SpaceX’s Starship has officially become the world’s tallest rocket  — and Elon Musk is over the moon.

Today (Aug. 6), for the first time, SpaceX stacked its Starship spacecraft on top of its Super Heavy rocket. At around 390 feet (119 meters) tall, the stacked spacecraft is the tallest in the world. (If you take the launch stand into account, it’s even taller, at about 475 feet, or 145 m, high).
