Elon Musk Promises To Land Starship On the Moon Before NASA

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has promised some changes on SpaceX’s new spacecraft Starship. It is a reusable second stage and space vehicle. According to the entrepreneur, his company can land on the lunar land before NASA, the American space agency. SpaceX (Space Exploration Technologies Corp) is a private US aerospace manufacturer and space transport service company. Elon Musk had founded the company in 2002, at Hawthrone, California. Recently the company has launched a reusable space vehicle – Starship. It is long-running shipping and passenger-carrying aircraft which often acts as a BFR launcher second stage and integral play load section.

SpaceX founder Mr. Elon Musk has recently announced that this aircraft would share detail review of the first orbital starship. He added the company would require to build superfluous groundwork near to the landing facility for the reusable rocket in Cape Canaveral. As per Musk, it would be easier for the company to land on the moon than trying to convince NASA. At this moment, the starship has only completed its suborbital hops but could land on the moon before NASA. Starship has the potential to carry astronauts back to the moon and potentially to Mars.

He has also confirmed that SpaceX aims and ultimately launch the Starship, a reusable second stage and space vehicle for lunar and Mars missions. It is projected that there is a space race going on right now. A new introductory planning schedule for NASA program notes that SpaceX might eventually be the victor. Still, it’s far from a sure thing. On the other hand, NASA has engaged Boeing to construct the Starliner, and spend dollars at SpaceX to build the Crew Dragon. Both spacecraft will eventually carry NASA astronauts into space from earth, which is a significant agreement for the space agency, but the company has not made such statement yet. According to Musk, SpaceX could beat NASA and could land on the moon in the upcoming two years.
