Elon Musk Reveals his plan to colonize Mars

Noted inventor and founder CEO of SpaceX, Elon Musk, unveiled his plans for manned mission to Mars in six years.
During his keynote speech at the International Astronautical Congress in Guadalajara, Mexico, on Sept. 27, Musk said that the human race faces two paths to go forward. “One is that we stay on Earth forever and then there will be an inevitable extinction event. The alternative is to become a spacefaring civilization, and a multi-planetary species.”
Although the funding details of the mission are still under wraps, Musk outlined the process that might make this vision a possibility. The mission will feature a multi-stage launch and a reusable booster, much like SpaceX’s tried-and-tested Falcon 9 space launch vehicle. The “interplanetary module,” which will carry the astronauts, will be place atop the booster.
The setup, which can carry up to 100 passengers, would be as long as two Boeing 747 aircraft, nearly 142 m (466 ft). According to Musk, the ship will be named Heart of Gold, taking inspiration from the iconic spacecraft from the popular science fiction novel series, “The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,” by Douglas Adams and Eoin Colfer.
Musk estimates that the current cost of the mission might amount to $10 billion per person, although there would be price decreases over time with technological improvements.
Ok so we'll put our travel plans on hold for a while. Just imagine the cost of real estate up there.


  1. Hey there Elon Musk , you need to put your money and energy here where maybe you can help find a way to slow down Climate change .
    By the way your name sounds like a cheap cologne ... Jovan Musk cologne Hahahaha!!!
    love . Going to your Trump post . Love PIC

  2. Yes indeed PIC. That's what he should do, then we won't have to leave earth to live on Mars. He has way too much money. He should just buy a country where people are starving and dying of horrible diseases and rebuild it and save lives. I could name a few countries. He has enough blunt to build a frigging umbrella over the earth to shield us from global warming. But boys will be boys.
    Thanks Love PIC
