No one ever thought that we would be riding vehicles, but we do. No one ever thought that we'd cross oceans, but we are doing it with ease, No one ever dared to imagine what it feels like to be on the moon, but humans reached there.
I completely believe that there will be a day when every human would repeat these lines "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind" - Neil Armstrong
And I can confidently say, Elon Musk is the one who lives this quote.
Elon Musk at the astronautical meeting of experts revealed that he has a plan ready for sending humans to Mars. He intends to make a ship that would be reusable.
No, it is not an overused word. Elon Musk indeed is a future of humanity. Serving his services for companies like Tesla, SolarCity, OpenAl, and currently, being a CEO and CTO of SpaceX, he has all the rights to dream for Mars. I would say, this is the only man that can make it possible for us.
Don't forget my words, I have said earlier, he is the man with a plan. Elon also pointed out in this meeting that reaching to Mars could be possible in near future, and to be precise, it can be made possible before 2022.
He is unprepared for the amount of money it would need, but all the nations together can make it happen.
"Either we can stay on planet earth and wait for our extinction, or we can become multi-planetary species."
The best alternative is to become a spacefaring species and give our future generations some more places to exist and explore.
SpaceX has successfully tested Falcon9 booster which helps the machine to speed up, while the first spacecraft to Mars would be as huge as two Boeing 747 aircrafts, carrying almost 100 passengers.
Elon Musk also informed that the spacecraft will create its own fuel with the help of water and carbon dioxide. He's still researching on it.
Elon in his speech added, the sole purpose of my life at this point is to make life interplanetary.
NASA told in their statement that "NASA applauds all those who want to take the next giant step in space." NASA added, this journey is very important and we want the best of the people, government, and industries to make it happen.
