Elon Mask: SpaceX Can Colonize Mars And Build A Base On The Moon




Elon Mask, chief executive and founder of Tesla for luxury electric cars and SpaceX, unveiled plans to build a new spacecraft, now code-named BFR. This spacecraft allows SpaceX to colonize Mars, build a base on the moon and allow commercial travel to any A place on Earth in less than an hour, and hopes to launch the vehicle for the first time in 2022 and to fly to Mars by 2024.

Elon Mask had previously revealed a bold plan to colonize Mars, which appears to be an editorial summary of his plan presented in September, where Mask explained his argument for the reuse of missiles as a way to reduce the cost of space flights, where he hopes to fly Million people to the Red Planet as a reserve planet of the earth at a cost of between 100 and 200 thousand dollars per person.

“The key is to use all the other SpaceX products as a source of spare parts for the new vehicle,” Musk said at the World Astronautical Congress in Adelaide on Friday. He said BFR would be used to complete all tasks instead. From the operation of a number of small spacecraft to connect satellites to orbit and to provide the International Space Station.

SpaceX has rapidly worked on reusable spacecraft designs and completed a successful 16 consecutive landing of its Falcon 9, and this is the key to allowing the ambitious design to be economical. “The cost of fuel is low and if it can make the vehicle Fully re-usable, the cost of flights will be significantly reduced, adding that the company has already started building this system and that the process of building the first vehicle will start next year.

By 2012, the company plans to fly four vehicles to Mars and plans to build a plant on Mars that would be able to secure fuel for flights back from Mars. About 100 people can fit into 40 rooms, and the vehicle can be used to travel between the different parts of the earth so that most long distance flights can be completed within 30 minutes.
