SpaceX often releases pictures of its future spacecraft doing something extraordinary like being on Mars. The latest one is that SpaceX provides an overview of the Parked Starship on the Moon.
SpaceX founder Elon Musk tweeted the stainless steel rendering parked starship on the Moon. The picture shows Starship with the Moon hill behind it and the Earth shines from a distance.
Parked Starship As a Warranty of Future Space Trip Plan
Citing Cnet on Tuesday (4/30/2019), Musk responded to the question about the possibility that Starship would land safely in a perfectly uneven area like the surface of the Moon. He also said that might happen.
SpaceX currently plans to load Starship with artists and send it on a trip around the Moon in 2023. But, there are no plans for the mission to land on the surface of the Moon.
Spacecraft is still in the early stages of development. A hopper prototype made its first small test leap in early April.
On the other hand, Musk also tweaked the shiny version of Starship near human settlements on Mars. The previous vision for Starship showed a design more like a modern spacecraft.
SpaceX has long had the desire to bring humans to Mars someday. The picture given by Musk is something interesting.
