Description: The Raptor is a space rocket engine developed by SpaceX to support the United States Air Force (USAF) Evolved Expandable Launch Vehicle (EELV) program and future flights to Mars powering new space launch systems. The USAF awarded a $33.6 million contract for Raptor engine development in January 2016. The Raptor rocket engine burns a mixture of liquid methane and liquid oxygen to provide a maximum thrust at liftoff of 448,000 pounds far exceeding Merlin 1D engine performance. The new engine development is expected to run in the 2010s and possible early 2020s when should deliver a functional engine.
