According to Elon Musk, one of the Starship prototypes may start on the surface of Deimos in 2022.

SpaceX has been working for a long time to build a special starting position. This would be Deimos, which would not be located on land but in the ocean. And it seems to be getting closer to doing so.

Elon Musk, the head of the company, shared a fantasy image of Demios on Twitter in which he wrote that the first spaceship, which could be Starship, could be launched from the launch station in 2022. Of course, this is probably just a test flight in practice, but it would still be a very serious step forward in the project.

In 2020, SpaceX bought two oil rigs to convert and create launch positions in the water. From here, spaceships would take off bound for the Moon and Mars. Consequently, one was christened Phobos and the other Deimos, the name of the two moons of Mars.

The first was transported to Pascagoula, Mississippi, USA, and the second to the port of Brownsville, Texas.

TO TechCrunch He noted that Elon Musk had previously said that one could be operational by the end of 2021, but there appeared to be a hasty statement.

SpaceX’s current plan is after the last successful Starship test sends another prototype spacecraft to another, which It would orbit the Earth in 90 minutes.and then come back.
