  • SpaceX To Launch Test Prototype For Mars Rocket

    Business Insider reports SpaceX is set to test-launch its first prototype of a rocket ship designed to send people to Mars. The "Test Hopper" prototype may be tested as soon as Monday, according to a notice sent to some residents near Boca Chica Beach at the southern tip of Texas. Founder Elon Musk said early last year that SpaceX's Boca Chica test site "will be dedicated to" the Mars vehicle called Starship.

Musk hopes the Starship can reach orbit in 2020, send its first crew around the moon in 2023, and launch the first people toward Mars in 2024.
