Investments in the project are approaching $3 billion

SpaceX has made more than 1,000 changes to the Starship rocket since its first launch in April, which was not entirely successful.

This was stated by SpaceX founder Elon Musk, who added that these changes should allow the rocket to successfully enter orbit this time.

Musk said the changes include delaying the separation of the Starship from the Super Heavy booster mid-flight. This means that the Starship engines will start to warm up while the Superheavy continues to run.

Elon Musk also suggested that this year investments in the Starship project will approach three billion dollars.

In an interview with Bloomberg, he said that he estimates the probability of a successful launch of Starship into orbit at 60% .

In May, it became known that engineers had already created an improved version of the Raptor V3 engine for the Starship spacecraft and the Super Heavy launch vehicle.

On April 20, the first launch of the giant Starship rocket took place, but it  had to be blown up 4 minutes after launch .
