Why Starship is the holy grail for SpaceX
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has said that the “holy grail” to making human life multiplanetary lies in our ability to make a completely reusable rocket system that can carry a massive amount of equipment, supplies — and people — deep into space.
This is why SpaceX invented Starship.
It Two stainless-steel components make up the vehicle, including the Super Heavy booster and Starship spacecraft. This vehicle can carry cargo of more than 100 tonnes and crew members per launch.
These two pieces, collectively known as Starship, loom almost 400 feet in the air and are nearly 100 feet taller that the Statue of Liberty.
It is not easy to lift all this weight from the ground. SpaceX has 33 Raptor engines that are used for boosters. SpaceX also includes seven more engines to the craft.
Investors could find the project attractive. According to McKinsey & Co., private funding in space-related companies topped $10 billion in 2021 — a tenfold increase over the past decade. There is some evidence to suggest that this trend may be changing.
Brooke Stokes (associate partner at McKinsey), stated in an interview that there has been a greater focus on the lunar recently. So the moon, Mars and all that is beyond. Imagine Mars, the moon [and]A deeper exploration of planets. In 2021, Lunar and beyond investments were approximately $1 billion. It was our highest total to-date.
Experts have estimatedIf SpaceX is able to succeed with Starship and its global satellite internet venture Starlink then the company’s value could soar into the billions.
