After months of pressure tests and development efforts, the prototype of SpaceX's Starship deep-space rocket has gotten off the ground. The vehicle, called Starship SN5, flew for the first time, went up to an altitude of 500 feet, and then landed back vertically on the ground - all without a hitch. Following the success of the flight, Musk tweeted out that they will conduct more such short hops with Starship prototypes.
