SpaceX launch: Elon Musk says first 9 mile Starship flight this week


However, he also voiced his fears Starship development was proceeding too slowly.

Mr Musk told the Satelite2020 conference in March: “The thing that concerns me most right now is that unless we improve our rate of innovation dramatically, there is no chance of a base on the moon or a city on Mars.

“We’ve got to improve our rate of innovation or, based on past trends, I am definitely going to be dead before Mars.”

SpaceX plans to mass-produce Starship spacecraft, with each one hoped to eventually be capable of ferrying 100 passengers to the Moon, Mars and beyond.
