  1. Pretty cool! But it seems to be missing the oxygen header tank in the tip of the nose cone.

    1. Don't know artist's reasoning, but if Lunar Starship stays on the Moon and lands with methane thrusters, would it need an oxygen header tank? Maybe for Lunar orbital insertion burn before landing?

  2. I second the missing header tank. Personally I think it should be integrated in the LOX tank, but they've put it in the nose, which bothers me because it would take up the forward half of the "Grand Window" in Mars versions, giving people an unnecessarily great view of the header tank. Will they move the window or the header tank in future versions? Time will tell...

  3. I had read somewhere that the LOX tank in the nose is for balance since the top half of SS is air.

  4. НЕпонятно, где система аварийного спасения (САС как у Союза)? И как вся эта массма людей (100 чел) будет выходить после посадки?

    1. Starship doesn't have an emergency escape system. Maybe it should have but it's not in the design currently.
