Elon Musk's private space firm has been developing a spacecraft capable of landing humans on other worlds.
Designed to serve as the reusable second stage of the Big Falcon Rocket (BFR), Starship will also be able to carry astronauts and cargo all the way to the surface of Mars.

The spacecraft has undergone several name changes since it was first announced, having previously transitioned from Mars Colonial Transporter (MCT) to Interplanetary Transport System (ITS).

Now Elon Musk has revealed that a full update on the project will be coming on August 24th at either Cape Canaveral in Florida or Boca Chica in Texas, which is where a prototype was recently tested.
Writing on Twitter, he stated that the update would include a "detailed review of the first orbital Starship, explaining the pros and cons of each design decision."

"We should have Starship Mk1 with 3 Raptors almost ready to fly by then," he said.

It will certainly be interesting to see how things are progressing.
