SpaceX: https://www.spacex.com/starship
Starship is intended to be 100% reusable super-heavy-lift spacecraft system.

There are prototypes under construction. Lots of cool pictures and discussion here: https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?board=72.0

An initial test flight is coming "soon":

(apparently 12,000 people on robinhood bought tsla for first time yesterday).
Sadly, those people might learn the hard way the answer to "How do you make a small fortune in the stock market?".
(spoiler: start with a large fortune)
I like it. It's like how do you become a millionaire in Formula 1? Start as a billionaire.

The stock closed at $900+ today. I want to short it but the volatility is so massive that buying puts are outrageously expensive. The whole thing is just like a room full of people shooting each other in a circle. Good on anybody who has turned $5k into $100k as I'm sure reddit.com/r/wallstreetbets is full of right now.

Mars or fossil fuel reduction? Pick one.
These are not mutually exclusive. To suggest so is silly.

Besides, once we get to Mars, there is no fossil fuel.

For everyone thus far who missed out on TSLA, don't feel too bad. The shorts may have taken the worst, but aren't the only ones who took it in the pants:

I think it was actually $887.06, in USD at least, but who's counting?

Then Musk's plans are silly.

I think those not seeing the bigger picture may be missing that Tesla Energy would be a front runner for producing that rocket fuel, from renewable energy of course.

Renewable energy will be replacing fossil energy over decades. Any diverted to make rocket fuel here, or worse on Mars, will slow this process. First launch to Mars Musk has announced will be in 2022. That takes a huge blunt to believe.

I give him huge props for trying in a “in my lifetime” timespan to get to Mars. NASA lost its way.
