Elon Musk collects the largest rocket in the world

Last Friday, August 6, 2021, there was an anticipation of a historic event: Elon Musk published his book
– Calculation photos of the Starship missile, which stands on Super Heavy Booster 4 and therefore has a total height of 120 meters. The stack construction of the two parts at the Starbase facility in Boca Chica, Texas makes it the largest rocket ever built, according to them.

Fully assembled SpaceX spacecraft

The largest rocket in the history of space travel is assembled here.

The Starship SN20 alone is about 50 meters high, and the BN4 superheavy driving stage – the bottom of the giant – rises to another 65 meters. This means that the spacecraft outperformed even NASA’s Saturn V launcher with a total length of 110 metres. The rocket, which is still under development by Elon Musk, is set to support ambitious future SpaceX missions, including a visit to Mars. A few hours after assembly, SpaceX dismantled the spacecraft. After all, the test flight, which was scheduled for July 2021 and which was supposed to fly the spacecraft from Texas to Hawaii at an altitude of 116 kilometers, could not take place. The reason is that the FAA is still reviewing the approval, reports say
. According to the BBC, the government agency is currently conducting an environmental review, which will then lead to a 30-day public consultation. The first orbital flight is still a long way off. However, Musk is planning the trip before the end of this year.
