SpaceX Replaces Cargo Starship With Extended Fairing Variant of Falcon Heavy

Hawthorne – TX, A shocking announcement was made by SpaceX CEO Elon Musk that the Cargo variant of Starship was to be replaced by an expanded fairing version of the Falcon Heavy. When contacted by Apogee on the development, Musk said:

"We had multiple design considerations, for example making the fairing  W I D E, but this may affect aerodynamics. That is why I said 'screw it' to the SpaceX team and said 'put that cargo Starship nose thing on top of the Falcon Heavy. We have decided to scrap Cargo Starship because it seemed too Space Shuttle-esque and people were ridiculing us because of it. Plus, it looked weird."

Musk also noted that this variant of Falcon Heavy would specifically be used for launching Starlink satellites.
