The launch of the second integrated flight test (IFT-2) of SpaceX Starship, the largest rocket in history, took place on November 18.
Despite the days that had passed, SpaceX had not yet published a video summary of the launch, which failed when the booster module exploded 3 minutes and 21 seconds into the flight. The Starship was lost five minutes later. Until now, SpaceX had only published a short 360º video that we already saw here. Today the day finally arrived. Less than an hour ago SpaceX published its video with the best of that launch, and it must be said that the wait has been worth it. The video is spectacular, almost 2 minutes of pure visual poetry:
