SpaceX to use N1 rocket to lift starship SN16 to orbit

Starbase, TX — Today, SpaceX announced that they will be using the N1 rocket to help lift starship SN16 into orbit. This last minute change of plans calls for a litany of old soviet parts to be gathered up and assembled to make a fully functioning N1, just with raptor engines this time. As always, recently promoted to head raptor technician Harcus Mouse has the story for us.

When Elon brought this up in one of our meetings, we thought he was insane, which is normal for Elon. We decided to pursue it because SN15 had just landed successfully, so there was no need for new starship prototypes that do a simple hop. We knew that BN3 would not be ready in time, so it was either we waited (which is unacceptable in starship development), launched aboard falcon heavy (which would take too long) or use N1, which was our quickest and cheapest option.

Legal Stuff: it's satire, none of this is true
