The test flight to about 12 kilometres (40,000 feet) was conducted at SpaceX’s facility in Boca Chica, Texas, on Wednesday, and was initially going fine before something went wrong, apparently due to an engine malfunction.
Since it was a test flight, no crew was on board, luckily, and the area nearby was cleared from people prior to the launch.
