Elon Musk Sets his Plans to Colonize Mars and Save Humanity at SpaceX event

Elon Musk Sets his Plans to Colonize Mars

The founder of SpaceX, Elon Musk is having the great ambitious vision towards the mission to Mars. Elon said this could be as soon as 2022 which is three years sooner than the estimates. Moving the Human race to the other planetary, which is the serious thing and Musk has coming up with outlined plans.

During the 67th annual International Astronautical Congress event held in Guadalajara, Mexico, Musk given the outline information about the SpaceX Plan and also the prototype video in this event.

This project is involved with the new technology with the reusable rockets, carbon fiber fuel tanks, and ultra-powered engines. More over these spaceships are capable of carrying hundred or more passengers to the Planet Mars for Landing and then returning to earth to get more passengers to this red planet.

“What I want to try to achieve here is to make Mars seem possible – like it’s something we can achieve in our lifetimes,” Says Musk.

Musk wants to colonize Mars and build the civilization right there. These are the things he wants to do apart from going to the Mars. So all he need is the gear which helps in reducing the cost of this project and cheap enough for work.

Bill Nye, CEO of the Planetary Society and also organizes some popular TV shows, was in audience and described the energy of the crowd as “extraordinary”.

“Watching the crowd go absolutely wild today tells me that the best is yet ahead for space exploration,” he says, adding to it he says, that Musk had presented “a very aggressive schedule that seemed feasible to the crowd”.

“No matter what we send to Mars, I very much hope we conduct a thorough, careful search for life before we consider landing people and cargo. I believe the discovery of life or evidence of life would change the way we think about the cosmos and our place within it,” Nye added.

NASA had a word that it has made “Extraordinary Progress” in developing the plan for the sustainable Mars exploration and building the partnerships both in the public and private sectors.

So far this is one of the better things we came across in the Space, and there are another interesting thing came across regarding the planet Mercury. As per the recent reports, Mercury is the first ever planet after earth containing the tectonic activity. Stay tuned for the more details about these activities.

NASA scheduled SpaceX Dragon Spacecraft departure from International Space station for 11th May, 2016 from resupply mission CRS-8. Launched 8th April on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, Dragon is the only space station resupply spacecraft able to return to Earth undamaged.

The Dragon launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS) for the company’s 8th NASA-contracted commercial resupply mission, was docked to International space station on 09th April 2016. The Cargo spacecraft delivered about 7,000 pounds of science & research investigations including inflammable BEAM (Bigelow Expandable Activity module) on April 10th.

 NASA officially announced the return date of the Dragon on 5th May 2016 and unveiled that cargo spacecraft will be undocked on 11th May 2016 from Harmony Module using Canadarm2 robotic arm, which will be operated at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston. The skilled robotics controllers will carefully guide the Dragon into place and Tim Peake of ESA (European Space Agency), Expedition 47 robotic arm operator will execute the command for release at 9:18 a.m.

Before being commanded to begin deorbit burn, Dragon at 2 p.m will fire its thrusters three times to move to a safe zone from the space station. The pressurized section of the spacecraft, referred often as capsule will splash down in the Pacific Ocean about 2:55 p.m. NASA Television will broadcast the departure of Dragon from 9:00 a.m, EDT but the deorbit burn and the splash down will not be on covered.

NASA’s recovery team which reach Dragon in three boats will retrieve the capsule from the Pacific Ocean and about 3,700 pounds of payload will be carried back to laboratories for further study.

Dragon cargo includes samples from human research, biology and biotechnology studies, physical science investigations and education activities sponsored by the NASA experiments and Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS). The spacecraft also will return the final batch of human research samples from the one-year crew mission.

In case of unfavourable weather conditions in the Pacific, the backup departure and splashdown date is anticipated to Saturday i.e., 14th May 2016.
