SpaceX Starship Will Be Modified for Human Landings on the Moon

The SpaceX human lander design is a single-stage solution with Starship, their fully reusable launch and landing system designed for travel to the Moon, Mars and beyond. The proposal included an in-space propellent transfer demonstration and uncrewed test landing.

The Starship will have an elevator pulley system to take the astronaut to the surface.

The SN4 Starship prototype should fly in May to 150 meters.

The SN5 Starship prototype should fly late in May or in June to 12-mile-high (20 kilometers).
