In the video, the giant SpaceX rocket exploded minutes after it was launched

The giant Starship rocket from SpaceX exploded after it was launched on its first test orbital flight Thursday.

The missile exploded 4 minutes after its launch, and the American billionaire Elon Musk published a video of the missile launch, and said that the next test of the giant missile will be several months later.

SpaceX postponed the rocket launch last Monday due to a technical issue with the first-stage launch booster. The delay was announced just a few minutes before the scheduled launch time.

The length of the giant Starship missile is approximately 120 meters. The company, owned by billionaire Elon Musk, had planned to launch it from the southern tip of Texas, near the Mexican border.

He described the missile as the largest and most powerful of its kind ever. Starship does not carry astronauts or satellites.

In the future, the company plans to use the Starship rocket to carry astronauts and cargo to the moon, in preparation for other trips that will eventually reach Mars.
