For all the success of the first Starship launch, the launch pad left a great deal to be desired and could have been the reason why the biggest rocket in history’s initial test flight ended in a termination just minutes into the flight. Elon Musk must bear some of the responsibility and he predicted back int 2020 that having no flame trench might not be a good idea. So in this video, we look at the issues the launch caused and how NASA has been doing this for over 56 years without any major problems.
