The Fully-Loaded Starship Rocket is the Largest Spaceship Ever Built

Standing at over 400 feet tall with both segments assembled.

Elon Musk released photos yesterday of the Starship rocket fully-loaded with the addition of the Super Heavy Booster 4. It was a sight to behold as the all sections of the rocket fully assembled stood at 400 feet tall. They assembled both segments at the Starbase facility in Boca Chica, Texas. Which easily makes the Starship the biggest rocket ever constructed, according to the BBC

The Starship stands at roughly 160 feet tall, while the Super Heavy booster is about 230 feet tall. Collectively known as the Starship. SpaceX says that the Starship is meant to be a “fully reusable transportation system designed to carry both crew and cargo to Earth orbit, the Moon, Mars and beyond.” This powerful rocket will also be able to carry “in excess of 100 metric tonnes to Earth orbit,” it adds.

Back in May, SpaceX successfully completed its fifth high-altitude flight test of a Starship prototype from Starbase. This allows the company to make plans for Starship’s first orbital test flight that will splash down off the coast of Hawaii. The company eventually hopes to launch Japanese entrepreneur Yusaku Maezawa and the crew of dearMoon on a fly-by past the moon in 2023 as part of a week-long journey.
