SpaceX 18m Starship vs 12m Starship (ITS) vs 9m Starship

Three sizes of SpaceX's Starship side by side by Scottish photographer & designer Dale Rutherford:
  • 18m diameter Starship hinted by Elon Musk as the possible next generation Starship (in artist's vision it's not supposed to land on planets so no fins and legs);
  • 12m diameter Starship version (ITS) presented in 2016;
  • 9m diameter current Starship design.

NASA selects SpaceX's lunar optimized Starship for Artemis program

Today NASA announced that three US companies - SpaceX, Blue Origin & Dynetics - will develop the human landers that will land astronauts on the Moon beginning in 2024 as part of the Artemis program. And SpaceX shared some renders of the "lunar optimized Starship" which is developed "to transport crew between lunar orbit and the surface of the Moon". SpaceX added that "a lunar optimized Starship can fly many times between the surface of the Moon and lunar orbit without flaps or heat shielding required for Earth return. With large habitable and storage volume, Starship is capable of delivering significant amounts of cargo for research and to support robust operations on the lunar surface to enable a sustainable Moon base."
