SpaceX founder Elon Musk explained the Starship SN10 crash: the rocket had engine problems.

The SN10 engine ran out of power due to a partial ingress of helium from the fuel tank.

Recall that last week, a prototype of the Starship spacecraft being developed by SpaceX for deep space flights, launched from a site in Cameron County in Texas, landed successfully, but exploded a few minutes later.

The leak caused the support to break at a speed of 10 m / s. He noted that due to the impact at a speed of 10 meters per second, the supports and part of the “skirt” broke. At the same time, the entrepreneur emphasized that several fixes for SN11 tests are already being prepared.

The head of Tesla reacted to the publication of photographer Austin Barnar, who noticed that SpaceX employees were checking the rocket’s landing pads. He assumed that they did not turn around properly.

Musk stressed that several fixes are already being prepared for the SN11 tests.
