The Real Reason SpaceX Developed The Raptor Engine!

SpaceX has a long history of making unlikely advances in rocket technology.

Even the company's name is an acronym, representing Space Exploration Technologies.

While the company’s most famous products are Falcon 9 rockets,

which continue to support satellite launches, it also makes engines like the Raptor.

These engines are designed specifically for the company’s next-generation rockets, like the BFR (Big Falcon Rocket).

The name Raptor comes from a mythical creature that can fly at incredible speeds, as well as having the ability to change its direction midair.
