On Twitter, Elon Musk posted an image of a spacecraft that his Starship would look like. It resembles the starships of the fiction of the fifties: the glittering metal elegant design. Now SpaceX is building a Starship test prototype.
The test ship will be a little more than 9 meters across, but it will be shorter than the future of this starship and will not be equipped with portholes. The possibility of flying in front of the main mission in 2020 will be tested on it. Test flight can be carried out this spring.
Starship is the renamed Big Falcon Rocket (more precisely, the upper rocket stage), while the rocket booster is called Super Heavy.
In addition, Musk said that the first test flight Crew Dragon will be organized in February. It was originally scheduled for December 2018.
