Elon Musk says SpaceX is assessing the damage following an explosion during a pressure test at their South Texas launch facility. Yesterday's explosion and fire were seen and felt several miles from the Starship base on Boca Chica Beach. Musk confirmed the explosion in a tweet, saying the blast happened during a "spin start test" of the rocket's engines. SpaceX was reportedly ground testing the booster rocket ahead of this year's possible orbital flight of the Starship prototype.
