Elon Musk’s vision of spaceflight is gorgeous

In the future, Starship will be able to carry out lunar missions as well as long-distance flights to Mars and beyond. The spacecraft was under construction back then at the port of Los Angeles and was reported to cost $5 billion. The Starship test vehicle has surprised people, and they are left wondering that if this test vehicle is such an wonderful piece of art, just how remarkable will the spacecraft be once it is completed.

Over the weekend, Elon Musk tweeted out images of what his completed Spaceship test vehicle will look like, and said it should be ready for first flight within weeks. The real thing will be even better.

Elon Musk took to Twitter yesterday to post concept artwork of SpaceX's Starship test vehicle. Some initially believed that the rocket would feature the company's Raptor engines at its base, which Musk verified by noting that the engines now attached to the ship are "a blend of Raptor development & operational parts". The company intends to use this model as its primary launch vehicle, eventually replacing the current Falcon and Falcon Heavy rockets. As per the tweet by Elon Must, 'Starship test vehicle under assembly will look similar to this illustration when finished.

'I will do a full technical presentation of Starship after the test vehicle we're building in Texas flies, so hopefully March/April, ' he added. However, Musk has confirmed that Starship's final version will have windows. It is also going to be 30 ft wide and much taller than the prototype which will be serving as the test-mule.

This recent development has rendered the fans quite excited in the hopes of what is to come. The Spaceship's job will be to fly suborbital "Grasshopper" flights to prove the design.
