FREMONT, CA: Elon Musk owned SpaceX hosted a Starship career day at its facility near the South Texas village of Boca Chica to speed up the Mars colonization mission. The company's new Starship rocket is being built at the same facility. The spacecraft is 165 feet tall and is being developed to transport people to the moon, Mars, and other deep-space destinations.
"This is mainly for staffing up four production shifts for 24/7 operations, but engineers, supervisors & support personnel are certainly needed too. A super hardcore work ethic, talent for building things, common sense & trustworthiness are required, the rest we can train," said SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk.
The Starship spacecraft will be launched atop of the Super Heavy rocket, both of which are reusable. The Starship, by itself, is powerful enough to lift itself off from the Moon and Mars, where the gravitational clutch is much weaker than that of the Earth's. SpaceX, in an attempt to speed up production dates, has set a deadline of September for the Starship to achieve at least 12 miles of flight.
Until date, the only version of Starship to get off the ground to date is a single-engine prototype called Starhopper, which made a few brief test flights last year before being retired. However, this could all change very soon as SpaceX has filed paperwork with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission to launch a 12-mile-high test flight with the Starship between March and September this year. If all goes as per SpaceX's plans, the Mars Colonization mission will surely pick up the pace.
The first operational missions, which are likely to carry commercial communication satellites, are expected to launch early next year. The company has already one crewed Starship mission on the docket. Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa has booked the vehicle on an around-the-moon flight, with a targeted launch date of 2023.
