Gwynne Shotwell, the SpaceX president, and COO, spoke at the International Astronautical Congress, and revealed the company's most recent mission timeline for its Starship spacecraft. Shotwell stated that the company will attempt to get its Starship into orbit during the course of a year. The company also has plans to land the Starship on the Moon before the year 2022, and if that works, SpaceX will look to transport cargo to for humans on the moon in 2024.
The SpaceX COO revealed the mission timeline that the company will attempt to meet. However, Shotwell also states that this is the organization's ideal timeline and it may not come to fruition.
SpaceX's Starship was designed to replace the previously existing Falcon and Falcon Heavy space crafts. The Starship is able to carry more cargo, which makes it more of an asset for the company.
