SpaceX popularizes space exploration, and it is amazing how. Aside from the fantastic work they do in delivering cargo and humans to space, which you can see in the efforts made by them to transport astronauts and supplies to the International Space Station, the interest of people worldwide also being captured by their retro exhibitions. Recently, the CEO of SpaceX, Elon Musk, released information and images on a test rocket that he calls the SpaceX Starship Hopper.
Mars will hopefully be colonized with the help of a project in which the prototype Hopper was recently constructed. If you are following Musk, you will see that he is keen on reaching Mars and the exploration mission has drawn the attention of many engineers and scientists as it can take us to a whole new frontier.
A journey to Mars is closer than before as the plans are going well.
SpaceX Starship Hopper revealed by Elon Musk
The huge first-stage booster, Super Heavy along with SpaceX Starship Hopper which has been known together as the Big Falcon Rocket (BFR), could become the vehicles that will bring the achievement of this task.
Many things need to be taken into account for Starship and Super Heavy to be successful, and the exertion of a lot of power is also required.
That can’t be compared with any other mission to the moon that is 384,400 kilometers (238,855 miles) away. However, this journey will take 140 times more. With that being said, enough supplies, food, and protection from the harmful cosmic radiations would be needed for the astronauts to survive. Apart from that, the amount of fuel it would take to break free of the gravity of Earth and make it to Mars is still under discussion. These are the reasons why people dealing with a voyage to Mars are struggling so much, as Elon Musk explained.
