In February, a prototype of SpaceX’s Starship rocket, SN9, blew up on its final descent, like SN8 before it. The SN9 was a test model being developed to carry humans and 100 tons of cargo on future missions to the moon and Mars.

Elon Musk, who also leads several futuristic companies, including Tesla Inc., Neuralink and Boring Company, had last month said that SpaceX will be landing its Starship rockets on Mars well before 2030.
