Elon Musk and his company SpaceX have been working on a gigantic, 387-foot-long spacecraft that's designed to eventually send humans to Mars.




The spacecraft has been dubbed Big Falcon Rocket (BFR for short), but Musk posted on Twitter on Monday that the rocket now has a new name: Starship.




SpaceX released the final design for the rocket in September, and plans to launch the first human voyage to Mars on the Starship by 2024.



SpaceX has long been touting a rocket in the works that wants to be the first to put people on Mars, and all that hype now comes with a new name.
Elon Musk, the company's CEO, took to Twitter late Monday night to reveal the new name of the 387-foot SpaceX rocket. Up until now, the rocket has been operating under the name Big Falcon Rocket — dubbed BFR, and also referred to by many (including Musk) as the "Big F-----g Rocket."
But now, the rocket is named Starship.
