Giant rocket to take 200 to Mars
ASTRONOMY Tesla billionaire Elon Musk reveals the details about the future flagship of his space agency, SpaceX, which he first told about last year.
The rocket has changed its name to BFR – which, according to Musk, stands for “Big F--ing Rocket”! Allegedly, the giant rocket will transport between 90 and 200 people to Mars at a time. The travellers will sleep in one of the 40 cabins in the rocket or relax in the large communal areas at the top of the rocket. BFR will have a top speed of 29,000 km/h and will take the colonists to Mars in somewhere between 150 and 300 days. According to Musk, the project is on track to launch an unmanned BFR to Mars as soon as 2022.
