SpaceX CEO Elon Musk Has Plans To Colonize Mars

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk Has Plans To Colonize Mars

"If we're building this [ship] to go to the Moon and Mars", Musk challenged the audience at the 2017 International Astronautical Congress in Adelaide, Australia, "then why not go to other places on earth as well?" Shuttling passengers or cargo from New York City to Shanghai or London, for example, would be about a half-hour trip, Musk said.

SpaceX would also use the new rocket system to run missions to the Moon, with US Vice President Mike Pence recently hinting that NASA may return there soon.

Set to "cannibalise" the progress made with previous SpaceX rockets, Musk said the BFR would eventually carry out all the work the others had been designed for. "We'll start construction of the first ship by around the second quarter of next year, within six to nine months", Musk told the audience.

"It's really crazy that we build these sophisticated rockets and then crash them every time we fly", Musk said.

So, how much will it cost to take part in the 140 million mile trip to Mars?

The BFR isn't Musk's only ambitious vision.

"For longer missions, the BFR second stage could be refueled in orbit by a drone "tanker" ship". According to ABC News, the idea is theoretical right now. The company will no longer use a slew of rockets for the project and will focus on just one interplanetary system c BFR. Inside the company, it's nicknamed the "Big F-king Rocket".

Musk, the SpaceX founder, revealed plans for his newest streamlined travel concept Thursday. He said a priority was to get the cost of moving to the red planet reduced by five million percent, to the average cost of a house in the United States. Once mining operations and refining operations are up and running then the base on Mars would be on track to grow into a full-fledged city.
