SpaceX Starship Presentation Set for Feb. 10 at 8pm, Says Elon Musk

SpaceX is set to hold a presentation next week for its Starship rocket, confirmed CEO Elon Musk.

The Starship presentation will take place on Thursday, February 10 at 8pm EST, said Musk.

Musk was detailing how SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket will be launching roughly once per week this year, delivering roughly two-thirds “of all Earth payload to orbit.”

When he was asked about Starship, Musk replied, “Starship is in a different league. Orders of magnitude more mass to orbit than Falcon. Necessary for creating a self-sustaining city on Mars.”

“Starship aspires to be the first fully reusable orbital launch vehicle, the holy grail of rocketry,” added Musk. “This is the critical breakthrough needed to make life multiplanetary.”

Back in December, Musk was asked about when we would get a Starship update. He responded at the time, “hopefully this month, no later than next.”

Of course, we know Musk has ambitious timelines, so January has led to February.

SpaceX’s Starship has yet to experience its first orbital launch, as the flight has been delayed by the Federal Aviation Authority until  the end of this month.
