Starship is a two-stage super heavy-lift launch vehicle under development, designed to be fully reusable. It consists of the Super Heavy booster and the Starship spacecraft, both powered by Raptor engines burning liquid methane and oxygen. The spacecraft is constructed primarily of stainless steel, chosen for its strength and heat resistance. The vehicle aims for a high payload capacity and is integral to SpaceX's Mars colonization ambitions. Starship's development follows an iterative approach with test flights, often leading to modifications based on performance data.
