Musk's stated launch cost of only around $2 million per Starship flight is essentially required, should the final goal be to set up a "self-sustaining city on Mars"
But what is the "Mars Direct" plan
This is a big step for SpaceX's plan to launch NASA astronauts aboard Crew Dragon
"We definitely want to land it on the Moon before 2022"
We're still not sure when that launch will occur, however...
But Starhopper apparently emerged relatively unscathed
The two side boosters came down safely but the center core narrowly missed the landing on SpaceX's drone ship & exploded on impact with the water
SpaceX and NASA need to know what went wrong
The sky is the limit
When it’s completed, it will be one of the largest rockets ever built and could be the first spacecraft to bring humans to another planet
