SpaceX showed off a fully fueled Starship rocket covered in ice

SpaceX showcased a fully loaded Starship rocket. his video sent from Twitter.

The video shows that the stages of the rocket are interconnected and installed in the launch complex. “Starship has completed its first flight-like dress rehearsal. “The Ship and Booster has been assembled for the first time and fully filled with 10 million pounds (4.5 million kg) of fuel,” the company said in a statement. The fact that the ship is fully fueled is evidenced by the ice (frost) cover of the rocket. It is located inside the fuselage where fuel tanks filled with liquid methane and oxygen are placed. The exception is one of the sides of the upper stage, covered with black thermal protection, which is also a heat insulator.

Starship is a next-generation, super-heavy, fully reusable rocket with both stages landing on its tail. Its main feature should be the ability to launch 100 tons of cargo into orbit on a ship integrated with the upper tier and refuel this ship using modified upper tier fuel tankers. It is Starship that will have to get astronauts to the moon under the NASA Artemis program in the second half of the 2020s.
