On Tuesday, the unmanned SpaceX Starship SN9 was attempting to land back on Earth when things went… awry.
SpaceX Starship SN9 exploded yesterday while attempting to land and Cosmic Perspective captured the whole thing in slow motion.
High-speed cameras were rolling during the SpaceX Starship SN9 test flight in South Texas. For this mission we positioned a camera focusing exclusively on the landing pad to capture all the action during the last few moment of decent. The rest was history.
This is truly incredible footage.
The video is below the fold, if you’re interested. And the Starship was unmanned.
