SpaceX's Latest Rocket Test Ended With A Bang And Elon Musk Was Hyped (VIDEO)

SpaceX and Elon Musk took another large step towards Mars in yesterday's test flight despite a somewhat major hiccup at the end.

Their latest "Starship 8" rocket, simply titled the SN8, took to the skies yesterday with a goal of performing a never-before-seen landing flip maneuver.

While it shot into the air at incredible speeds and stunned viewers with its miraculous in-air flip, the landing ended up being the real spectacle after it exploded on impact, and Elon Musk was actually hyped.

Mars, here we come!! Elon Musk

The SN8 rocket launched from the companies private launch pad in Cameron County, Texas, which is also now where Elon Musk now calls home.

The SpaceX founder even gave the small South Texas county a new nickname that is guaranteed to give space-nuts chills.

Musk and SpaceX are now looking forward to their next test flight of the Starship 9 as they continue on their highly-anticipated mission of sending humans to Mars.

"Thank you to all the locals supporting our efforts in Cameron County and beyond. Congratulations to the entire Starship and SpaceX teams on today’s test! Serial number 9 (SN9) is up next – Mars, here we come!" said SpaceX
