Elon Musk unveils new Mars rocket is a prototype, expected to be well in the months to

(Reuters) – Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk has unveiled the newest iteration of his space company, which is a new compound which Combines, in which a quick development timeline to the center of the vehicle from SpaceX’s quest to launch humans to the moon and Mars.

Musk had a bunch of space enthusiasts and reporters SpaceX’s rocket-development of the site on the Saturday in the remote village of Boca Chica, Texas, and an animation of the ship landing on the moon and on to Mars and predicted that the rocket was the first orbital flight, it would be able to come out within the next six months, to be followed by a trip to outer space with people on board in the coming year.

“This is the holy grail of the space,” Musk said, standing out among a huge, new, assembled Spaceship and rocket, the Falcon 1’s first vehicle, the first orbital mission, launched by a SpaceX 11 months ago.

“The key breakthrough needed is for us to have a space-faring civilization that has been space travel, like air travel,” said Musk, who is also the chief executive of electric car maker Tesla Inc. (TSLA.D).

The Starship, a sleek, steel rocketship is designed to take the ferry, dozens of people have been to the moon and Mars, it is the upper part of the Musk is a massive interplanetary missile system, which is 387 metres high (118 feet) and the latest addition to SpaceX’s line-up of re-usable launch vehicles.

Boca Chica village, a few miles north of the Mexican border, is ground zero for the SpaceX’s of the three-year experimental program for the Future, in which the rocket motor is tested for no and the nerves of residents living in a remote hamlet of about two dozen houses a mile away.

“I think that’s the real danger of the caribbean Sea, the village is very little, but it’s not small,” Musk said during a question-and-answer session. “So, most likely, in the course of time, it would be better to buy it from one of the villages, and we have made an offer to that effect.”

Some people have dismissed SpaceX’s non-negotiable offer to purchase their property for three times its market value.

A three-legged prototype of the missile, with the name Starhopper has test-launched in the town two times, in July, the most recent of which is the fly to be as high as 500 feet (152 meters) and landing on the adjacent concrete to the test of Musk’s next-generation rocket engine called Raptor.

Musk’s mission to the moon in conjunction with NASA’s goal of sending humans there, by 2024, under the Artemis programme, accelerating to deep-space initiative that will be driven by the Trumpet’s administration, in March, who would like to work with a handful of U.S. space companies to build a long-term presence on the moon’s surface, before it is ultimately the colonization of Mars.

The space agency has tapped SpaceX to figure out how to get the vehicles to the surface of the moon, and to assist in the development of a system for the fueling of missiles, such as the Starship, in space, is a “key technology for the ongoing support of the exploration efforts on the Moon and on to Mars,” NASA said in a release on Friday.

NASA has awarded SpaceX, Boeing Co. (BA.N), for a total of $6.8 billion, in order to build a competitive rocket and capsule systems for launching astronauts into orbit from U.s. soil for the first time since 2011. The development of the astronaut’s capsules have been plagued by delays, and the test of the likelihood of an accident.

“I’m looking forward to the SpaceX announcement, of the future. In the meantime, the Commercial Crew and years behind schedule,” NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine said in a Friday evening statement. “NASA is expected to have the same level of excitement and enthusiasm, focused on the investment of the American taxpayer. It is time for you to make.”
