Raptor four times the power of Merlin

Not just for the upper stage either. Another game changer. It makes other companies (and countries) look like they're standing still. Via Zimmerman.

The Raptor is a methane/Lox engine suitable for some future mars launch vehicle using ISRU fuel. But of course, it's going to be used in other vehicles long before that.

Update: More. Rand is also on it.
