SpaceX is hoping to re-launch Starship, the most powerful rocket ever built, next week after an attempt in April ended in a spectacular explosion.

SpaceX foresees Starship as a next-generation, fully reusable spaceship that will eventually carry both crew and cargo to Mars.

The project is being followed closely by NASA, which has contracted a version of Starship to function as a lunar lander for its Artemis program to return astronauts to the Moon by the middle of this decade.
