SpaceX has no plans to pay more attention to Crew Dragon, despite the fact that he is now in orbit. CNBC said it received an email from Elon Musk asking it to consider Starship as “SpaceX’s top priority.” They are trying to speed up this project right now. “The only thing that can distract us from Starship is that it can create a risk for the return of the Crew Dragon,” Musk said.
Starship is ultimately designed to become the SpaceX space rocket. It will not only have sufficient power for space tourism and long-distance travel, but will also be a truly reusable rocket with fast turnaround times, which will make space flight more accessible. Starship represents the future of the company – a series of explosions and other setbacks actually threw off the broader ambitions of the company.
However, this does not mean that SpaceX will neglect existing projects. The crew of Crew Dragon have not yet begun regular service. However, you can see how they quickly fade into the background when SpaceX puts its energy into its flagship project.
Starship is a new-generation manned spacecraft developed by the privately owned US company SpaceX. Starship is significantly larger in mass and size than the existing SpaceX Falcon 9 rockets, and is designed to put more than 100 tons of payload into low orbit.
SpaceX’s goal is to launch Starship to Mars with cargo in 2022, followed by a manned flight in 2024.
