Starship, a 394-foot (120.09 meters) rocket system combined with a super-heavy first-stage booster, is designed to transport people and about 100 tons of cargo to the Moon and Mars.

This is the next-generation reusable launch vehicle being developed by space company Mask, which will make space travel accessible to humans.

SpaceX has recently conducted about 330 ground launches of Raptor engines. The company also performed two low-altitude flight tests of the fifth and sixth Starship prototypes.
