Web Desk: SpaceX has been steadily working on a larger project. CEO Elon Musk took social media early Christmas eve to share a photo of a new rocket.
This is a photo of SpaceX Starship. It is a massive rocket Space X that will be used to send people on lightning fast international flights through space, as well as to send them to Mars.

The design makes this spacecraft fare more powerful than the original Falcon Heavy, which itself is currently the most powerful rocket in service anywhere. The Starship will have a liftoff thrust of 5,400 tons, far more than the Falcon Heavy’s 2,500 tons. In the photo, you can see that just the nose cone stands multiple stories tall.
