SpaceX successfully launched and landed its Starship prototype, the SN15, on Wednesday in south Texas a day after its original planned launch was scrubbed at the last minute.
The latest iteration of the Starship to take to the sky is part of a line of next-generation boosters designed to transport cargo and passengers to the moon and Mars in the future. The previous four prototypes all successfully reached the desired altitude but crashed at landing.
While a small fire could be seen at the base of the ship after it landed, a SpaceX official said it was not unusual given the methane fuel the ship was carrying, but stressed it was successfully launched and landed.
