The Next Mission To Mars?
I’ve always spoken very highly of Elon Musk. He is not just the founder of Tesla Motors, PayPal and SpaceX with a net worth of over 14 billion dollars, but his vision for the future is what drives progress and innovation.
In a shocking and bold move (even for him), the SpaceX company tweeted today that their next goal is a planned mission to the Red Planet in less than 2 years. This would make it the first private company to attempt such a feat.
The goal of the mission, whether it’s for scientific exploration or a demonstration of their technological prowess, remains unclear. They do however have a strong partnership with NASA and the most knowledgable engineers in the world to figure it out.
