In the run-up to his ultimate goal of landing humans on Mars, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has now unveiled a new conceptual image of what his spacecraft would look like on its way to Mars.
Take from Twitter To showcase the company’s designs, Musk posted a photo of what appear to be two thin, silver rockets docked in a paid launch in preparation for an upcoming trip to the last frontier with the caption “We’re Going Them Soon. make it real âand a follow-up explaining that they areâ spaceships to Mars â. While a manned mission to the Red Planet remains for years to come, progress continues to take place with the CEO revealing earlier last week that construction of orbital launch pads for his spaceships at Cape Canaveral has already begun.
The new developments probably come as no surprise after Musk’s comments earlier this month when he warned SpaceX employees that the company was at risk of bankruptcy due to issues with the production of its Raptor engine. âRaptor’s production crisis is much worse than it seemed a few weeks ago,â he wrote in a company-wide email a day after Thanksgiving. âWhile we deepened the problems after the departure of the previous management, they unfortunately turned out to be much more serious than what had been reported. ”
âWe face a real risk of bankruptcy if we cannot achieve a Starship theft rate of at least once every two weeks next year,â he added. “We need everyone on the bridge to recover from what is, frankly, a disaster.”
