Elon Musk to relaunch SN15 as soon as possible
Elon Musk wants to quickly re-launch the unmanned prototype of the Mars rocket from the American space company SpaceX, he reports on Twitter on Friday. The rocket landed safely on Thursday after a test flight and did not explode afterwards.

Starship SN15 was launched from SpaceX space base in Boca Chica, Texas. The rocket ascended to about 10 kilometers altitude, before turning horizontally and going into free fall. After that fall, the engines were reignited, the spacecraft turned back to a vertical position, and the rocket landed safely on the ground.

Musk writes that the rocket wants to make a test flight "quickly". When exactly this will happen, it is still unclear.

SpaceX is the company of Musk, who is also the CEO of Tesla car manufacturer. SpaceX is currently bringing cargo and astronauts to the International Space Station ISS, but the company's goal is to facilitate the colonization of the planet Mars.

Starship must become the spacecraft that 'sets foot' on the Red Planet. The rocket will also allow commercial flights to the moon.
