Elon Musk tweeted the latest concept renders of SpaceX Big Falcon Rocket (BFR), it’s a futuristic spaceship that would take up to 100 people and 150 tons of cargo to Mars. This project marks the beginning of an incredible journey, an effort to colonize Mars, in fact, SpaceX has selected its first private passenger to be launched in BFR, this passenger will fly around the moon.
Elon Musk wants humans to have two planets to live on, it might sound crazy but it makes sense. Just in case something happen to our planet, because we have taken it for granted and some of us just don’t know how to stop, we might have an option. BFR consists of 157-foot-tall spaceship sitting on top of a 191-foot-tall rocket booster, when fully fueled, it weighs around 9 million pounds, and of course, the entire system will be 100% reusable. It’s an ambitious project that sounds just like science fiction but it could also write a history of this era. According to BusinessInsider, the most important question would be: what if this mission to Mars ended in tragedy? Are we ready to accept this?
