According to Elon Musk about Space X:
Mighty Starship that uses Raptor engine:
Elon Musk as CEO of the Space X recently said to 25 million that we are going to build a city in Mars by 2050.
After the huge success of Tesla. He is currently working on a Starship that makes his dream possible. This Starship uses Raptor engine that uses liquid oxygen and methane instead of the rocket propellant used for the Falcon 9’s Merlin engines. SpaceX hopes to one-day use to transport up to 100 people to destinations including the Moon and Mars, with theses Raptor engine. SpaceX performed the first static fire test of a Raptor rocket engine for its Starship test flight rocket on 3 February 2019
What is Orbital Synchronization?
Is the dream of human beings of discovering and colonializing in the space ever came to true. Well if you read carefully the tweet, in the last he used the world Orbital Synchronization.
Elon Musk is referring to the point when the Earth and Mars are in closest alignment, which occurs around every 26 months.
That’s the ideal time for a launch, as the distance between the two is reduced to around 33.9 million miles. Because the two planets follow an egg-shaped orbit, not every alignment is equal. Elon Musk could take advantage of the coming synchronizations.
In this, he clearly stated that at first, Space X start with reaching to the moon and then to Mars when orbital Synchronization happen.
According to NASA 2003 approach was the closest in 60,000 years, and it’s not expected to come that close again until 2287. But don’t lose your heart it is possible also in 2023 and 2024.
After reaching to Mars: What Happens Now?
Starship is made of stainless steel construction looks decidedly futuristic, but it lacks many of the final version’s features, like windows.
The plan of Space X is to use one of the Hopper’s three engines to complete minor jumps off the ground, before moving to more ambitious suborbital flights using all three.
A trip to Moon By 2023:
SpaceX is expected to send Japanese billionaire Yukazu Maezawa, alongside six to eight artists, on a trip around the moon using the Starship. Musk suggested that this year at least two unmanned ships could make their way to Mars.
Elon Musk said that:
“I feel fairly confident that we can complete the ship and prepare the ship for launch in about five years,” he said. “Five years feels like a long time to me.”
And finally Mars By 2024:
If the mission of sending the man to the moon become successful for the Space X then the next plan is to send two cargo ships, alongside two crew ships taking the first people to Mars. They will be assigned tasked with setting up a propellant production plant, combining Martian water, ice, and carbon dioxide to create methane and liquid oxygen to fuel the ships and come back home.
Elon Musk is a man of making his dreams into reality. He dreams of building multiple cities and many more things after completing his first milestones.
Animated Moon based theory:
Well, this animation also helps you imagine how we are going to do all of this by using Space X:
What do you guys think, will all this ever going to happen, is traveling to space and building colonies there is ever going to be possible?
