Elon Musk will provide an update about SpaceX's new Starship and Super Heavy rocket, and you can watch him announce the news live online.
Tune in at 8 p.m. EDT (0000 GMT) to hear Musk discuss the new design of the rocket-spacecraft combo, which is being built to launch human missions to the moon, Mars and other destinations in the solar system. You can watch the webcast live here on Space.com or directly via SpaceX's website. The presentation is expected to last about one hour.
Musk will be speaking in front of the newly assembled Starship Mk1 prototype at the company's launch facility near Boca Chica, a small town in Cameron County, Texas. That prototype is expected to make its first test flight in October, when it will soar to an altitude of 12 miles (20 kilometers). Space.com's Editor-in-Chief Tariq Malik is on the scene at SpaceX's South Texas facility, and you can catch some up-close views of the spacecraft as he gives some background on the Starship project in the video above.
