Starship’s First Flight Tests Ends in Explosion
NSR Principal Analyst Dallas Kasaboski quoted in the latest ViaSatellite Article Starship’s First Flight Tests Ends in Explosion
The first Starship launch is part of a trend of launch providers calling failures successes amid a lack of launch supply, commented Dallas Kasaboski, an analyst for NSR, an Analysys Mason company.
“A rocket exploded, everyone cheered, and the industry fails forward. As exciting as it was, there is a clear trend of launch providers calling failures successes,” Kasaboski tweeted, citing launches from Firefly, Relativity Space, and Astra that failed to achieve their full objectives but were still characterized as successes.
