Elon Musk’s vision of Mars’ colonization: 2016 and 2017
Last year’s presentation detailed Musk’s Mars ambitions in more detail than ever previously revealed, including the physical design of the rocket and spacecraft that would ferry cargo and crew to the planet.
It also showed a bit of information about how he hoped to pay for the trip, though a lot of that was still left an open question by the end of the plan. Mostly, Musk hoped to decrease costs exponentially through advances like the reusable rocketry that it such a massive part of SpaceX’s business model, TechCrunch reported.
Musk teased not only “major improvements” to be revealed at this year’s IAC, along with some new, “unexpected applications” of the interplanetary launch system. These are the ones to watch: The big focus last year was still on how SpaceX intended to pay for the incredibly ambitious plan, and additional applications of the tech, including for potentially lucrative commercial purposes, could help.
