The Spacex SN8 Starship flew to high altitude but explodes when it came in too fast for landing.

Elon says fuel header tank pressure was low during landing burn.

Successful ascent, switchover to header tanks & precise flap control to landing point! https://t.co/IIraiESg5M

Fuel header tank pressure was low during landing burn, causing touchdown velocity to be high & RUD, but we got all the data we needed! Congrats SpaceX team hell yeah!!
