Elon Musk announced Monday that he expects SpaceX’s Starship to take its first orbital flight by May. The company is planning to churn out Raptor engines to make that happen.

According to SpaceX’s website, Starship is expected to change what is assessable to space. Starship, which is made up of a super-heavy booster, will be a fully reusable spacecraft that can carry both crew and cargo to Earth, the Moon, Mars and more at a low operating cost.

It’s about 400 feet fall and powered by SpaceX’s Raptor series of engines, which are “much more capable and reliable,” according to the CEO.

“We’ll have 39 flightworthy engines built by next month, then another month to integrate, so hopefully May for orbital flight test,” Musk tweeted in response to CNBC.

CNBC Space Reporter, Michael Sheetz, mentioned in his tweet that “U.S. space companies are poised to benefit from Russia cutting itself off from much of the global space industry, with SpaceX ‘the clear winner’ in the launch market.”

Musk, in a response to CNBC, said that SpaceX does not expect to see a dramatic increase in the demand for launches to orbit this year. Earlier, SpaceX expected to launch about 65% of all the world’s spacecraft flying to orbit this year. But, after Russia’s step back from the market, “incremental demand might take that to ~70%, so not a major change,” Musk said.

The prototypes of the spacecraft have already completed high-altitude flights. However, the spacecraft is yet to make it to space. 

Over the past year, some regulatory issues have caused delays in its launch. One of the obstruction being the procurement of a license from the Federal Aviation Administration. The review has been delayed several times and is now expected to come out no earlier than March 28.
