Watch: Elon Musk Posts Slow Motion Video Of Exploding SpaceX Starship, Tweets In Valhalla Now
After a seemingly successful flight and landing, SpaceX's unmanned rocket exploded on the ground on Wednesday.
SpaceX founder and billionaire Elon Musk reacted today with his signature wit and humour.
"SN10 is in Valhalla now," Mr Musk tweeted. Valhalla is an enormous hall in Norse mythology where Odin, the ruler God of Asgard, sends those who die in combat. Recently, Asgard and Valhalla have been made popular by Marvel's Thor movies.
Mr Musk's tweet seemingly refers to the fight the rocket put up before blowing up into flames - hence SN10 has now been sent to Valhalla.
He also shared a YouTube video of the landing and subsequent crash with the tweet.

The Starship SN10 prototype had lifted off from SpaceX's Texas launch pad in Boca Chica. It was the third straight blunder involving the prototype of the Starship rocket, which SpaceX hopes one day to send to Mars. The last two test flights ended in spectacular crashes.
