To do that, it'll try to replace all of its current launch vehicles, including Falcon 9, and the larger Falcon Heavy it hopes to launch this year, along with its Dragon transportation capsule with one ship, and one booster. "So what we plan to do is to build ahead and have a stock of Falcon 9 and Dragon vehicles, so that customers can be comfortable - if they want to use the old rocket, the old spacecraft, they can do that, because we'll have a bunch in stock".
Elon Musk took to the stage at the International Astronautical Congress in Australia on Thursday night to further his push for travel to - and colonization of - Mars. There, they board the same rocket that Musk wants to use to send humans to Mars by 2024.
Just 39 minutes and some 7,000 miles later, the ship reenters the atmosphere and touches down on another floating pad, much like the way SpaceX lands its Falcon 9 rockets at sea. "Then, all resources used for all can be applied to this system".
Mr Musk travelled to Jamestown, in SA's mid-north, on Friday where construction of the 100-megawatt battery is well advanced.
If he doesn't get it done in 100 days, he's footing the bill, which could be up to $50 million.
The BFR would be totally reusable, meaning it would cut many costs typically associated with space travel. The thought of blasting off on a rocket to space is exciting, as is the potential for adding moments of weightlessness to your trip to London or wherever.
The flap over Price has overshadowed Trump's agenda and prompted scrutiny of other Cabinet members' travel.
In March 2017, the State Government announced a plan to create a $150 million fund made to support renewable energy projects.
And then there's the landing.
Musk also envisions the BFR (whose name is short for Big F***ing Rocket) helping humanity set up an outpost on the moon, and perhaps even ferrying people from place to place here on Earth.
The BFR is an updated version of the Interplanetary Transport System (ITS) architecture that Musk announced at last year's IAC, in Guadalajara, Mexico.
