SpaceX asked for data on how Starship SN8 could re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere after returning from an outer mission and move itself to a correct landing point. Katuria described the mission as a success.

“The pressure of the fill header tank was low during the landing burn, which caused the touchdown speed to be high and the RUD, but we got all the data we needed!” He said in a tweet.

RUD stands for “Rapid Undead Dissociable” – a great way to say “crashed.”
