Elon Musk likes to think big. His electric cars are widely admired, his solar batteries now power parts of Australian cities, and his re-useable rockets have amazed even NASA engineers. Now Musk has developed a huge rocket that may one day carry people to the Moon and Mars. He unvailed his Starship, assembled at SpaceX facilities in Texas, with a retro look that surely Buck Rogers would have admired.

The first launch is scheduled within several weeks. On to Mars, indeed!
