SpaceX’s Elon Musk lays out Mars mission, Central Florida’s role


SpaceX’s Elon Musk, standing on a stage in a suit much like the Tony Starkcharacter from the Iron Man films, laid out his plans for inter-planetary colonization of Mars and how Central Florida plays into it — and boy is it ambitious.

The billionaire/business mogul explained how he plans to design a rocket that will take up to 100 people per launch to Mars. The ultimate goal is to colonize Earth’s neighboring planet and have more than 1 million humans on the planet within the next 100 years.
