Musk has thrown around the name “MCT ” for a while but hasn’t elaborated on what it means.
Musk has said the new rocket will be “several times” as powerful as the 1 Merlin series, and won’t use Merlin’s RP-1 fuel. Beyond adding that it will have “a very big core size”, he declined to elaborate, promising more details in “between one and three years”.
Yesterday the mystery was solved in a tweet by Musk
Got to love the name. Exciting!
