Elon Musk said that Starship can make an unpiloted flight to Mars after 5 years.

The founder of the American company SpaceX, Elon Musk, revealed the timing of the launch of the Starship rocket to Mars. This is reported by the Financial Times.

According to him, the spacecraft can carry out an unpiloted flight to Mars in 3-5 years. “I think if it is successful, we will be able to send a crewed mission to Mars before the end of the decade,” he said.

According to Musk, the “windows” for flights to Mars open every two years. He added that the necessary location of the planets for the flight from Earth orbit to Mars orbit is set every 26 months.

“We will hopefully have our first [Starship] launch attempt this summer, within the next two or three months,” he said.
