Failing upwards can get you to orbit: SpaceX Gets List of Starship Upgrades Needed Before Launch. Best quote:

SpaceX launches new test rockets accepting they might explode or fail midflight, so engineers get flight experience quickly. It’s one reason why SpaceX can move through development more rapidly than NASA and other companies that are more reluctant to fail in public.

“More reluctant to fail” is better described, at least when referring to NASA, as “anaphylacticly allergic to failure”. Unfortunately that allergy leads to spending a billion dollars per launch, which is why SpaceX is the leading launch provider, worldwide.
