The spectacular explosion of the next-generation Starship spacecraft “SpaceX” minutes after its launched has been described a “successful failure”, with mixed reaction. The excitement and celebration of the commercial spacecraft manufacturing company SpaceX’s employees doing the Spectacular explosion seemed contradicting and confusing.
Bill Nelson NASA administrator in his reaction congratulates SpaceX, he said in a tweet “Every great achievement throughout history has demanded some level of calculated risk, because with great risk comes great reward.”
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg expressed his disappointment of the SpaceX Falcon 9 owned by Elon Musk’s company whose massive blast lead to the destruction of his revolutionary $200million Facebook’s Amos 6 satellite on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Daniel Dumbacher, executive director of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautic, said “Government programs are not allowed to operate that way because of that, because of the way we have all the stakeholders being able to watch over and tell you no.”
The brief uncrewed test flight was launched from the company’s Boca Chica launchpad near Brownsville, Texas on 20th April. A Scenario which Space reporter Joey Roulette described as business formula that serves Elon Musk Company well.
The mission plan was for the Starship to soar into space at least 90 some miles (150 km) above Earth before it would re-enter the atmosphere and plunge into the Pacific near Hawaii.Follow us on social media
