I actually didn’t like the aesthetics of that design,” Musk said. “I love the Tintin rocket design, so I kind of wanted to bias it toward that. Previously the ship had been planned to have four large Raptor engines and two smaller sea-level engines for landing purposes. Perhaps cognizant of posterity and the dignity of mankind’s expansion into space, Musk suggested this might not be permanent. This was kind of a code name and it kind of stuck.”Again, if it officially just stood for “Big Falcon Rocket,” this probably wouldn’t be an issue.
