CEO and the founder of SpaceX Elon Musk will give an important update about Space X starship rocket on Saturday evening.
The founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Space X Elon Musk is to give a very crucial update tonight. It is regarding the Space X starship, the company’s next generation rocket. It is called the Starship because it represents the vision of Space X which is to make humanity a species that lives on many planets and not just one. The Starship rocket has been assembled in the state of Texas and is the first version of the rocket and it has just three engines installed.
There have many name and design changes when Elon Musk came up with the idea of the one of a kind rocket a few years ago. Prior to the Starship, it was referred to as the Big Falcon Rocket (BFR) and Interplanetary Transport System (ITS) as well as many other name changes.
Starship will be quite a big rocket from what is believed. It has been in a similar pattern to SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rockets but will come with a super heavy booster, another new hardware design from SpaceX which the company is planning to build.
Despite several design and name changes, there has been only one goal of Starship ever since its inception. The goal is to launch as many as 100 people into space with a rocket that has the ability to launch and land multiple times. It seems as achieving the goal is quite close than one can imagine.
