Elon Musk says the SpaceX Raptor engine must be 10X decrease value. Order of magnitude change is nice motive for a brand new title. He says what actually issues will not be one more “superior” rocket engine. There has by no means been an affordable (lower than $1000/Ton-force) rocket engine.
The SpaceX Raptor engine can have about 250 tons of pressure. This implies the engines are at the moment about $2-2.5 million and can attain $250,000 or much less.

This engine must be 10X decrease value. Order of magnitude change is nice motive for a brand new title.
What actually issues will not be one more “superior” rocket engine, as there are a lot of such units, however there has by no means been an affordable (<$1000/Ton-force) rocket engine. Not even shut
