The most powerful rocket in the world
Starship is the most powerful rocket in the world. It consists of a ship and a booster called Super Heavy. Both modules together are as much as 120 meters high – it is the largest rocket ever built. The Starship is to carry astronauts to the Moon during the Artemis III mission, and eventually also take people to Mars.
SpaceX conducted the first test flight of Starship on April 20, 2023, but the rocket malfunctioned and was intentionally detonated minutes after launch.
