The Real Deal
Musk also shared a few more details on the rocket in a follow-up tweet: “This is for suborbital VTOL [vertical take-off and landing] tests.
Orbital version is taller, has thicker skins (won’t wrinkle) a smoothly curving nose section.”
Those suborbital VTOL tests could take place as soon as February, according to Musk.
As for when we’ll get a chance to see an orbital version, Musk claims that could happen in June.
Starship In Action
Once these tests are complete, SpaceX has many plans for Starship.
