Prototype SpaceX spacecraft aims to help bring man to Mars
SpaceX is one of Elon Musk’s most ambitious projects that aims to revolutionize space travel with his company. The development of new Space vehicles is still being done, with the new prototype using components from a well-known Earth vehicle!
The new prototype ‘Starship’, which is in full development, will apparently use Tesla vehicle batteries, namely Model S and Model X. This is what the latest photos taken at Space X are developing their ship indicate, Boca Chica in Texas. These photos were shared on the NASA Space Flight forum by user bocachicagirl.
By analyzing the photographs, it is possible to estimate that they are using four Tesla battery packs. In total, these batteries provide up to 400 kWh of power.
The synergy applied in the development of ‘Starship’ is not a debut in Elon Musk’s companies. Tesla vehicles have already resorted to technologies developed by Space X, and it is rumored that the Tesla Roadster will be next.
The Starship MK1, according to the US billionaire, is already at an advanced stage of development. In this sense, Elon Musk will hold a presentation next Saturday to talk about the design of this spaceship.
What will the price of a trip to Mars by SpaceX cost? Elon Musk has already revealed.
