Elon Musk unveils new Mars rocket prototype, expects missions in months | Reuters

SpaceX is planning a mission to launch humans to both the Moon and Mars, and Elon Musk just announced a newly assembled Starship to lead to mission. The rocket’s development site lies in a remote village called Boca Chica in Texas, and Musk’s timeline could result in orbital flight within just six months. Musk has acknowledged that there are risks with developing in the village, and has offered to buy them out for three times their market value. SpaceX’s mission aligns with NASA’s goal to send humans to the moon by 2024 and eventually colonize Mars. NASA has recruited SpaceX to help with these goals and has awarded them $6.8B to build rocket and capsule systems.
