At any rate, the next five years should be amazing. There could very possibly be manned landings on the moon and a lunar space station. I would love
to see a deep space mission to a NEO, which is within the capabilities of an Orion spacecraft ( up to 60-day missions).
Musk says a Starship prototype could reach orbit as early as this year. If Starship Super Heavy performs as Musk expects, the cost to place a pound of
payload in LEO could drop to $10. Interestingly, a favorable launch window will be available in 2025 for a Hohmann transfer orbit to Mars.
