Once complete, Starship will serve SpaceX and other contractors on missions to the Moon, Mars and possibly beyond.
Starship will launch atop of the Super Heavy booster, a powerful first stage rocket measuring 230ft in height.
Super Heavy will provide the first kick that will propel Starship into orbit, before turning around and returning to land, much like the Falcon 9.
According to SpaceX’s original plans, the booster rocket would return to the launch site and land on its six legs.
