The spacecraft is composed of a new generation Driven by the Raptor engine group, 6 engines are used to drive the spacecraft, and 30 engines are used to drive the super-heavy rocket. The engine has sufficient power to make the spacecraft leave the orbit of the earth. Musk once said that the power of the starship spacecraft is sufficient. It can be launched on the moon and Mars.
Currently, the SN9 prototype spacecraft is equipped with three “Raptor” engines, which are the same as the SN8 prototype spacecraft. It is reported that in December 2020, the SN8 prototype spacecraft carried out a test flight. explosion.
