SpaceX Starship 'Rapidly Disassembles' After Launch


BOCA CHICA, TX – The SpaceX Starship came apart over the Gulf of Mexico on Thursday morning during the massive rockets first test flight. 

Starship, designed by Elon Musk and his team of scientists and engineers, was built in hopes of finding a way to expand our population to another planet. The ship has a capacity of 100 people and the rations to make it to the moon, mars, and beyond.

With that amount of cargo, this is Space X's and as of now the world's biggest passenger rocket.  The 400 foot rocket has a payload capacity of over 100 tons. Space X's hoped this would be enough to get the rocket off the ground and into space. 

Unfortunately, the rocket got off the ground but failed to detach with its initial boosters and exploded over the Gulf of Mexico. Despite what they called "rapidly disassembly" the Space X crew was happy enough getting the Starship off of the ground.

Starship will be a way for space travel. For now however our bus out of here has exploded.
