As much as we post on this spoiled brat,  RE ! Give this GUY a thread  :icon_sunny:

The Starship, SpaceX’s Mars-bound rocket, is about to take a step closer to lift-off.

On Friday, CEO Elon Musk revealed the company will soon provide an update on the stainless steel rocket, “probably” on June 20. Evidence suggests that the firm is getting ready to a reveal a new “orbital” prototype, and it could offer a more in-depth look at the vehicle following its reported Tintin-inspired redesign in September 2018.

The rocket, currently being tested at the firm’s Boca Chica facility in Texas, is expected to play a pivotal role in SpaceX’s most ambitious missions. These include the plan to send Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa around the moon in 2023, SpaceX’s plan to send the first humans to the surface of Mars, and its long term goal of establishing a city on the planet by 2050.
