SpaceX Building Two Starship Designs and is Ramping Up Raptor Engine Production

SpaceX is building two competing versions of the new Starship rocket in Texas and Florida. The two SpaceX construction teams will cooperate but also compete on the construction of reusable Starships.

Elon Musk indicated that one focus is ramping the build rate of the new Raptor rocket engines as they build the 6th through the tenth engines.

Elon plans to complete the first 100 Raptor engines early in 2020.

The SpaceX Falcon 9 with 60 Starlink satellites has an 80% chance of launching late today.
