missile Starship It is the launch vehicle that lies at the heart of a billionaire’s ambitions Elon Musk To make human space travel easier and more routine.
Even Elon Musk commented on the incident on Twitter. “Yeah, not really good. The team is assessing the damage.”
The goal of the Starship project is to carry out missions in orbit around the Earth and the Moon. But Musk plans to go to Mars and even offer space tourism offerings, which are expected to cost anywhere from $10 million to $60 million.
The vehicle is fully reusable and designed to be launched atop a giant rocket called the Super Heavy, to carry people and cargo to destinations as far away as the Moon and eventually Mars. So far, there have been a few high-altitude test flights with the spacecraft, but the spacecraft has yet to begin orbiting.
In addition to the final flights to Mars, NASA will use the spacecraft to transport astronauts from orbit around the Moon to the surface of the satellite.
