Where is Starship?

SpaceX wants to make humans an interplanetary species. To obtain this object, a new rocket is needed, one that can make spaceflight more affordable. That rocket is currently named the Starship, with the Super Heavy Booster. Together this has been refered to as the “Starship Launch System”, although never in a very formal capacity. Previously it was known as the Big Falcon Rocket, or BFR for short. It will use the Raptor Methane- Oxygen (Methalox) engine to launch these powerful loads in to space.

Starship and Super Heavy ready to launch! Raptor Engine Test Firing

But where is that rocket now? Right now it is being built in the open in South Texas and near Cape Canaveral, Florida. The Raptor Engines are being built at the main SpaceX facility in Los Angeles. Starhopper, a test article, is being constructed at the SpaceX Launch Site near Starbase, formerly Boca Chica, Texas. The Raptor Engines are being tested near McGregor, Texas.

Starship and Super Heavy are preparing for their first ever orbital launch, which will be from Starbase, Texas. It will reenter just before completing a full orbit near Hawaii if all goes to plan.

What might it be like to be on that journey? I recorded several videos showing what that just might look like, hear me explain.
