Elon Musk’s SpaceX works with Starship to assemble the tallest rocket of all time

So far, the Saturn V rocket developed by Wernher von Braun (1912-1977) for the US space agency NASA was the largest and most powerful space travel launch system: 111 meters high – almost 20 meters higher than the Statue of Liberty in New York. Fully fueled and loaded, the Saturn V, which was developed for Apollo lunar missions, weighed 3,000 tons.

As of this week, Saturn V no longer tops the record list. The US space company SpaceX has assembled the tallest rocket of all time. For the first time, the Starship was mounted on the super heavy booster. With a height of 120 meters, Starship towers over the Saturn V by nine meters.
