The future SpaceX deep-space rocket capable of flying missions to Mars will be built at the Port of Los Angeles, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced Monday.

The BFR — which stands for Big Falcon Rocket — will be the largest rocket ever built, capable of carrying 150 tons and powered by 31 Raptor engines.

“This is a vehicle that holds the promise of taking humanity even deeper into the cosmos than ever before,” Garcetti said during his State of the City address at City Hall.
