Elon Musk Says Flights for Colonizing Mars to Begin in 2019

During the Q&A session of the SXSW festival, Musk also said that at the time that he hoped a BFR will land on Mars in 2022, and the first missions will send cargo.

"I can tell you that we are building the first ship, the first Mars interplanetary ship right now", Musk told a crowd at the conference in Austin, Texas.

Musk said he thinks that SpaceX's interplanetary ship will "be able to do short flights, short sort of up and down flights, probably sometime in the first half of next year".

The producer of the short video clip Nolan stated that the video was not a promotional television material about Falcon Heavy but was made to capture the incredible spirit of the launch of Falcon Heavy.

However, he joked that the timelines for his projects tended to be a little ambitious, prompting laughter from the audience.

Post to the successful sending of the electric auto into deep space, the CEO of SpaceX is now aiming at the fulfillment of his biggest dream of colonizing Mars and sending the citizens of Earth to the red planet.

Billionaire entrepreneur and founder of SpaceX Elon Musk speaks below a computer-generated illustration of his BFR rocket at the 68th International Astronautical Congress 2017 in Adelaide, Australia, on September 29, 2017. According to Musk, starting in the first half of 2019, his private space company may start some test flights that involve going up and down. Musk made an announcement that his spacecraft to Mars would be ready by the next years.

Bases on the moon and Mars could help preserve human civilization and hasten its regeneration on Earth in the event of a third world war, billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk, said Sunday.

He added, "And I think that's why it's important to get a self-sustaining base, ideally on Mars, because Mars is far enough away from earth that. a Mars base might survive [a war]".

In the short term for example, a Mars colony would require glass domes for growing crops, power stations and other essential infrastructure.
