(ORDO NEWS) — Early this morning February 11, 2022 Elon Musk spoke in front of the Starship starship in Boca Chica, Texas (USA) and talked about the future. Below are the main theses of the speech of the CEO and chief engineer of SpaceX.
1. Elon Musk said that SpaceX will launch the Starship mega-rocket into orbit for the first time as early as 2022, perhaps this event will take place over the next six to eight months, from April to December.
2. The Starship-Super Heavy complex is designed to be reusable, and this reuse can reduce the cost of spacewalks by a factor of 100 or more.
3. The focus now is on getting the Starship into orbit and proving that it is possible to safely return the launch vehicle and craft to Earth.
This is logical, because at the moment NASA has chosen Starship to land astronauts on the surface of the moon. The mission is scheduled for 2025. And billionaire Yusaku Maezawa tied his dreams of space travel to Musk’s starship, ordering it to fly around the moon as early as next year.
4. Musk said he plans to build 1000 starships that will deliver people and cargo to Mars in order to create a self-sufficient settlement there.
