SpaceX is actively working on launching the world's most powerful rocket, the Starship-Super Heavy, into space 

The rocket's inaugural launch in April generated heat and pressure comparable to a volcanic explosion, causing damage to the launchpad 

During liftoff, the rocket created a massive hole in the launchpad, ejecting rocks and debris that reached up to five miles away 

Researchers, led by Philip Metzger from the University of Central Florida, collected samples of debris and sand from the launch site for analysis 

Metzger reported that the rocket's heat and pressure caused the concrete pad to crack, releasing gas and material akin to a volcanic eruption 

SpaceX has made thousands of adjustments to the rocket, including upgrades to the launchpad's resilience, featuring a "water-cooled steel sandwich" and a water deluge system 

The new launchpad is reinforced with two thick steel plates, a water deluge system, and 35,300 cubic feet of high-strength concrete to withstand the Raptor engines' intense heat 

SpaceX is set for a second launch attempt, addressing the issues encountered in the explosive first attempt and aiming for a successful mission 

Elon Musk, SpaceX's CEO, expressed confidence in the upgrades, estimating a 60% chance of success for the upcoming launch 

Regardless of the outcome, Musk assured online followers that "Excitement guaranteed" during the upcoming Starship launch
