  • Elon Musk has a giant new addition to his plans for colonizing Mars.

  • The Starship Rocket.

  • For years, this rocket was merely a concept on paper, but not anymore.

  • On Saturday, September 28th, Musk stood in front of a fully assembled prototype of the rocket as he unveiled Space IX's Future Plans.

  • Which future do you want, Do you want?

  • The future will become a space faring civilization and are in many worlds and now out there among the stars or one where we are forever confined to earth.

  • And I say it is the first.

  • If all goes according to plan, when Starship is complete, it will tower 387 ft tall, measure 30 ft in diameter and be capable of transporting people to Mars.

  • For comparison, it will be about 5.5 times taller than Space six.

  • His first successful rocket, The Falcon One Starship, is the rocket that Musk has aspired to build ever since he founded Space six in 2000 and two, and after years of modeling, multiple changes to the rockets design and a substantial investment from Japanese billionaire Yusaku Miyazawa, it has come out looking unlike anything space six has ever built before.

  • For example, Space X's Falcon nine rockets are covered by an aluminum lithium alloy.

  • But as you can see, Starship is covered with something different, which must call the best design decision of the entire project.

  • Steel is the best design decision on this whole thing is a three on one stainless steel because at cryogenic temperatures, a 31 stainless actually has about the same effective strength as an advanced composite or aluminum lithium.

  • Unlike most steals, which get brittle at low temperature 31 stainless gets much stronger.

  • And unlike the nine engines on Space X's Falcon nine Rockets Starship will fly on six more powerful wrapped ER engines.

  • The ship will have a total of six engines.

  • Three of the sea level variety of of rapture on those were actually on the rocket right now.

  • In fact, that's a picture of just inside.

  • That's good.

  • That's what it looks like.

  • And they gimbal, which, which means that the whole engine moves so the way to rocket steers is by moving the entire engine.

  • So whereas an aircraft engine is static and you you move by moving like the control surfaces like the, uh, ailerons and rudder and elevator flaps with rocket.

  • When the when the engines of power you moved the entire engine to steer it, the starship will have three, uh, sea level uh, engines that move up to about 15 degrees angle and three vacuum engines that have optimized for efficiency that will not move.

  • They will be just fixed in place.

  • Musk said that within the next 1 to 2 months, basics will launch the Starship prototype, called Mach 1 to 12.5 miles in the air and then landed back home in Boca Chica, Texas.

  • After that, are next flight after that might actually just be all the way to orbit with a booster.

  • And the ship, the prototype shown here will probably never reach orbit.

  • That mission will go to an upgraded version of the rocket called Mach three, which Space six could start constructing as soon as next month.

  • And by next year, Musk says, Space six could be launching people to space on this thing.

  • Whether that's actually the case, we'll just have to wait and see.
