SPACEX CEO Elon Musk has revealed that updates to his Starship rocket plan will be announced at a presentation next week.
It’s been over two years since the last Starship update.
Starship is the rocket that Musk hopes will send humans to Mars.
He plans to do this by 2050.
Musk will give a presentation next Thursday about Starship.
The giant rocket is being developed at the SpaceX test facility in Boca Chica, Texas.
SpaceX has been working on it for the past few years.
It was designed to be fully reusable and launched on top of a giant booster called the Super Heavy.
SpaceX has conducted a number of tests with Starship but has not yet put it into orbit.
The company will need Federal Aviation Administration approval to do this from Boca Chica.
Musk has been giving regular presentations on Starship since 2016.
The billionaire recently tweeted a fan to say that the next presentation will be on Thursday, February 10 at 8 p.m. “Texas time.”
That’s 9pm ET and 2am GMT.
There are no other details about the event but fans should keep an eye on SpaceX’s Twitter.
