SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has finished his keynote Speech "Making Humans a Multiplanetary Species" over in Mexico, and as the title suggests, he outlines that he wants to transport people to the planet and has a vision of colonizing the area.



He also mentioned that the transport system would be used as a "railroad to the solar system", via a 77 meter tall rocket which can fit 100 people & cargo per trip (with plans to expand to 200 or more per flight to reduce costs), and potentially cost $200,000 for the trip which would last 30 days. Slight caveat though, people who would be going to the planet initially should be "prepared to die" if they wish to be a candidate.

Is Elon bonkers or a future-thinking legend of our time?
Who knows, but he's amassing his wealth to direct into this project.

Would you want to go?

Going to Mars is absolutely imperative to the survival of the human race. I just think Musk is a bit of a hyper-optimist. We are certainly on the cusp of it all though. I think you have to commercialise it first. Get people working in space and all this will come together a lot quicker and more viably than any one multi-billionaire's idea. I'd go though - if they had Yo! Sushi.
