So, to summarize: Musk wants his private spaceflight to send 80,000 to March of each year. They will not do it themselves, no doubt, but the company would carry the load.
How do they do that?
Well, Talking Points Memo writing
, one of the big pushes SpaceX’s reusable rockets. We had something like this in the form of NASA space shuttles classics, but rehabilitation, is too much to really make space travel profitable again. RAS in the statement, he said that the technology is still some time away -. Maybe five or six years before we can fully reuse business
Whatever the job that
reusable for settlers, it will not be a current model SpaceX, as the Falcon 9 rocket. They are going to need a bigger boat: out shipping a considerable amount of people and goods is not possible with the spacecraft that we have now. (Even with a <22 From Falcon Heavy rocket stages , capable of carrying 117,000 pounds).’s New spaceship, whatever its appearance, would probably run on methane, which is determined musk cheapest option . But
Musk, in conversation, adds a caveat to all this: only five or six years for a reusable rocket “hopefully” marked on it. Some of these plans rely on technology improvements, and he admits these improvements are not easy to predict. It helps to remember, too, that this is still a vague idea: we need an infrastructure for settlers on Mars, and it is not clear how long the gap between “have the technology” “send people to Mars with the technology. “Musk we were between 10 and 20 years of absence (worst case) to put people on Mars, and that SpaceX would simply manage the transport, not colonies real.
