Watch the SpaceX Starship explode in stunning telescope footage (video)

The second test flight of SpaceX’s Starship was an eye-catching ride.

The massive Starship rocket blasted off on Saturday (November 18) for the second time ever, blasting off from SpaceX’s Starbase facility in Boca Chica, Texas. The rocket’s 400-foot (122 m) super-heavy booster exploded shortly after stage separation, while the Starship’s upper stage reached an altitude of 91 miles (148 km), well above 62 miles (100 km). The frontiers of space before it have also seen what SpaceX refers to as “rapid unscheduled disassembly.”
