Musk aims for Mars cargo trips by 2022

Musk aims for Mars cargo trips by 2022”

On stage at a press industry conference, Musk unveiled his plans to fly people to most long distance destinations in 30 minutes and also go anywhere on earth in an hour.

NASA's first human mission to Mars is expected about a decade later.

This will provide, Musk said, the funding necessary to build SpaceX's most powerful rocket, dubbed the Big F***ing Rocket (BFR for short).

"If we are building this thing to go to the moon and Mars, then why not go to other places on Earth as well?" "We looked at that and the results are quite interesting".

The concept hypersonic craft promised to take passengers from the region to places like NY for a little over seven hours, instead of more than 14 hours, and London for more than four hours, instead of seven hours and 30 minutes. A New York-to-Shanghai trip could be done in 39 minutes, for example.

"All the resources that are being used for Falcon 9, Heavy, and Dragon can be applied to this system", Musk said, referring to three existing SpaceX rocket-powered space vehicles.

SpaceX space company founder, Elon Musk has recently launched a snapshot, or some sort of simulation on how interplanetary trips can be done with SpaceX Technology. So who knows where the future may take us? He said the company was aiming to start construction on the first spaceship in the next six to nine months. That mission would be followed by the first manned mission in 2024.
