unscheduled disassembly\u201d allegedly\u2026
\u201cRapid unscheduled disassembly\u201d is the perfect description for Musk\u2019s public image.
Meanwhile, Musk is facing his own problems on X/Twitter after it was discovered that the platform had helped promote pro-Nazi and anti-semitic material alongside big name advertisers on the site.
This prompted IBM, one of the biggest brands on X/Twitter, to pull all the adverts from the site. In response Musk has threatened to drop a 'thermonuclear lawsuit' on US media watchdog, Media Matters, who had released the damaging data.
