When Elon Musk is trying his best to explore and add in technology to the entire universe then why not give exceptional thoughts a chance. The SpaceX’s CEO has on November 17 declared that it is going to put the idea of upgrading the replaceable second stage on Falcon 9 rockets for reusability on the backstage and instead concentrate more on the production of the reusable two-part rocket, BFR.

Musk has changed the name BFR into two separate names wherein the mondo-sized rover’s reusable first stage will be called Super Heavy booster and the rocketship sitting on the pinnacle of it that will be functioned to carry passengers or cargos to the Moon, Mars, or anywhere will be named Starship. This novel Super Heavy-Starship’s first mission will be to transfer dozens of tiny satellites into orbit in a solitary launch. The major plan of SpaceX is to fill the Earth’s skies with cost-effective and hi-tech broadband internet satellites using Super Heavy-Starship as the baton. SpaceX’s SSO-A mission which was previously contracted by Spaceflight Industries and later sold to customers wanting to send SmallSat Express to orbit has been launched as well as landed successfully. The rocket carrying 64 separate payloads obtained from 34 different customers has given the mammoth company a precious experience.

Right from the start of 2019, the company plans to glue almost 12,000 “Starlink” satellites together so as to achieve the goal of broadband internet access from the widespread space. The prototypes of the Starlink broadband internet satellites will be soon orbiting the Earth and in the later run will require a replacement on a timely basis. The SpaceX’s rocket payload capacity and cost are the limiting factors being focused to overcome. Musk is trying to balance the monetary need through intelligent manufacturing skills. SpaceX on Wednesday, December 5, 2018, has commenced its 16th Commercial Resupply Services mission (CRS-16) to the International Space Station.
