Elon Musk posts Starship Raptor rocket engine test

Accepted submission by realDonaldTrump at 2019-02-04 09:50:58

"Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX, on Sunday posted a video of the 'first firing' of SpaceX's Starship Raptor flight engine that he hopes will eventually be used on an interplanetary spacecraft.


CNet reported that Musk’s goal is to pair the Starship with a super heavy rocket that will use up to 31 of these Raptor engines and eventually transport passengers to Mars." [] The Video Links are the Falcon 9 (Car in Space). But maybe they'll get the right Video later.

Congratulations SpaceX & Elon on a job well done!!
