As seen on SpaceX video, the rocket was thrown into the air and crashed back to the ground with a huge force sending debris far and wide. Earlier two prototypes SN8 and SN9 had crash-landed in fireballs. The incidents had taken place in December and early February.
Elon Musk is building these next-generation starship rockets for his Mars Mission. The test is taking place in a nearly deserted area in South Texas. It is close to the Mexico border and as it is vast and empty the blasts do not cause damage.

If the tests are successful then the rockets can also be used for Moon missions.
