    SpaceX Starship Test Flight 2 - Feb 18, 2023

    This is the second test flight of this unmanned rocket, which is the largest rocket to ever lift off from the planet.
    The first test flight didn't go so good and I think there were rocket engines that failed.

    This flight did go good as far as the lift off and the Booster separation. There was however an incident with the Booster rocket which was suppose to splash land somewhere off the Mexican coast. But it never did get there. The Booster separation went well , but seems there was a 'Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly Event' (an explosion), which happened just after separation.
    Then not sure what happened but they lost signal from the starship and seems they may not know where it will be coming down after re-entry, which was suppose to be in the Pacific Ocean in the area of Hawaii someplace.

    But even with loosing the ship (or whatever happened there) and that Booster 'explosion', (I mean that Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly Event), they are calling this mission as a success.

    *Lift off at time stamp approx --> 37:00
    *Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly Event at time stamp approx --> 40:00
