SpaceX's Starship rocket lifted off in Southern Texas yesterday, and while it ended up exploding to the surprise of spectators both local and those from all around the world, the spacecraft manufacturer and satellite communications corporation founded by Elon Musk has labeled the test a successful one, per a news post that has been shared on the official SpaceX site. "With a test like this, success comes from what we learn, and we learned a tremendous amount about the vehicle and ground systems today that will help us improve on future flights of Starship," a portion of the post reads. SpaceX's Starship, which comprises the Starship spacecraft and the Super Heavy booster, blew up four minutes into the flight, as can be seen in the official flight test video below that SpaceX shared, although no injuries or property damage reportedly occurred.

The rocket that spontaneously disassembled itself is considered a success? ****ing PR people.
My favorite part of this news was the statement that the starship experienced a "rapid unscheduled disassembly"
