It's an awe-inspiring thought, but it does seem like we're really on the cusp of a new era of human space travel. And no one seems to be in more of a rush than Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX.

In a somewhat unforeseen move, the visionary entrepreneur recently wrote a tweet where he announced a new presentation of SpaceX's Starship. It wasn't in the form of a dedicated tweet, but as a response to a question asked by a regular fan. It will be shown on Thursday, February 10 at 8pm Texas time.

No further details have been given as to what announcements will be made, but considering that Musk stated that the spacecraft could perform an orbital flight early this year, a specific date seems likely.

While details are scarce indeed, the presentation will likely be shared on SpaceX's homepage.

Starship

Starship consists of the spacecraft itself and Super Heavy Rocket, both reusable. It's intended to carry both cargo and humans to orbit, the Moon, Mars and, more intriguingly: beyond.

It can carry payloads considerably larger than rockets currently available. A number claimed is over 100 metric tonnes to orbit. It made its first successful flight on May 5 of 2021.

If it wasn't clear that SpaceX is serious about moving ahead quickly, intentions are to perform the first-ever private lunar mission soon. By 2023, Japanese entrepreneur Yusaku Maezawa, along with the dearMoon crew will fly around the moon in a Starship.
