Starship, as Live Science reported, is SpaceX’s long-term project to build a vehicle capable of transporting heavy cargo, possibly including multiple people and life support systems, into space The 49-meter high machine with a height 9 meters is at the core of the company’s strategy to get people to Mars For the short term, however, Starship is only intended for use on a jaunt around the moon

So far, the company has not announced any functioning systems to purify the air, supply water or otherwise support life aboard Starship, nor has it announced the construction of the Falcon Super Heavy rocket to launch Starship into space completed and did not land spaceship without incident, however, the company appears committed to the project and expanding its Boca Chica Starship facility (and even going so far as to create a new town called “Starbase” on site, according to the local) News site CBS4) And SpaceX has received a $ 135 million investment in Starship from NASA
