Elon Musk Just Made A Huge Mars Announcement

Russia gets on board with NASA to look into Deep Space Gateway in lunar orbit
Richard Branson has said he wants to flawless a "rocket plane" to transport people between cities on Earth via space. Moreover, the spaceship, which also serves as the system's second stage, has been modified to have a delta wing. This extra size allows the BFR to carry a larger payload of up to 150 tons as well as 240 tons of methane (fuel) and 860 tons of liquid oxygen.
Encased in a reusable heat shield, the Transport is powered by six Raptor engines - four engines configured for use in vacuum with two configured for sea level pressure. It will also include common areas, a galley and a solar store shelter.
Elon Musk's biggest critics argue some of his larger than life ideas may be less than feasible, but on Friday the billionaire put his money where his mouth is. Granted the BFR doesn't exist yet, but the company's own, likely conservative estimates for the Falcon Heavy place a flightat $90 million.
Mars, the almost airless planet, is about 140 million miles from Earth the journey to the planet would take around six to nine months.
"I think it's the right time now to start discussing, start planning for something which is as inspiring as the space station but on a truly global, international-cooperation basis".
He says he is refocusing his SpaceX company to work on just one type of vehicle that could do all of the firm's current work and interplanetary travel.
Musk ended his presentation with a video teasing the idea that was created to be the proverbial mic drop.
"The tooling for main tanks has been ordered, the facility is being built". Earlier this year, the company tested it to find its failure point.

"The future is far more exciting if we are a spacefaring civilization than if we're not", said Musk.
"I feel fairly confident we can build the ship and be ready for the launch in five years". Most destinations would take less than half that time. We're going to have to have help. On Mars itself, the risk from space radiation is also enormous because unlike Earth, Mars doesn't have enough of a magnetic field to shield it from the radiation particles constantly being emitted from the Sun (these are the same particles that produce the attractive aurorae on Earth - so we won't see these on Mars!).
Musk said that when the development tank broke, it shot up 300 feet (90 meters) in the air and then landed in the ocean.
Musk described the 2022 deadline as an "aspiration", but he has some pretty detailed plans for how he wants to get there.
BFR would be incredibly cheap to launch according to Musk.
He's not done there, however, with the BFR's real objective being to get humans to Mars, which in turn involves stopping off at the SpaceX moon base. Crucially, the rockets would land vertically, meaning they can be re-used for other missions. With enough practice, he believes SpaceX could get to a landing reliability that is on par with the safest commercial airliners.
SpaceX's vision of a city on Mars. Ships carrying crews would arrive in 2024, he added. This craft would be able to refuel in orbit and set out to Mars with full tanks.

The Plus' dual camera system offers 12-megapixel wide angle and telephoto cameras as well as a 7-megapixel HD camera for FaceTime. In fact, it continues every time it uses the Face ID , saving an essential data that the device can use later when it's needed.

But what about rediscovering the running game? "I've been a huge fan of McDermott since the day he got there", Lombardi said. On Sunday, 32 Broncos took a knee during the national anthem, many of them with their arms locked in a show of solidarity.
No 'sufficient progress' in Brexit talks with UK
He said: "I continue to believe that Brexit is a very negative project, that it is, in fact, a waste of time and energy". The UK's chief Brexit negotiator, David Davis , took the opposing stance to that of Europe on Monday.
