SpaceX Renders Metal Starship on Moon and Mars

Elon Musk has tweeted out new SpaceX computer-generated pictures of the metallic Starship on the Moon and Mars.

The SpaceX Spaceship is the upper stage of what was called the BFR. It is being made with a steel alloy that is easier and cheaper to work than carbon composites.

The SpaceX Starhopper is already testing the new Raptor engine which has about double the thrust of the current SpaceX Merlin engines.

The rapid pace of SpaceX construction and testing could see a launch to orbit of a Starship by the end of this year or early next year.

The combined SpaceX Super Heavy Starship (what was called the BFR) will be 100% reusable and will drastically lower SpaceX cost to space. It will be able to launch 100 tons into low earth orbit.
