SpaceX recently became the world’s first private space organization to land humans in space. In the history of the space race, this is one of the most important events. However, the upcoming tasks are even bigger for Elon Musk. After the success of the historic “Launch America” event, SpaceX is planning for stepping into the unknowns of the Red Planet out there.
Elon Musk is currently focussing on its upcoming Mars mission of 2025. SpaceX is planning to colonize the red planet soon, but before that, they need to set up human landing. Musk is currently working on a new version of the Starship rocket. The new Starship will be the world’s most powerful launch vehicle ever developed, with a capacity of carrying more than 100 metric tonnes to Earth orbit.
