SpaceX is developing a transportation system consisting of a fully reusable Super Heavy launch vehicle and Starship. The system will allow delivering satellites, crews, and cargo both to near-Earth orbits and to the Moon and Mars. The Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral in Florida and the spaceport in the village of Boca Chica in Texas were chosen as the launch and landing site for the system.
