SpaceX stainless steel Starship prototype by Owen Egan

Concept render of SpaceX's stainless steel Starship prototype by British graphic designer Owen Egan (known on NASASpaceFlight.com forum as "tea monster"). More of his art here.

SpaceX has already built the first prototype Starship test vehicle (Starhopper) without any nose cone at its Boca Chica launch facility in South Texas, mated it with a single Raptor engine and conducted several hop test. Starhopper lifted up for about 20 meters in the last test. Simultaneously SpaceX is already building two next generation test vehicles – Starship Mk 1 in Boca Chica and Starship Mk 2 in Cocoa, Florida. Mk 1 will fly up to an altitude of 20 kilometers in a few months.
