The Starship launch is the largest commercial space launch SpaceX has ever seen. The first test run of a futuristic spaceship aboard a giant super-heavy rocket has attracted global interest.

On April 20, 2023, when the rocket lifted off from the launch pad in Boca Chica, Texas, amid a cloud of smoke and dust, it heralded a new era of space exploration.

But not for long.

Starship’s first launch was planned to see the rocket make an orbit around Earth before re-entering Earth’s atmosphere and landing in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
