Elon Musk, a representative from SpaceX, is giving a speech on Tuesday about his idea to make our journey to Mars possible. He thinks about a concept of establishing a city up there. The SpaceX CEO is expected to give more details about the system he has created, called “Mars Colonial Transporter” at the International Astronautical Congress from Mexico. He has a plan of building a space rocket able to set approximately 100 individuals on our journey to Mars.
Depreciators may turn to the terrible event from a few weeks back when the explosion of the Falcon 9 rocket took place. It seems Elon Musk’s words don’t match with the reality. The CEO of SpaceX has already planned a speech for the conference soon to take place in Guadalajara. He tries to reach the point where humans will be considered a “multi-planetary species.”
Earlier this year, at Kennedy Space Center, Musk claimed that his wish to transform humans into multi-planetary individuals might seem a little bit weird. Included in the conference program is a discussion about possible systems of colonization which seem to be supported by the governments and the private sector as a project for the future. Although all these ideas appear to be strange for others, the CEO of SpaceX claims that he set the foundation of the company having them as grounds ideas.
This company was founded in order to fly NASA cargo to the ISS and to launch satellites used for commercial purposes. Musk’s prosaic ambition related to Mars handled to raise hundreds of fans interested in space journeys. He started promoting his idea through “Occupy Mars” T-shirts, mugs and caps.
Hannah Kerner, who is one of the managers of the Space Frontier Foundation, claimed Elon Musk has been saying from the beginning that the intentions of SpaceX are to make the public familiar with the idea of Martian colonization. People, though, don’t seem to treat Musk’s view as a trustworthy one because his ideas still appear as pure imagination.
It has been said that SpaceX is planning to introduce a pilotless spaceship which will be ready to set for our journey to Mars in two years. A massive space rocket with Raptor propulsion system which is currently in evolution will be ready until 2022 for humans’ journey to the Red Planet. The landing will be scheduled for 2015.
If scientists don’t manage to find life on Mars, then we will be the ones who will populate it. Would you dare to at least dream to be listed among those 100 people on the spaceship?
