Rocket started to flip before the stage separation.

SpaceX successfully launched the Starship. But it exploded on the first two minutes of flight. By the way, company congratulates all the team behind the launch.

The Starship is a completely reusable spacecraft that can go to Earth orbit, the Moon, Mars, and beyond while also carrying passengers and cargo. Success with a test like this is determined by how much we can learn, which will influence and raise the likelihood of success moving forward as SpaceX quickly develops Starship.

Multiple sub-orbital tests of Starship's upper stage have been successfully accomplished by the SpaceX crew thus far from Starbase, showcasing an unheard-of method of controlled flight. By demonstrating that Starship can fly through the subsonic period of entry before re-igniting its engines and turning itself to a vertical orientation for landing, these flight tests helped confirm the vehicle's design.

The crew has tested the Super Heavy rocket extensively in addition to the upper stage of the Starship, including a full-duration 31 Raptor engine test that had the most simultaneous rocket engine ignitions ever. This test used progressively complicated static burns.

The group also built the largest rocket launch and capture tower in the world. The Super Heavy rocket booster's vehicle integration, launch, and capture are supported by the 146-meter-tall launch and catch tower. The team will not try to capture the Super Heavy rocket or land Starship in a vertical position during the initial flight test.
