SpaceX's Starship vehicle
will operate like a gigantic flying Pez dispenser on some missions, if all goes according to plan.
When it comes online,
Starship will be the biggest and most powerful space transportation system ever built.
SpaceX is developing the
vehicle to take people and cargo to the moon and Mars and to perform a variety of other spaceflight tasks
Starlink 2.0 satellites
will be much more capable and much bigger, each of them tipping the scales at about 1.25 tons here on Earth
That's too hefty
for the Falcon 9 to handle, at least in the big batches that SpaceX likes to loft.
"is the only thing that can carry the Starlink 2 satellites," SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk said
