    US entrepreneur Elon Musk has launched the latest prototype of his Starship vehicle from Texas.

    Codenamed SN8, the uncrewed rocket lifted away from the Boca Chica R&D facility on what had been billed as a brief flight to 12.5km (41,000ft).

    The 50m-tall vehicle crashed on touchdown but Mr Musk was delighted with how much the test outing achieved.

    Before the flight, the tech billionaire had dampened expectations, warning his fans that some mishap was likely.
