Elon Musk`s Plan to Get Humans to Mars

On September 27, Elon Musk revealed what many are calling the most ambitious space plan. He announced a bold new plan to establish a permanent human habitation on Mars.

The main goal for SpaceX and humanity should be to get to Mars, and beyond. “It’s really a decision we need to make as a civilisation,” Musk said.

The Spacex interplanetary spaceship will be about the height of the 32 story Keystone building in Boston. It would take up to 100 “colonists” to the red planet in order to build a settlement. Though Musk hopes to ultimately take 200 or more per flight to make the cost cheaper per person.

“What kind of future do we want? Do we want a future where we are forever confined to one planet, until some eventual extinction event, however far into the future that might occur. Or do we want to become a multi-planet species, and then ultimately be out there among the stars?”, Musk asked.

The first human mission could launch as early as 2024.

And if you want to live on Mars, remember you have to wear a spacesuit to take a stroll outside!

    Elon Musk a great business man and scientist, one of my role models. He built the first inexpensive airplane that can go into space (for which he won the X-price) and a rocket that comes back to Earth after having lifted cargo into space (Dragon). Now he builds boosters, tankers and shuttles that bring mankind to Mars. What an INSPIRATION!
