Elon Musk indicated that the injured nose cone would take several weeks to fix, likely pushing the beginning of Starhopper's hop test campaign into late-February or March.
The rocket represents the test iteration of Starship, which the company is building to ferry humans and cargo to the Red Planet.
SpaceX's Starship prototype rocket has been damaged by high winds in Texas, which blew the top half of the hopper off on Wednesday. "Winds of 50 miles per hour "broke the mooring blocks late last night" and blew over the rocket's "fairing", SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted.
James Harden Drops a CAREER-HIGH 61 Points In New York
This is the fifth time Harden has scored at least 35 points in a half. "It was mind-boggling the things we just did". Chamberlain owns the longest streak of 30-plus point outings, a mammoth 65-game run during the 1961-62 season.

Oby Ezekwesili's party levies serious allegations against her
According to the party, Mrs Ezekwesili's announcement was not surprising, as she only pre-empted the party's decision to support another presidential candidate.
SpaceX's new Starship hopper, a prototype of the spacecraft that could one day take people to Mars, will need weeks of repairs after it was toppled by strong winds at the company's private launch site in Boca Chica, Texas, according to a tweet by CEO Elon Musk. Unfortunately for the company, Starhopper didn't make it out unscathed, and Musk estimates that it will take weeks to patch things up.
Shortly after the successful Falcon Heavy Launch, which occurred in early 2018, Musk said he expected a "full-scale test" of the massive rocket within the next few years. An image shared by a member of NASA Spaceflight's online forum, shows the aftermath of the accident including the rocket's nosecone crumpled on the ground.
Musk followed up in a later tweet by saying that the "actual tanks" - the more complex base of the rocket - "are fine". Musk said in an interview with Popular Mechanics published this week that there were two reasons why this material was chosen: low price and high strength. That benefit accelerates SpaceX's development schedule for Starship, he added.
