Want a two-hour tour of SpaceX’s Starbase? Now, you can get one from CEO Elon Musk himself.

Musk gave viewers an extensive video tour after he took Everyday Astronaut’s Tim Dodd through the nooks and crannies of the Boca Chica facility on Tuesday. The tour was divided into three clips that will soon be available on YouTube. A 50-minute first clip of the interview is available on YouTube now.

In the first leg of the tour, Musk showed off the 230-feet tall Starship Super Heavy Rocket, including its grid fin and human landing system. The same man that made the avant-garde Cybertruck design, which will soon be manufactured at Austin’s Giga Texas, said that design is actually less important than cost-effectiveness if humans want to become a “multi-planet species.”

“The fundamental thing we need to fix is the cost per ton to orbit,” Musk said.

Musk noted some issues with the rocket’s current design, including its still-too expensive parts and excessive weight. According to Musk, the avionics, grid fins, and batteries are currently too heavy; the grid fins currently borrow from Musk’s other business and use an electrically-powered Tesla Model 3 motor to drive them.
