no.

Elon Musk said they plan to have Starship "2" as 18m in diameter.

Starship 2 is not Starship mk2.

In fact, they are already building Starship mk3.

Everything you have seen of Starship is Starship ONE mark 1, mark 2, mark 3, etc.

After Starship is functional and already going to the Moon and Mars, then SpaceX will start developing Starship TWO (mark 1, mark 2, etc).

China sent a new communication technology experiment satellite into planned orbit from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwest China's Sichuan Province late Thursday. The satellite, launched by a Long March-3B carrier rocket at 23:21 (Beijing Time), will be mainly used for multi-band and high-speed communication technology experiments. The satellite and the carrier rocket were respectively developed by the China Academy of Space Technology and the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology under the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation. Thursday's launch was the 315th mission of the Long March rocket series. (Photo: China news service/Guo Wenbin)

Friday's All-Woman Spacewalk: The Basics...full story



HI-RES



HI-RES

NASA astronaut Christina Koch worked while tethered near the Port 6 truss segment of the International Space Station to replace older hydrogen-nickel batteries with newer, more powerful lithium-ion batteries, during the October 11, 2019, spacewalk. Fellow NASA astronaut Andrew Morgan (out of frame) assisted Koch during the six-hour and 45-minute spacewalk.

Friday’s all-woman spacewalk is generating public interest we normally don’t get for a spacewalk. Here are the basics on the spacewalk itself, how to watch and how to participate in the conversation.

Why is this spacewalk significant?



HI-RES

Although it's the 221st spacewalk performed in support of space station assembly, it's the first to be conducted entirely by women, NASA astronauts Jessica Meir (at left above) and Christina Koch (at right above). It’s the first spacewalk for Meir; she’ll become the 15th woman overall and 14th U.S. woman to spacewalk.

What's the importance of an all-woman spacewalk?

The first all-woman spacewalk is a milestone worth noting and celebrating as the agency looks forward to putting the first woman and next man on the Moon by 2024 with NASA’s Artemis lunar exploration program. Our achievements provide inspiration to students around the world, proving that hard work can lead you to great heights, and all students should be able to see themselves in those achievements.

When asked in an interview about the importance of conducting her mission and this spacewalk, Koch said, “In the end, I do think it’s important, and I think it’s important because of the historical nature of what we’re doing. In the past women haven’t always been at the table. It’s wonderful to be contributing to the space program at a time when all contributions are being accepted, when everyone has a role. That can lead in turn to increased chance for success. There are a lot of people who derive motivation from inspiring stories of people who look like them, and I think it’s an important story to tell.”

PLUS, Elon Musk Starship presentation. He talks about the different versions/iterations (mk 1, mk 2, etc) but doesn´t mention next GEN.

All animations shown of the Starship + Superheavy, READY and going to Mars, show the 9 meters diameter version.

ITS was supposed to be 12 meters. They scaled down. Showed it. They wouldn´t be planning an 18 meters version, TWICE the diameter of the Starhopper and the current Starship Mk1 and Mk2, and at the same time be testing a 9 meters version which is full size in other aspects, as planned and shown.
