What is Elon Musk’s starship?

Elon Musk is developing a vehicle that could be a game-changer for space travel known as ‘Starship’ that will be a fully reusable transport system capable of carrying up to 100 people to the Red Planet.

Starship is a rocket and spacecraft combination that could ferry more than 100 people a time. The system is designed to be fully and rapidly reusable.

Being fully reusable means that the principle hardware elements are not discarded in the sea or allowed to burn up as happens with some of other launch systems but will return to the ground so that they can be flown again.

Rapid reusability means that after the Starship coming back from space, it can be re-filled with propellant and be ready to launch again in a short period of time like an aircraft. This will reduces the cost of the whole enterprise.
