SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk plans to launch a prototype of its planned Starship reusable rocket system into orbit in less than six months.




Musk presented an update on the system at the company's launch facility in Cameron County, Texas on Saturday.




SpaceX expects an existing prototype of the system to attempt a 65-foot flight within a month or two.




The company plans to begin work in the next few months on other prototypes that it expects to reach orbit.




"This is going to sound totally nuts, but I think we want to try to reach orbit in less than six months," Musk said.
