Impossible as it sounds if human beings can live in space as on Earth. However, the impossibility ignored by Elon Musk, founder of Space Exploration Technologies Corporation (SpaceX), a company manufacturing aerospace and transportation space.
Musk said that within eleven years mankind can `Migrated` to the planet Mars. He also revealed that his SpaceX will be more expose the possibilities of human transport related to the red planet.
Musk who is also the founder of Tesla Motors is revealing his plan to bring Mars Colonial Transporter, an artificial SpaceX spacecraft that will carry humans to set foot on Mars.
Explained, Mars Colonial Transporter will have a size of 100 times greater than the Suburban vehicle Utility Vehicle (SUV). The spacecraft will carry a hundred people at the same time to go to Mars.
SpaceX engine development division chief, Tom Mueller, said that Mars Colonial Transporter will use nine machine named `Raptor` on a single rocket on the plane. The machine allows Mars Colonial Transporter can carry loads weighing 100 tons to Mars.
Moreover, SpaceX will use a large rocket with a diameter of 10 meters or three times larger than the size of the rocket Falcon 9. Of course, with a lot of heavy equipment that is capable of making Mars Colonial Transporter can work requires a lot of fund. To date, SpaceX has revealed problems related to limited funding and a shortage of technological equipment.
“What we need for the moment is to get the cheapest way to get to go to Mars. Therefore, SpaceX will try to realize it by Mars Colonial Transportation,” said Musk.
SpaceX itself seems to have been contracted by NASA to develop a space capsule to carry cargo and astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS). SpaceX is considered successful in launching supplies to the ISS. NASA also plans to test the first human flight by SpaceX capsule in two or three years into the future.
Not only that, NASA is also working with SpaceX’s unmanned Mars exploration mission called Red Dragon. The mission allows scientists to examine samples taken from Mars to Earth at the upcoming 2022.
