The explosion of Elon Musk’s SpaceX spaceship rocket, the very first “out-of-the-world” venture drew suggestions and criticisms alike from experts including Musk himself. Towing the same lines as the founder of the SpaceX company that sent their first space rocket, experts confirm that the age-old saying “Failure is the pillar of success” applies to this mission as well since valuable lessons have been learned from this failure. However, as far as Elon Musk is concerned, who opines that this explosion of failure will be the platform for future success, it remains to be seen if the comments can actually be taken at face value or if it is just a positive outlook to an unprecedented failure.
SpaceX – Delving deep into the explosion
Images of the Starship tumbling out of control some 20 miles up in the sky while mounted to its Super Heavy rocket booster before the combined vehicle blew to bits dominated news media coverage of the highly anticipated launch.
The spokesperson confirm that the explosion of the SpaceX rocket happened due to the malfunction of several Super Heavy’s 33 powerful Rapot Engines happened to malfunction during the ascent. Also, the anticipated functioning that was tabled as a part of the blueprint, failed to live up to its theoretical expectations in practice. But SpaceX company executives including Musk – the founder, CEO and chief engineer of the California-based rocket company – hailed the test flight for achieving the major objective of getting the vehicle off the ground while providing a wealth of data that will advance Starship’s development.
Starship is designed to carry passengers to the moon and Mars as part of NASA’s Artemis program, and eventually will take 100 people on long-duration, interplanetary flights. In fact, the Starship of SpaceX will be so cost-effective, it will eventually be able to deliver about 100 tons of cargo to any planet in the solar system, such as Mars, for as little as $50 million.
