SpaceX’s Starship spacecraft and Super Heavy rocket (collectively referred to as Starship) represent a fully reusable transportation system designed to carry both crew and cargo to Earth orbit, the Moon, Mars and beyond. Starship will be the world’s most powerful launch vehicle ever developed, with the ability to carry in excess of 100 metric tonnes to Earth orbit.

OVERVIEW

HEIGHT120 m / 394 ft
DIAMETER9 m / 30 ft
PAYLOAD TO LEO100+ t / 220+ klb

Starship is the fully reusable spacecraft and second stage of the Starship system. It offers an integrated payload section and is capable of carrying passengers and cargo to Earth orbit, planetary destinations, and between destinations on Earth.

HEIGHT50 m / 160 ft
DIAMETER9 m / 30 ft
PROPELLANT CAPACITY1200 t / 2.6 Mlb
PAYLOAD CAPACITY100+ t / 220+ klb

The first stage, or booster, of our next-generation launch system has a gross liftoff mass of over 3 million kg and uses sub-cooled liquid methane and liquid oxygen (CH4/LOX) propellants. The booster will return to land at the launch site on its 6 legs.

PROPELLANT CAPACITY3400 t / 6.8 Mlb
THRUST72 MN / 16 Mlbf



The Raptor engine is a reusable methalox staged-combustion engine that powers the Starship launch system. Raptor engines began flight testing on the Starship prototype rockets in July 2019, becoming the first full-flow staged combustion rocket engine ever flown.

The Starship payload fairing is 9 m in diameter and 18 m high, resulting in the largest usable payload volume of any current or in development launcher. This payload volume can be configured for both crew and cargo.
