Above: How SpaceX’s Starship Will Become The Most Powerful Rocket In The World | Countdown To Launch.
“When SpaceX was founded, its goal was to establish a human colony on Mars, and Starship might be the way to get there…”
In September 2019, Elon Musk unveiled the first iteration of his next-generation vehicle, Starship.
While SpaceX continues to push the limits, this next endeavor might be its most ambitious yet. SpaceX was founded with the intention of one day creating a human colony on Mars, and Elon Musk hopes that Starship and the Super Heavy rocket will be the way to get there.
Starship was built to carry 100 passengers and will serve as the spacecraft to shuttle both people and cargo to Earth’s orbit and beyond.
Starship has its six Raptors, but the real power behind this transportation system comes from the Super Heavy rocket, which has thirty-seven Raptor engines.
In its final form, the Starship and Super Heavy combination will result in the world’s most powerful launch vehicle ever developed, and SpaceX is working fast to bring this super project to life.
