#Video | Prototype spaceship Starship exploded during tests

Test pattern ship Starship Mk1

as head of the companies, SpaceX, and Tesla, is today one of the most famous people of our planet. This is not surprising, because electric cars finally became popular, and space rockets . Probably founded by the owner of the company again and again surprise us with his achievements. At the moment, the company SpaceX is developing a huge spaceship Starship to fly to the moon, Mars and other planets. The engineers have collected two sample test aircraft, one of which recently exploded during the test. But Elon Musk remains calm and the question arises — why?

According to the newspaper , 20 November the company decided to test the integrity of the spacecraft on a test sample called Starship Mk1. The test did not go as smoothly as we would like — after beginning the SpaceX private spaceport in Texas explosion and the ship tore off her top.

You might think that the company SpaceX has again experienced a setback, but why is Elon Musk so calm? In the businessman explained that in the past the tests they originally wanted to increase the pressure in the ship's systems. According to him, it turns out that they from the start were ready for a possible explosion, so it was not a surprise to them. Besides, during the explosion no one was injured and it did not cause severe damage to nearby objects.

Also Elon Musk that exploded the rocket Starship Mk1 they are not going to repair. The fact that it was meant only to check certain systems of the aircraft and at the moment he has fulfilled all that was required of him. Instead of repairing it, the company will concentrate its forces on the Assembly of a new test sample Starship Mk3, which is better than the previous two options.

It is Noteworthy that a prototype Starship Mk1 was presented recently, at the end of September 2019. Then the company representatives were assured that at the end of the year it will be used for test flights . In principle, the failure of this intention because of the incident of the explosion may be the only cause for concern Elon musk. In all other respects, the company's business is going well — in aircraft testing, it is possible to use the following prototype called Starship Mk2.
