A prototype of a SpaceX Starship rocket, which aims to put humans onto Mars, touched down successfully for the first time on Wednesday, but exploded shortly after landing.

The Starship SN10 spacecraft was launched on Wednesday evening after a series of delays from SpaceX's site in Boca Chica, Texas, and managed to climb to 10,000 meters in just over four minutes as planned. EFE-EPA
