Elon Musk’s Starship rocket sprayed debris over Texas coast, damaged car parked miles away

Shocking videos posted online show Elon Musk's doomed Starship rocket spraying debris all over the southern Texas coast as it powered off the launchpad.

The massive 395-foot rocket powered into the air from sunny Boca Chica, Texas Thursday morning, but burst into flames just four minutes after takeoff.

The explosion sent debris flying at thousands of miles an hour, damaging a car parked miles away and sending a dust cloud over the Gulf of Mexico on an otherwise sunny day.

Footage from thousands of feet away shows the dust cloud slowly engulfing the area, sending debris flying and sending palm trees swaying in the heavy winds before it ultimately starts to dissipate.

Pictures also showed the colossal crater and wrecked launch pad left in the rocket’s wake.

The Federal Aviation Administration has now grounded all of SpaceX’s Starship rockets as it investigates the failed launch.
