SpaceX BFR getting Ready for a Ride with Steel to Space and Space Capsule

SpaceX Star Ship is getting assembled for the Test Flight

WCD Times Elon Musk tweeted what he hopes to be final look or Starship test vehicle. we should start hopper flights as early as April of this year. The starship is all metallic windowless craft that will test wrapped engines to their maximum. As test craft is ordered to do number of flight maneuvers in coming months

The craft not more than half the heart of the actual full scale space extortion, Which will be built towards the end of this month 2019, is powered by three powerful wrapped engines. Each producing over 200 tons of lift or combined lift of around 605 tons. When completed, the SpaceX Starship will be the largest spacecraft ever built.

a Major accomplishment on its own but, the facts basics will use starship to land on Mars, the moon and believe a large payload to low Earth orbit. Among many other missions proposed by SpaceX, SpaceX plans to build a fleet of starships also known as BFR before a very first manned mission to Mars in the mid-2020s. However before SpaceX commits to what is one of the biggest steps in human history, SpaceX plans to test the concept to its destruction. Hopper flights will provide all important performance information on raptor engine’s characteristics and also starship design. Hopper test will continue into 2019, even when the full-scale starships are built and only into 2020.

I must admit when I first saw the craft I had my doubts it is airworthy, the contraption seen like something out of Tintin. The turn but Elon Musk has every confidence it will fly. SpaceX did apply for FCC license to operate radio equipment and altitude for tests. That lasts between one and five minutes and outages between 500 and 5,000 meters, which looks like the test rig are the real deal that being said.

I do wonder why did he go with the stainless steel, I mean the thing will never go beyond 5,000 meters so no re-entry issues, wouldn’t be better using composites for this project after all. Composites lighter than stainless steel, So what do you think?
