As of not long ago has been famously known as the Mars Colonial Transporter, can’t be called that, Musk said. “Turns out MCT can go well beyond Mars, so will need a new name…” he tweeted on Friday evening.

Be that as it may, in a progression of tweets on Saturday (Sept. 17), Musk reported that he had settled on “Interplanetary Transport System,” or ITS. In one of those tweets, Musk reminded his devotees that SpaceX will disclose points of interest of the colonial transporter one week from now at the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) in Guadalajara, Mexico.

At present, almost no is thought about the ITS. Gossipy tidbits and different little parts of data have been made open since the rocket was initially reported. Methane is said to be used to power the craft; it will utilize another Raptor motor to venture to every part of the separation; and could be up to 60 meters high.
As such, Musk has just prodded points of interest of arranged missions to Mars: both kept an eye on and unmanned. The initially unmanned test from SpaceX will be sent to the planet “when 2018,” it was said in June. Musk included that tests would be propelled by SpaceX at regular intervals, before people are arrived on the planet in 2025.
Introductory missions will transport the things expected to construct life and provinces. “It’s a consistent load course. You can depend on it. It will happen like clockwork. Like a train leaving the station,” Musk said at the time.
We’ll all simply need to keep a watch out what Musk says amid his IAC talk, which is booked to happen Sept. 27.
