In Case You Missed It…

This is the video of Elon Musk’s Starship Presentation on Saturday.

Highlights from the Starship Presentation:

  • Starship Production is Speeding Along:

    • It only took SpaceX’s Boca Chica team four or five months to build the Starship Mk1 prototype— even after Musk changed the plans to a less expensive and more heat resistant stainless steel body instead of the previous carbon-fiber design.
  • It’s Really Powerful

    • Starship itself will have six Raptor engines, the most powerful SpaceX has made to date. The Super Heavy rocket that will lift it off of the planet could have up to 37 of them.
    • It’s also about twice as tall as NASA’s Delta IV rocket.
  • Though It’s Probably the Most Exciting SpaceX Project, It Isn’t the Only One

    • SpaceX is working on tons of other projects with the goal of furthering humanity’s presence in space.
    • Other projects of note include the Crew Dragon capsule Musk’s vision for a gigantic satellite constellation.
  • Musk Wants a Base on the Moon

    • Musk said the prospect of building a lunar base is “very exciting.” He also affirmed his commitment to help NASA get back to the Moon by 2024.
  • Starship May Launch Very Soon

    • While Musk has been known to play fast and loose with timetables before, he claims that we could see a Mk1 fly up to 60,000 feet in a month or two.
