Moving to Mars

modules Not too many years ago the scientific verdict was that Mars was inhabitable. Now, the architect of Tesler, a gentleman called Elon Musk is planning to colonize it, first by sending robots to build modules on the surface and construct living quarters in the underground caverns. Food will be hydrophonically grown on the surface. Musk contemplates getting one million people to Mars. In September of this year, SpaceX was revealed, an Interplanetary Transport System (ITS) designed to carry at least 100 people to the Red Planet per flight. The brilliance of this spaceship is that it's reuseability will assist humanity in establishing a permanent, self-sustaining colony on the Red Planet within the next 50 to 100 years. Now, the dream of one enterprising explorer could come true. How often have we heard that dreams can come true and that the impossible is possible?
