  Musk's Mars engine passed a key milestone
 
  SpaceX says its Raptor motor, that will power a spaceship designed to carry 100 people to the Red Planet, passed a key milestone.

The Raptor engine is being built for the Starship rocket, which is designed to be a fully reusable launch system. SpaceX plans to use Starship to transport up to 100 people to Mars. The design of Starship requires an engine create "at least 170 metric tons of force," Musk said in another tweet. The engine surpassed that in Thursday's test and, when SpaceX switches from "warm propellant" to cryogenic propellant (meaning cooled to extremely low temperature), Musk estimates the Raptor engine will get 10 percent to 20 percent more power.
