China Beats Elon Musk’s SpaceX!
SpaceX’s Starship, the biggest and most powerful rocket ever built, recently had its maiden space launch from the company’s Starbase facility in Texas. Starship is one of the methane-fueled rockets that is designed for safe and reliable transportation of payloads and people into Earth’s orbit and beyond. And China has beaten it by launching Zhuque-2, the first methane-fueled rocket to reach orbit. The Era of the New Space Race has begun. Musk has NASA’s support, whereas China is well-funded by its government.
