Elon Musk Just SHOCKED NASA With This NEWLY UPGRADED Rocket Engine!
On April 26, 2022, Elon Musk shared this image of a batch of SpaceX Raptor 2 engines awaiting integration into a Starship rocket at the firm’s Starbase facility near Boca Chica, Texas. Twitter users noticed a striking similarity to the Doctor Who villains, the Daleks.
No, they don’t have plungers and yell “Exterminate!” They will, however, fly in space, Musk stated in an interview.
So, what’s packed in this upgraded Raptor 2 rocket engine? Watch till the end of the video to know more!
Hello everyone! Welcome back to Elon Musk Evolution, where we bring you the most recent news about Elon Musk and his multibillion-dollar companies.
In today’s video, we’ll talk about Elon Musk giving us an update on the newly upgraded Raptor 2 engine of SpaceX Starship Rocket.

And, let’s begin!
Elon Musk appears to be quite pleased with his company SpaceX’s latest rocket engines.
Musk unveiled a batch of the new Raptor 2 engines this week at SpaceX’s Starbase facility in Texas, where they’ll be used on the company’s Starship megarocket’s first orbital flight later this year.
“Raptor 2 rocket engines at Starbase, each manufacturing over 500,000 pounds (230 tons) of force,” Musk tweeted on Tuesday (April 26). Musk’s image apparently shows a dozen new rocket engines, but his Twitter followers could see something else: evil Daleks from Doctor Who.
“It was only a matter of time before he started building Daleks,” tweeted Twitter user Richard Nellis after Musk’s photo post caused the term “Daleks” to trend.
“Turns out Elon has produced Daleks. Elon IS Davros,” wrote Simon, another Twitter user, pertaining to the creator of the Dalek warriors, who live inside machines that resemble the nozzle of a rocket engine.
To be clear, Elon Musk did not create a race of evil warriors who scream “Exterminate!” as they conquer the world. The Raptor 2 engine will power SpaceX’s Starship rockets and massive Super Heavy boosters.
Every Super Heavy booster will be propelled by 33 Raptor 2 engines, while the Starship vehicle will be propelled by nine Raptor 2 engines. The Raptor 2, like SpaceX’s veteran Merlin engines on Falcon 9 rockets, is intended to be reusable, just like the Starship and Super Heavy rockets.
The Raptor 2 is powered by liquid methane and liquid oxygen, both of which are new to SpaceX. The Merlin engines in its Falcon 9 rockets run on liquid oxygen and rocket-grade kerosene.
Raptor 2 is the result of several years of development for SpaceX’s Raptor engines. It has a more modern look than SpaceX’s first Raptor, with less complex and difficult tubing and plumbing lines.
“The V1 looks like a Christmas tree spaghetti pile — a lot of ‘fibbly’ bits; the V2 is greatly simplified while also increasing thrust,” Musk said in a Starship update on Feb. 10.
It’s possible that SpaceX’s efforts to streamline the Raptor 2 gave it a more Dalek-like resemblance this week for Doctor Who fans. Nonetheless, some Who fans were shocked Musk hadn’t chosen a different Who villain to imitate.
To be fair, the powerful Raptor 2 engines and the science-fiction Daleks are not the same things. The Raptors 2 engines will propel the Starship heavy spacecraft into orbit. The project’s goal is to send a person to the Moon and Mars, progressively colonizing the Solar System. The Daleks, for their part, try to harm all that that is not a Dalek.
