The company stated this week that it would take more than ten Starship launches before one can be fueled up enough to travel all the way to Moon. Musk was not pleased with the statement, but he did agree with it slightly on Wednesday.AdvertisementAdvertisementMusk tweeted that if lobbying and lawyers could get you to orbit, Bezos [right now] would be on Pluto.Elon Musk says it could take eight Starship Launches for a single Moon Trip to be fueled by Starship
