And now over to ____________ with the news
In today’s news, the SpaceX company is progressing the development of its Starship rocket. The latest prototype, Serial Number 15 (SN15), has just completed a successful high-altitude ascent and landing. A small fire licked around the base of the vehicle on touchdown but was soon extinguished. There’s considerable interest in the Starship concept now that NASA has chosen it to land astronauts on the Moon later this decade. Elon Musk, believes the new 50m-tall Starship can do it all, bigger and better – and not just at Earth; he says the technology will get people to Mars.
