According to a report, the Starship capsule was to separate from the first-stage rocket booster three minutes after the flight, but it could not separate and the rocket exploded.
“It looks like they’ve gotten through the first stage of this big monster rocket,” Nelson told CNN. This is a real achievement. We’ll get a report on what happened with the second phase, but I’m very encouraged that they’ve come this far.
