Elon Musk Presents His Plan to Colonize Mars


SpaceX founder Elon Musk spoke at the 67th International Astronautical Congress, where he presented the Interplanetary Transport System, or ITS - his plan on how to send humans to Mars. Musk showed CAD models of the ITS spaceship-rocket hybrid and explained that the ITS is supposed to be able to carry up to 100 people to Mars per flight, with each flight expected to take 80 days. The first flights are slated to take place by the mid-2020s. The SpaceX founder estimates that in 40-100 years it would be possible to establish an independent colony on the Red Planet. Musk assessed that if 1 million people signed up for the flights, the tickets to Mars could be sold for around $200,000.
