Has SpaceX started building the Star Ship?
Inside, his engineers are building a colossal interplanetary spacecraft called the Star Ship rocket. On September 28, SpaceX named its first private passenger to be launched in the BFR.
How fast are space rockets?
If a rocket is launched from the surface of the Earth, it needs to reach a speed of at least 7.9 kilometers per second (4.9 miles per second) in order to reach space. This speed of 7.9 kilometers per second is known as the orbital velocity, it corresponds to more than 20 times the speed of sound.

In Guadalajara in 2016, for example, he said the aim was to send the first cargo flight to Mars in 2022.

How Does it Relate to engineering?
This relates to engineering by building the rocket and planning it for years. The technology inside the rocket involves electrical and mechanical engineering. Architectural engineering is also used to create the perfect size and shape of the rocket ship.
