Starship Prototype
Mk1


✕ Flight Proven Destroyed
Destroyed

Starship Mk1 was partially destroyed during max pressure tank testing, when the forward LOX tank ruptured along a weld line of the craft's steel structure, propelling the bulkhead several meters upwards.

Starship Prototype
SN1


✕ Flight Proven Destroyed
Destroyed

SN1 was destroyed when undergoing pressurization.

Starship Prototype
SN10


✓ Flight Proven Destroyed
Destroyed

SN10 is a Starship Prototype similar in design to SN9. SN10 was destroyed during an explosion on the pad after landing.

Starship Prototype
SN11
