Elon Musk And Space X Unveil Future Plans For Mars And More”

A BFR rocket would potentially launch from NY, for example, detach from the rocket booster and head towards a landing pad in Shanghai. When stacked on top of each other, they will be about 500 feet tall.

Musk said: "I don't call it a breakthrough, but a realisation".

That rocket's booster alone was to be about 39 feet in diameter, and the spaceship was envisioned to be about 55 feet in diameter.

SpaceX will build smaller rocket ships than it had planned in order make going to Mars cheaper, Musk said at the International Astronautical Congress in Adelaide.

Musk said that he plans to replace all of SpaceX's other space vehicles - the Falcon 9 and Falcon 9 Heavy rockets and the Dragon capsule - with this new system.

These trips would involve taking a boat to a launchpad in the water and boarding a ship that's carried out of the atmosphere by a BFR, before returning to a landing pad near the destination city. The spacecraft, that will be traveling to Mars, as per the Elon Musk, will launch in 2022 for the first time before colonizing the planet from 2024.

Both the new rocket and spaceship are now theoretical, but the billionaire technologist hopes to begin construction within nine months.

The serial entrepreneur said the updated plans will allow the spacecraft to transport people to Mars, assist in the construction of a base on the moon - and provide commercial travel to anywhere on Earth in under an hour.

Musk estimated past year that the development cost for the Mars system would be about $10 billion. There's also no information about how this new form of transportation would be regulated.

In his speech, Musk said that he intends to land at least two ships on Mars by 2022 and slowly build a base on the red planet, making it a "nice place to be". "It's 2017", Musk said. All for the price of a full-fare economy aeroplane ticket.

Musk proposed an Interplanetary Transport System space vehicle that could theoretically take humans to the Red Planet in the future at the same forum a year ago.

And he wants to make it a reality within seven years.
