Saturn V and SpaceX Starship at launch pad by Gravitation Innovation

Today 50 years ago the most powerful rocket ever built - Saturn V - launched first astronauts to set foot on the Moon. But right now the leading NewSpace company SpaceX is building even more powerful rocket for Mars - Starship & Super Heavy. SpaceX is hoping it to be operational in 2021.

Here is a poster by Gravitation Innovation with Saturn V and SpaceX Starship at launch pad. Note the Starship is at front so it appears a lot bigger than Saturn V at back. In reality the difference in height is minimal with Saturn V being 111 m high and Starship & Super Heavy at 118 m by current design which is subject to change.

SpaceX Super Heavy block 1 will have landing legs as Starship

Elon Musk has confirmed that the initial version (we will call it block 1) of SpaceX's Super Heavy booster will have similar landing legs as the Starship and only later versions of Super Heavy will/may land back on its launch mount. Reese Wilson has made unofficial render of the most recent design for full stack Starship & Super Heavy.

Support for a SpaceX Starship & Super Heavy LEGO set

SpaceX Starship & Super Heavy LEGO set - cover
"Saturn V LEGO set" co-designer Valerie Roche and her "SpaceX – The Ultimate Collection" co-designer Matthew Nolan, along with fellow LEGO fan designer Mark Nolan have created a 1:110 scale LEGO set of SpaceX's stainless steel Starship & Super Heavy (previously known together as Big Falcon Rocket). The creators promise to frequently update the design of the set as SpaceX announces new design changes for Starship & Super Heavy.

To make this set a reality, inspiring the children (and not only them) about spaceflight, the creators need our support to reach 10'000 votes on LEGO Ideas. There are 2499 votes for now.

Please, go HERE and click "Support"!


Here are some images from the design. Open link in new tab to view image in full resolution.
