Elon Musk, the founder of the electric vehicle company SpaceX, has unveiled his new rocket that will send people into space.
The rocket, which has a mass of 5,300kg, will be able to travel at speeds of up to 2,200km/h.
The spacecraft, named the Titan III, will also carry a crew capsule, a probe to study the planet, and a “space capsule” that will help Musk, a billionaire who has built a successful company from scratch, get his company into space faster than ever.
SpaceX will launch the spacecraft from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on May 30.
The company’s new booster will carry the rocket to a launch site in Florida, where it will take three days to reach orbit.
It will then be towed to the launch site, where the rocket will be launched into space by the United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket.
This is the first mission of its kind to be conducted at the Kennedy Space Center.
Musk said in a statement that the mission was “a milestone in the journey to achieve space flight, as we finally hit the point where it is possible for a single spacecraft to go to space.”
He also said the mission “will be the first human flight of the next generation of rocket engines.”
The Titan III is expected to have a mass less than 1,000kg, but Musk said that the rocket’s mass will increase to more than 1.5kg after the spacecraft is deployed on an Atlas V booster.
The mission will also take place at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
Musk has been working on a new rocket for nearly a decade, and he said in the announcement that he has been testing the booster since he was in high school.
Musk described the Titan IV as “the most powerful rocket in history”.
The new rocket will launch from Vandenburg Air Force Range in California, about 50km from the coast of the United States.
This marks the first launch of a commercial rocket from Vandecostal, a former nuclear power plant in the United Kingdom, which was destroyed by a missile attack in 2003.
In his announcement, Musk said the rocket would “go into orbit within weeks”.
He also predicted that he would launch the first payload to space in 2020.
Musk is not the only entrepreneur who is launching rockets from the United Nations space station.
In 2018, SpaceX launched its Falcon 9 rocket from the International Space Station, which carries the first commercial satellite to orbit.
Musk also said that he was launching his own rocket, but he did not specify which one.
“I am currently building a new, much larger rocket,” Musk said.
Musk, who was born in South Korea and is originally from Florida, became a billionaire after selling his personal spaceflight company, SpaceX, for $2.4 billion in 2002.
He has also invested heavily in the private space industry, including a $1 billion loan for the Space Launch System, which Musk said would enable the company to fly its first manned mission in 2021.
The space agency SpaceX is launching the rocket with the US government.
The United Launch Council, which oversees the United Nation’s space programme, is overseeing the mission.
The new mission comes on the heels of SpaceX’s previous attempt to launch a rocket from space, which failed when the launch pad exploded during a test in April 2018.
The launch, which involved three Falcon 9 rockets, was part of a larger mission to launch another SpaceX booster from Vandegrift Air Force base.
