On February 2, 2021, at 20:25 UTC, Starship SN9 was the second fully assembled Starship to be launched.

Powered by three (3) Raptor engines, RSN 45, 48 and 49, SN9 successfully launched all the way up to 10km (33,000 ft) and then performed the skydive/belly flop descent maneuver.

Unfortunately, one of the two (2) Raptor engines failed to relight for the flip maneuver, which caused SN9 to land at high speed and experience a RUD (Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly).
