‘Mars is looking real’: SpaceX’s test rocket makes 1st flight, landing upright

The flight lasted barely 45 seconds and reached just 500 feet (150 meters) Tuesday night at the southeastern tip of Texas near Brownsville, but was an important first for SpaceX’s Starship. Some earlier tests ended in explosions on the pad.

Look out, Mars!:3 spacecraft headed to the Red Planet this month

he three nearly simultaneous launches - that of the UAE, China and the US - are no coincidence: The timing is dictated by the opening of a one-month window in which Mars and Earth are in ideal alignment on the same side of the sun, which minimizes travel time and fuel use. Such a window opens only once every 26 months.
