SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has given us the first glimpse at his Starship Raptor engine firing up in all its kaleidoscopic glory.

The engine — which will power Musk’s plans to reach Mars by 2022, orbit the earth by rocket power and send billionaire Yusaku Maezawa to the moon along with a group of artists in 2023 — was shown in full force at the SpaceX facility in Texas.

Musk captured the Starship at full thrust with its radically redesigned engine throwing red, purple and bright white flames. Combined with flecks of green “stardust” fuel, the jet shows an intensely powerful stream of rocket fuel billowing down the SpaceX facility.

Take a look for yourself below.
