PayPal it was the company of Elon musk which was committed to the development of electronic commerce, allowing the transfer of money between users who have email. Tesla It is the largest Silicon Valley factory, it favors the extreme customization of (mostly electric) vehicles. In 2002, Musk also founded Spacex, which is the first private space company that has put a rocket into orbit. The next step is to get to Mars.
This has been made public in recent statements that you can see in the video that heads this post. His secret is the Mars Colonial Transporter (MCT).
The company is under contract by NASA to send astronauts to the ISS since 2017. "And then we will have a new generation rocket and a spaceship beyond the Falcon-Dragon series. I am waiting to describe its architectures later this year at the International Astronautics Congress."
"And as for the first flights to Mars, we hope to do so around 2025." This last comment suggests that Musk It will reveal details about the MCT in a global scenario at the IAC, where the main actors, including NASA and ESA, will be present. NASA does want to send humans to Mars in the 2030s; If Musk did it on an earlier mission (as of 2025), it would be a significant push for the company.Advertising
Maybe soon we will step on Mars. And much earlier, to comfort ourselves, we may reach places on planet Earth at extremely fast speeds, such as future flights that are planned to cover, for example, London-New York in just 11 minutes.
