Elon Musk announced the construction of the Deimos ocean-going cosmodrome

Elin Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, announced this week that his company is building a floating spaceport off the coast of Texas in the United States. The platform can serve as a launch and landing base for SpaceX rockets in reusable rocket and space missions. This platform, in particular, will be used by Falcon 9 rockets, which have already launched hundreds of Starlink satellites into orbit.

For these purposes, SpaceX acquired two oil rigs for about $ 3.5 million and named them Deimos and Phobos. These names were chosen for the part of the moons of Mars. Deimos and Phobos are expected to go live next year.

In the future, manned missions in Starship spacecraft will be sent to Mars from such sites.

A few days ago, Elon Musk posted on his Twitter page a photo of the new Starship SN16 spacecraft, which should be launched soon.
