  1. Beautiful rendering. Let's please not forget about the ceramic tiles, however! Ceramic hexagonal heat shield tiles will cover the side facing away from the viewports, as well as fin undersides, and fin edges and the nose will have some kind of heat shielding - probably ceramic.

    1. Perhaps. We would either have to discover a metal alloy (or other shiny material) that has a higher melting point, or switch to a much more efficient form of propulsion, such as fusion, so that we could decelerate before hitting the atmosphere; but if the latter, then the first stage would not be needed! Regardless, it is a beautiful rendering. I have this rendering as one of my laptop backgrounds: https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-nmoDY466U8M/XIgST1bqk-I/AAAAAAAADg4/BjNIOxs2Hicq03Zz8DTQx_HGNnUGKesDwCEwYBhgL/s2048/SpaceX%2BStarship%2Bprepared%2Bfor%2Blaunch%2Bby%2BGravitation%2BInnovation.jpg
