SpaceX unveils ambitious plan to settle Mars


Wanted: Adventurous spirits willing to risk their lives to open a new frontier on Mars. Workers needed to run foundries, install solar panels and open the Red Planet’s first pizza parlor.

If that sounds like an exciting future, Elon Musk hopes to offer you a ride in perhaps less than a decade.

The SpaceX founder and CEO on Tuesday in Mexico unveiled ambitious plans for a giant rocket and spaceship that could send up to 100 people to Mars, starting what he hopes could be a million-strong civilization within a century.
