"Rename BFR to Starship," Musk wrote on Monday evening in the Twitter short messaging service. "Starship" should one day bring people to the moon and maybe even to Mars. The former unofficial name "BFR" was probably originally "Big Fucking Rocket" before the board members started calling it "Big Rock Rocket".

In September, Musk announced that Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa will be the first tourist to circle the moon with SpaceX. The growing rocket, 118 meters high, with which Maezawa should begin at the earliest in 2023 to the moon, consists of two stages.

The first stage concerns the engines and fuel systems that, according to Musk, will be called "super heavy". "Starship" is the second stage of a real spacecraft for passengers.

Musk estimates the cost of the missile system at five billion dollars (4.4 billion euros). It should be able to bring about 100 people and, according to boss Tesla one day allow the colonization of the moon and Mars.
