FAA closes investigation into 2nd flight of SpaceX’s Starship megarocket


The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has closed the investigation into the second flight of SpaceX’s huge Starship vehicle, the agency announced this afternoon (Feb. 26).

That test mission, which launched from SpaceX‘s Starbase site in South Texas on Nov. 18, ended with a bang. Two bangs, actually: Both of Starship‘s stages exploded high above Earth, around 3.5 minutes and eight minutes after liftoff, respectively.
