SpaceX CEO Elon Musk gave us a first glimpse of his Starship Raptor engine starting in all its kaleidoscopic splendor.
The engine – which will fuel Musk's plans to reach Mars by 2022, will orbit the Earth and send billionaire Yusaku Maezawa to the moon with a group of artists in 2023 – was featured in full screen at the SpaceX facility in Texas.
Musk captured the expanding ship with its radically redesigned engine that projected bright red, purple and white flames. Combined with green 'star dust' fuel stains, the jet shows an extremely powerful rocket fuel flow that sweeps the SpaceX facility.
