Watch as SpaceX Starship rocket goes up in flames

Dramatic footage shows the unmanned test capsule blowing up as it smashed into the ground having soared to 40,000ft, in its first high-altitude flight. 


However, it gained too much speed to land successfully, and went out in explosive flames. The Starship milestone on Wednesday puts SpaceX closer to replacing its Falcon spacecrafts. 

About two minutes after launching, one of the Starship's three Raptor engines gave out. A minute later, a second engine cut off, but the prototype rocket continued its journey upward. 

The Starship lost its third engine around four-and-a-half minutes into the flight, and the rocket moved to a horizontal position and pointed back down towards Earth. 

As the Starship got closer to the ground, its engines fired up again and flipped it back into a vertical position and slowed it down. The prototype still landed at a faster than ideal speed, causing it to explode. 

According to thesun, its website, SpaceX wrote that the flight was "designed to test a number of objectives, from how the vehicle’s three Raptor engines perform to the overall aerodynamic entry capabilities of the vehicle (including its body flaps) to how the vehicle manages propellant transition."

Live Webcam captures Two UFOs entering Popocatépetl Volcano, Mexico

On December 6, 2020 the live webcamdemexico monitoring the Popocatépetl volcano in Mexico captured in a short time two cigar-shaped UFOs entering the crater of the volcano.  A UFO apparently descends into the crater, four minutes later, a second UFO follows the first one disappearing into the crater of the volcano too.  This volcano has been a UFO hotspot for years with hundreds of reports of UFOs flying over as well as entering and exiting the crater and so far, there is no explanation for all these strange activities around the Popocatépetl Volcano.

Shapeshifting Humanoid Flying Over Ohio?

A strange black humanoid-like object hovering in the sky over Chillicothe, Ohio. The figure changing directions and changes shapes.  Back in 2019 (2019-05-17) the witness noticed something in the sky hovering around on which he pulled out his camera and recorded what he saw.  To see the strange object better, he zoomed in, watched it, zoomed out and zoomed in again. It was that moment the black figure started changing shapes.  Since the figure was far away in the sky he didn't get a good look at it until he went inside his house to get a better look out of the light and what he saw was something unexplainable.

Three huge UFOs recorded while crossing the Orion Nebula

There seems to be a lot of UFO activity in deep space. Last week a sky-watcher captured a huge cigar-shaped craft passing the Orion Nebula and now another sky-watcher, Peter Tiagunov recorded three interstellar craft crossing the Orion Nebula.  The images shows the three UFOs emerging from the center of the Nebula flying further through space in a triangular formation.  The question is whether these UFOs are of alien origin or whether they belong to the secret space program, that includes a fleet of spaceships equipped with a technology far beyond what current aerospace technology is capable of.  Peter captured the UFOs with a Telescope: RC 10" (x.75 reducer) - Mount: EQ6R-Pro - Camera: QHY 163M Cooled (no filters).
