Cost of Starship
The Starship program from idea to inception most likely cost around $2 billion. Each individual Starship will not cost that much, however. An individual Starship rocket costs about $240 million - still a hefty sum of money.
Size of Starship and Power
It uses six Raptor engines and liquid methane and oxygen are its fuel. They provide about 31 million Newtons of thrust.
Getting to Mars
Elon Musk has stated that he wants to colonize Mars. At one point, he thought 2024 might be possible, but that's looking very unlikely. Most likely, it's going to be toward the end of this decade or beyond.
There will need to be multiple success launches with Starship to the point it is very predictable if it is going to be successful or not.
Starship is massive and expensive. Hopefully Starship doesn't explode when it launches. If it does, however, SpaceX will gather data and correct what went wrong and eventually get a launch done that doesn't explode. Eventually, they will have regular launches without issue.
Do you think Starship will explode when it launches?
