Elon Musk and Twitter users counts Starship trips to build city on Mars



SpaceX Starship

Starship is the future of space transportation and its payload capacity will play a key role in space exploration, however, Elon Musk and Twitter users now began to discuss how many trips it will have to make a city on Mars.

Twitter user Mathias Fons shared a post that Space has launched over 1000 metric tons worth of payload into different orbits. Meanwhile, the upcoming Starship could take up to 100+ tons in one mission.

Also reminded us of Elon’s past statement that we gonna need at least 1 million tons of cargo to build a self-sustaining city on Mars.

Elon replied that Starship could take “Probably more”, as Starship has 18 meters of payload height, 9 meters of payload fairing diameter, 1100 meters of cube payload volume, and 100+ tons of useful mass.

What’s payload:

The scientific or technological instrument carried on board a satellite for a specific purpose is termed a payload.
