However, he said that ‘we are very close to solving it.’ It is expected to increase production to about seven-eight engines a week by next month and a new starship and booster every month by the end of the year. Elon Musk also expressed confidence that Starship will reach Earth orbit this year. He said such a time frame would set an ambitious milestone for the flight. The Falcon 9 rocket has been very important for SpaceX. So far 144 successful launches have been done through this.
However, the future of the Boca Chica test-flight and production facility in Texas is now in the hands of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which is conducting an environmental assessment of the site. Asked what he knew about the FAA review. Musk said that we are not aware of this, but there have been indications that approval may be given by March.
The company is also preparing for a launch in 2023. It calls this the world’s first private moon mission. Under this mission, Japanese entrepreneur Yusaku Maezawa and a dozen people are to be taken on a journey to the moon.
SpaceX’s preparations are big. She wants to bring satellite internet to the world through Starlink. Recently this ambitious plan of his has got a setback. On February 3, SpaceX launched 49 satellites into their orbit, but a geomagnetic storm destroyed about 40 of them. SpaceX said the storm caused 50 percent more obstruction than the previous launch, preventing satellites from reaching their proper orbit in Earth.
