The CEO shared an image by Japanese artist Shigeru Komatsuzaki from 1968 titled ‘Space Ark’, which depicts pairs of animals boarding onto a futuristic spacecraft.

The SpaceX boss tweeted, “Starship takes beings of Earth to Mars.”

Recently, the company completed a static fire test of Starship’s Booster 7 rocket at the company’s Starbase facility in Texas, having already performed several flight tests of earlier Starship prototypes.

There is a probability of at least one more static fire test of the booster before SpaceX attempts the first ever orbital flight of Starship.

If it turns successful, it will be the most powerful rocket to ever fly, overtaking Nasa’s recently launched Space Launch System (SLS) moon rocket.
With all 33 raptor engines firing, Starship is expected to produce more than 7.25 million kg of thrust – almost double of Nasa’s SLS.
