Elon Musk shows off SpaceXs massive Starship test rocket
Musk on Thursday night tweeted an image of the completed Starship test-flight rocket from a SpaceX facility in south Texas. A video of the reusable rocket standing against a cloudy sky was tweeted by a rocket enthusiast, and retweeted by Musk:. The Starship rocket is intended to be a key component of Musk’s plan to land on — and one day colonize — Mars. The plan is for the 100-passenger Starship to be blasted into space by SpaceX’s upcoming “Super Heavy” rocket, which itself may take its first test flight later this year.
