This is not the complete rocket, it is only the landing vehicle. It is a simple and effective design. The image on the left in the OP is kinda a prop. It will be used for testing not to go into space.

Looks like the science fiction writers from the past nailed it again.

Go to the link and the thing looks like a mock-up made in North Korea. Actually looks like a wooden frame wrapped in tin foil. WTF?

Ummm...way to go...let’s slam the guy because his VTOL spacecraft doesn’t look like a Tesla roadster...

At least he’s paving the way on the space flight front...if you want to see ridiculous...just look at Scaled Composits ginormous launch platform...now that’s a thorough waste of money and time...the plan is laughable...


I think Elon’s design looks awesome...and is a perfect salute to those visionaries from Sci-Fi that planted the seeds of adventure in so many minds...including my own...

I’m going to screenshot your post dude.
You nailed it with that and not a single person can refute your response.
Beautiful.

Since its 2019 i was hoping to see the designs a bit better.
The design looks like as if its from the 60s.


Yes! but Adolf Hitler built it First.
its the V2 rocket.
is this how far we have come?
they use't to thing we would be on the moon by 1960!
and soon after mars.

the saturn v (see the V again)
put a ship on the moon.
Why did they never use it again?
it did not blow up like the space shuttle?

Uh...........it doesnt look multi-stage to me!

How they going to get that into orbit without multi-stage? The dead weight would kill the whole effort!

Unfortunately, Musk doesn't seem to understand what being a responsible C-level executive for a publicly-traded company means. I know SpaceX is not the same thing as Tesla, but because Elon Musk is being praised for "his" rocket, it is totally fair to call him out here.

Elon Musk seems to be given special treatment by the authorities, seeing as how he skated by with a settlement from the SEC's lawsuit against him for securities fraud. It's funny that someone like Martha Stewart gets prison time for doing less than Elon did. He has a lot of lawsuits headed his way. I'm not sure about SpaceX but Tesla and Elon himself have some difficult times ahead, and rightfully so.


BFD. Really. There's always someone to criticize. "C" level executive? Are YOU one? I thought not. Securities fraud? REALLY? He tweets a single message and suddenly it's "securities fraud." How absolutely asinine. The SEC is full of it. A $20 million fine and getting fired is now "special treatment"? I think so, too, but rather the special treatment was an unreasonable fine by an agency that has run amok with its "authority" completely independent of the courts.

The fact is Elon Musk has already done more for humanity than any of us here have combined. I suppose it is natural to see this unfettered jealousy stirred up by people who feel it is within their remit to judge his every twitch and utterance against what they think he SHOULD say. To hell with these people who have not done squat. It's embarrassing to watch.

Looks just like the early spacecraft in scifi movies from the fifties and sixties. I like it.

These pics should help some grasp the fact that the pic in the OP is just the upper stage

Even though its pretty cool, does this look way too small to be a 100 crew spacecraft to anyone else?


No problem! Here's a cross-section of the seating plan (space suits not shown):

So 21st century. Isn't this what scifi predicted.
I bet the 22nd century will be exciting.

Because it's an atomic wasteland filled with cannibal mutants?

Saturn V rotted away. Besides, do you want to go into space with technology from the disco era?

"Starship"? He's got to be kidding...


Come on now. This is the first real starship, all the others have been scifi.

Not sure what they will eat but I doubt it will be tofu. Doubt they will be vegans.

My plan is to join the cannibals. There always seem to be way more of them around than the "heroes" in those stories.

It'll all be high-definition VR video. That way you don't even have to go anywhere, just like the old "Mission to the Moon" ride at Disneyland.

That's good because you will probably join them one way or another.

I am not sure what to think about this ship.

Haha... at Marine OCS when I was there they called getting your core temp checked if you fell out with heat exhaustion a 'silver bullet'... I'll let you figure that one out

This rocket is really intriguing... 100 man crew in there?
