The huge rocket consists of two parts: the Super Heavy Boosterwhich is the thruster, and the spaceship star shipwhich is about 50 meters high.

The objects that make up the mission will be reusable, so they will be able to be in orbit more than once.

The launch of Starship has been announced on several occasions, but only to be suspended, the first due to problems in the development of the artifact and the following due to an investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) which at the time was considered to have a negative effect on the environment.
