Elon Musk posts first glimpse of SpaceX's finished Starship test vehicle

Starship prototype

"To continue delivering for our customers and to succeed in developing interplanetary spacecraft and a global space-based Internet, SpaceX must become a leaner company", the company stated, referring to its ongoing work on its Starship and Super Heavy launch vehicles and Starlink constellation.

"Usable strength/weight of full hard stainless at cryo is slightly better than carbon fiber, room temp is worse, high temp is vastly better", Musk wrote on Twitter.

This is a prototype version, nicknamed the "Hopper", that has been assembled at the SpaceX launch site in Texas.

My last conversation with him is very important", Emery said. "I want his behaviour and his focus to be on West Ham on Saturday". Shkodran Mustafi and Konstantinos Mavropanos are all back in full training and under consideration for the weekend.

Later versions of the rocket will be taller and thicker with a smaller nose cone. Musk said the company should have its first orbital prototype by June. This is an early peek at the rocket that SpaceX hopes will take people to Mars, ferry people across the world at high speed, and carry high-paying tourists around the moon.

Last week, Musk hinted that the suborbital Starship test could happen as soon as February, but some "unforeseen issues" could push it back a month. In November 2018, Musk announced that from now BFR will be called Starship.

This week marks a busy period for SpaceX, with the company due to launch another batch of satellites into space on its Falcon 9 rocket later on Friday.
