NASAs bold bet on Starship for the Moon may change space­flight for­ever

By bet­ting on Starship, which en­tails a host of de­vel­op­ment risks, NASA is tak­ing a chance on what would be a much brighter fu­ture. One in which not a hand­ful of as­tro­nauts go to the Moon or Mars, but dozens and then hun­dreds. In this sense, Starship rep­re­sents a rad­i­cal de­par­ture for NASA and hu­man ex­plo­ration.
