    Key accelerants for making the future arrive earlier are a spaceship that costs $5M and a launch cost of $50/Kg

    Both are possible with Starship

    But he hasn't got a rotating detonation engine.

    At least he hopes not. Rotating detonation is a pretty spectacular failure mode for most rocketship designs.

    A bold mission by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) to Mars’ two moons, including a lander component for one of them, is all set to enter the development phase after the plan was submitted to the Japanese government’s science ministry this week.

    Dubbed the “Martian Moons Exploration” (MMX) mission, the goal is to launch the probe in 2024, using the new H-3 rocket being developed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, which is expected to launch for the first time sometime later in 2020. The probe will survey and observe both Phobos and Deimos, the two moons that orbit the Red Planet, which are both smaller and more irregularly shaped than Earth’s Moon.

    About time, carbonaceous asteroids are supposed to have plenty of ice and carbon which can be made into methane and oxygen, fuel for raptor rocket engine.

    The Martian moon's are believed to be carbonaceous asteroids so if either have significant amounts of ice still than they will make great bases for the exploration of Mars.

    Plus chunks of the moon's could be used for 'Aldrin cycler's' and so help protect future Martian colonists from radiation.
