On Tuesday, September 27th, Elon Musk made a speech detailing a plan that is out of this world!
Musk, CEO and founder of SpaceX, has ideas to institute a city on mars within the next 10 years. These plans include the “Mars Colonial Transporter”, a rocket that could potentially transport up to 100 people to Mars in one trip.
SpaceX was founded in 2002 with this goal in mind. While many think easy travel to Mars within 10 years is too optimistic, there is still a general buzz and excitement around the idea. The company’s merchandise, mugs and shirts with the words “Occupy Mars” printed on them, are very popular sellers.
When asked for more details on the plan earlier this year, Musk responded with “I think the plan is going to sound pretty crazy, so it should be at least entertaining”.
So what do you think, would you move to Mars? Let us know!
