Have you ever wondered how big SpaceX Starship is, which is designed to be the most powerful launch vehicle ever built?

Well, some research will tell you that it is 118m tall and has a mass of 5,000 tons.

But do you think it’s also among the tallest super heavyweight pitchers currently in use?

For example, the Dragon 2 capsule is only 8.1m tall while Falcon 1 is 21m tall.

However, Starship is not in the lead when it comes to the highest heavy thrower.

Based on a video by Fossbytes, Sea Dragon is 150m tall.

The Starship launcher includes the Super Heavy first stage booster and the Starship second stage.

When it enters orbit, the second stage becomes a self-contained spacecraft for crew or cargo. Both stages are powered by Raptor engines.
