Elon Musk’s spacecraft manufacturer company SpaceX wants to take people to the moon by 2023 and to Mars by 2027. So their spacecraft ‘Starship’ is being tested regularly. However, the test was not successful. Even the ‘Starship’ exploded during landing after flying.
The type of rocket that SpaceX will send to Mars is exactly like ‘Starship SN10’. It successfully completed the flight. But the disaster occurred during the landing. At that moment, the rocket caught fire and explode.
Initially, it is thought that the fire was caused by “leaking methane”. With this, the rocket of SpaceX “crashed for the third time”. Earlier, it collapsed in December and February.
Meanwhile, Japanese millionaire Yusaku Maezawa wants to travel around the moon by Starship. The mission called ‘Dear Moon’, the SpaceX rocket is scheduled to leave the earth for the moon in 2023. Eight ordinary people will go with him free of cost.
When asked Yusaku Maezawa that there was a huge risk involved, he replied, “Musk says there will be no problem. I trust him.”
The Starship rocket was formerly known as the ‘Big Falcon Rocket’ (BFR). SpaceX aims to take people around the moon with the rocket. The company also aims to operate high-speed international flights through space.
