Elon Musk Wants to Build The Largest Rocket of World

Elon Musk, Chief Executive Officer of Space Exploration Technologies Corp. (SpaceX), has worked for many years on several space projects. One of the latest developments of SpaceX's facility in Boca Chica, Texas, is the Starship launch vehicle platform.

The rocket will replace the Falcon 9 rocket for interplanetary and lunar missions. In addition, the new rocket will help extend the Starlink satellite network of the corporation quickly. It is the biggest operating rocket in the world, according to Musk.

Musk recently released a stream of tweets that shows that SpaceX is now working on constructing Starship's First Stage Booster, which is now nicknamed "Super Heavy", following its safe landing in a prototype of the top stage. This rocket will launch the payloads of the vehicle beyond Earth. As many as 29 fully flow-stage Raptor methane-fuelled rocket engines will be included in the final design. By the end of this year, these will be reduced to 32 engines.

He also showed that the raptor produced a maximum thrust of 225 tonnes during testing. The raptor's end objective is to attain a total of 7,500 tonnes or 16,6 million pounds. It will become the world's biggest rocket. It will exceed the renowned Saturn V rocket that let men arrive on the moon in 1969 from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Musk intends to land Starship next year in March and reach orbit this year on the platform.
