Elon Musk is Heading for Mars
On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first human to step on the moon. It was a huge achievement for the United States and represented the potential of the human race. In the following 48 years we haven’t been back to the moon or anywhere else in the solar system. However, one man is looking to change that.
So, where are we headed next? Mars, of course!
Space Exploration Technologies Corp is an American aerospace manufacturer. It is better known as SpaceX. The goal of the company is to reduce the cost of space travel and colonize Mars one day.
Elon Musk is planning on building a Big F*cking Rocket (BFR: Interplanetary Transport System), to get to Mars. We’re not kidding. It really is called a Big F*cking Rocket! Musk plans on focusing most of SpaceX’s resources on the Interplanetary Transport System, called BFR.
All our resources will turn toward building BFR,” Musk said. “And we believe we can do this with the revenue we receive from launching satellites and servicing the space station.
Although, the company has not launched any astronauts into space previously, Musk plans to have the first travelers on board the BFR, to Mars, by 2024.
