Elon Musk’s SpaceX Prototype Rocket Explodes In Crash Landing


I don’t shit about rockets but I’m pretty sure that’s not supposed to happen…

According to CNN, Elon Musk’s SpaceX launched a prototype rocket this afternoon in Texas which climbed approximately 40,000 feet before attempting to land. However, during the landing, something went wrong and the entire rocket exploded into a blaze of fire.

Nobody was in the rocket, but either way, seems like Elon was happy with the test.

Musk hopes that this technology will lead to super-fast air travel (i.e. United States to Australia in a matter of hours) and eventually bring humans to Mars.

Pretty damn cool, eh?

But… we’re not quite ready yet…
