SpaceX CEO Elon Musk announced an upcoming update on the next-generation Starship rocket on Thursday, February 10. This presentation comes after more than two years since the last novelty of the spaceship .

Starship is the ship tasked with taking man into deep space and is being developed at the company’s test facility in Boca Chica, Texas.

The flight system comprises the first stage called Super Heavy and the upper stage Starship. The spacecraft is being lined up for manned lunar missions, and with a chance of putting man on Mars .

Reuse is the key

Musk wrote on his Twitter account that Starship  “aspires to be the first fully reusable orbital launch vehicle, the holy grail of rocketry. This is the critical breakthrough needed to make life multiplanetary.”

Reusability has been key to SpaceX ‘s success , just as it does today with its mighty Falcon 9 rocket . 

While Starship is Elon Musk’s bid to conquer space, NASA also has an interest in the space vehicle. In 2021, the US space agency awarded SpaceX a $2.9 billion contract  to develop Starship as a lander to bring astronauts to the Moon .
