Elon Musk: 1.000 Starship and 20 years of launches to build the first city on Mars
Elon Musk is back to talk about the ambitions martian of SpaceX, going into detail of some of the claims that has released this week during a meeting between some of the startup and the US air force.
In particular, Musk has taken over the speech of the costs of the launch of the Starship, by stating that the objective of aiming at a cost of $ 2 million to launch is crucial if you want to give the way for the development of settlements on Mars capable of self-support. Musk, in fact, believes that it is necessary to use about 1,000 Starship to be able to bring on the Red Planet, all the material necessary for the construction of a small town, and that this can only be done by considering a time span of 20 years. In 2 decades, in fact, will there be enough occasions to be able to launch the Starship, by exploiting the moments of the minimum distance between Earth and Mars.
Musk also reaffirmed that the new half-point strongly on the theme of reuse, to the point of being able to do 3 launches in a single day: so, it may be possible to bring in orbit for 10 million tons of material in a year, a net increase compared to the 500 tonnes per year that can be brought now by using every space vehicle available on the planet.Top of the range with battery infinite, and display super?
