Elon Musk said he hopes to build 1,000 reusable spacecraft Starship that SpaceX is developing in South Texas within the next 10 years. That means it will produce an average of 100 Starship ships per year.
Musk added that his ultimate goal is to launch an average of three Starship ships per day and to make flights to Mars available to everyone.
“It is necessary to create such opportunities so that anyone can go if they want, we are willing to lend them if the customer does not have enough money,” Musk wrote. “There will be a lot more work on Mars,” added the SpaceX founder.
Startship, if realized as designed, will be one of the most powerful rocket launch systems in the world ever created. Each Starship spacecraft has a capacity of 100 tons and can put 100 people in orbit.
If Starship can be realized like it was designed before, this ship will be one of the most powerful rocket launch systems ever created by man.
Each launch of the Starship spacecraft can transport 100 tons of payload and simultaneously carry 100 people into orbit at the same time.
At the moment, Musk has not said exactly what the spacecraft will need to bring to Mars, but it is certain that there will be a lot of food, water, construction materials, tools and systems. Advanced life support is brought along.
Therefore, he estimated that it would take a whole fleet of warships to build a permanent settlement. “In order for humans to live on extraterrestrial missions, millions of tons of objects need to be put into space,” he tweeted on Thursday.
On his personal Twitter recently, Elon Musk revealed many new details about his plan to build a 1 million-city city on Mars by 2050. Musk said he expected to be able to develop 1,000 spacecraft. Starship reusable tower in the next 10 years. This means 100 starship per year.
According to the vision that Elon Musk is posing, there will be a total of 1,000 spacecraft, the total volume will be about 100 megatons of material will be transported to Mars and that’s just what Musk hopes to. Sent to the red planet every year. With each ship carrying about 100 passengers, that would create a total of about 100,000 migrants to Mars each year.
Musk also said that he will take advantage of the time that Mars will move towards the sun, creating a line between Mars, the Sun, and the Earth – This phenomenon occurs every 778 days / times, or 2 years 1 month and 18 days. That allows the spacecraft to escape Earth’s rotation and travel to Mars will take less time and fuel.
Musk added that he would take advantage of that opportunity by “putting Mars’ fleet in orbit,” then sending all 1,000 ships into orbit during that time.
And that seems to contradict an earlier tweet, in which Musk said 1,000 spacecraft will fly to Mars every year, instead of every 26 months. Either way, SpaceX still has a long way to go before reaching those goals. And Musk said a new Starship prototype could be launched before the end of March.
“The first flight is expected to be delivered within the next two to three months,” Elon Musk suddenly announced in a tweet on December 27 last year.
Development of the Starship prototype was delayed after an accidental explosion during a fuel tank pressure test on November 20, 2019, which blew away the first prototype of the 16-storey Starship. .
In fact, SpaceX is building up to 20 different spacecraft models before finalizing the “1.0” design scheme to be able to transport goods and people.
Starship’s launch system will include a 22-stage rocket called Super Heavy, which gives the total height up to about 387 feet (118 meters). During the launch, the Starship spacecraft will disconnect after the booster runs out of fuel and launches the rocket into orbit.
Both parts are being redesigned to be reusable. If everything went smoothly, Musk estimated that the cost of a launch would be just $ 2 million – hundreds of times cheaper than the current cost of transporting people and people. goods and equivalent space.
Musk shared in September that he hoped to launch a Starship spacecraft into space in mid-2020 and even send humans into space before the end of 2020.
Gwynne Shotwell, SpaceX chairman and chief operating officer, said during a NASA remote conference that SpaceX “determined the target would land on the Moon by 2022” and bring business guests, but businessmen. Japanese technology and billionaire Yusaku Maezawa travel around the moon in 2023.
