Elon Musk wants to quickly relaunch the unmanned prototype of the Mars rocket from the US space company SpaceX, he reports on Twitter on Friday.

The missile landed safely on Thursday after a test flight and did not explode afterwards.

Starship SN15 was launched from SpaceX's space base in Boca Chica, Texas.

The rocket rose to an altitude of about 10 kilometers, then turned horizontally and went into free fall.

After that fall, the engines ignited, the spacecraft reverted to a Vertical Position, and the rocket landed safely on the ground.

Musk writes that he wants to make another test flight "soon".

It is as yet unclear when exactly that will happen.

SpaceX is the company of Musk, who is also the CEO of car manufacturer Tesla.

SpaceX is currently bringing cargo and astronauts to the International Space Station, but the company's goal is to enable the colonization of the planet Mars.

Starship must become the spacecraft that 'sets foot' on the red planet. The rocket should also make commercial flights to the moon possible.
