SpaceX Starship + Super Heavy compared to Saturn V & Falcon 9 by Kimi Talvitie

Comparison of 1) the full stack Starship + Super Heavy (SpaceX's Big Falcon Rocket), 2) the most powerful rocket ever built (till the Big Falcon Rocket will be built) - Saturn V - and 3) today's workhorse of SpaceX - Falcon 9; made by Finnish 3D artist Kimi Talvitie. Comparison of Starhopper, Starship, Super Heavy, Falcon 9 and Starship + Super Heavy here.

SpaceX Starhopper launch by Owen Egan

Concept images of SpaceX's stainless steel Starship test vehicle (Starhopper) by British graphic designer Owen Egan (known on NASASpaceFlight.com forum as "tea monster"). The Starhopper is not shy of its wrinkles :) More of Owen's art here.

The SpaceX's Starship test vehicle (being a bit shorter, ~40 meters, than the full-scale Starship) is built in Boca Chica, Texas and scheduled to fly first test flights on March/April 2019.
