Elon Musk said that SpaceX, which has been making controlled landings of its Falcon 9 boosters, will attempt to catch the Super Heavy boosters with a launch tower arm instead. If successful, this will result in additional cost savings, while also reducing the weight of the rocket. How so? The booster will not need to be equipped with legs, thus allowing for it to be immediately repositioned onto the launch mount for reuse in under an hour.

The final version of Starship should be able to carry up to 100 passengers into space or on short transcontinental flights that reach the edge of space. For space missions, the upper stage of Starship not only functions as a second stage to reach orbital velocity on launches from Earth, but an on-orbit long-duration spacecraft as well. Its design can reach other planets and moons in the solar system after on-orbit propellant loading.
