Why did the explosion happen?

Indeed, the Starship capsule should have separated from the rocket booster in the first stage three minutes into flight. But the separation did not happen and the rocket exploded. At the time of the explosion, the rocket was at an altitude of 33 km.

Know how big was the rocket?

Starship was the world’s most powerful rocket designed to send humans to the Moon, Mars and beyond. Its height is 394 feet, diameter is 29.5 feet. This rocket is divided into two parts. The upper part is called Starship. Its height is 164 feet. It takes 1200 tonnes of fuel. The second part is super heavy. This is a 226 feet high rocket. This will take the starship to an altitude.

Explain that this was SpaceX’s second attempt to complete the first test flight of Starship. The lift-off of the rocket was canceled less than 10 minutes before the scheduled launch due to pressure in the first stage booster.
