Just to clarify; final configuration StarShip (S/N 20) will have 6 Raptor Engines, 3 Sea Level and 3 Optimized for Space, SuperHeavy (S/N 3) will have 28 Sea Level Raptor Engines, both currently in production. StarShip alone will be capable point to point travel anywhere on planet Earth in under an hour. Escaping Earth's gravity for the Moon and beyond requires a boost from SuperHeavy, together, they will be the most powerful rocket ever built.
