A prototype of SpaceX’s Starship partially exploded during a test on Wednesday. Video from the test site in Boca Chica, Texas,  shows the top blowing off the top of the Mk 1 prototype during the pressure test. “You can see the top shot up almost 500 feet! Cryo fluid engulfed the complex,” said streaming site LabPadre, which covered the test, in a YouTube post.

LabPadre noted that the anomaly occurred at 3:27:22 p.m. local time.
