Elon Musk plans to shift the human population on Mars

Elon Musk plans to shift the human population on Mars

Yes!! You heard it right, the billionaire and founder of SpaceX has some really interesting plans for the future of human population of the world.

All these came from an event at the International Astronautical Congress held in Guadalajara, Mexico two days ago. In this event Elon talked about his plans to transfer the human population to the Red planet Mars. The billionaire has also proposed that the expense of travelling to the mars will be as cheaper as buying an average home in USA i.e., $200,000.

As he predicts that one day the human civilization is going to be extinct. So, keeping that in mind it would be a need of humans to transport themselves to the other planet and Mars seems to be the best choice after all. Elon musk wants to build up cities on planet Mars that could help in the survival of human beings.  Right now his company is just focusing on getting there. According to Space X, their spacecraft shouldn’t take more than 80 days to reach to the Mars or they could cut down the travelling period to 30 days. In order to make these things actually work Space X would be using rocket reusability, spacecraft refueling in orbit and propellant production.
Some big names attended this special event including astronaut Buzz Aldrin and some other great scientists. The event was launched in order to publicize their latest plans from Elon Musk’s private company Space X. Space X was initiated by Musk as Space Exploration Technologies Corp in 2002.
