After making a bold adjustment to Tesla Motors outlook, saying the company could produce 500,000 cars annually by 2018, Musk now says that he says SpaceX may be able to have people on Mars by 2025.
More specifically, he expects to launch a manned mission to Mars in 2024, which would arrive in 2025.
He made the comments at Vox Media s Code Conference.
But SpaceX has also managed to land several of its rockets, and it hopes to re-use those rockets in the next few months, he said.
This will be a very big rocket.
Musk said that in September this year, he s going to present the architecture for Mars colonization, and what it would require in order to transport a large number of people and a large amount of hardware to Mars.
