    All of you probably know how the test launch of Starship ended. But what was the reason it crushed? Was the test successful for Space X, notwithstanding the final landing part?

    According to Musk, the test was a success, save that it crashed due to not enough fuel left, I think. But you can look this up just as easily as I can.

    According to the information I found, The reason given was that the fuel tank pressure was too low, apparently giving inadequate thrust during the final braking phase which was otherwise optimally timed.
