Elon Musk envisioned that SpaceX's Starlink satellite constellation would be able to deliver Internet to areas underserved by most carriers.

In others, it actually did worse than what consumers already had.

SpaceX successfully launched its latest Starship prototype, but SN11 didn't have the safe - or at least single-piece - landing that the company was hoping for.
