SpaceX Founder Elon Musk Planing To Send Humans To Mars Within Next Six Years

Published on 28 September, 2016 at 5:24 pm By

Founder of Project SpaceX Elon Musk on September 28 outlined another highly ambitious vision of his Mars project in which he said that he plans to send humans to Mars as early as 2022 that is three years sooner than his previous estimate.

While the project, sounds exciting, the question of how such “extravagantly expensive” missions would be funded still remains a mystery.

He also outlined few key details on how he hopes to achieve this feat which included a multi-stage launch and a transport system, including a reusable booster – like that of Falcon 9.

 



He said the booster, and the “interplanetary module” on top of it, would be nearly as long as two Boeing 747 aircraft and can initially carry up to 100 passengers in one go.

He also said that the first “ship” to Mars would be called ‘Heart of Gold’ in tribute to Douglas Adams’ novel ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’.
