After the flight to Mars in 2024, the SpaceX boss is planning further projects: colonizing it with billionaires and traveling to the edge of our solar system.

Four months after the first manned space flight for Elon Musk and his space company SpaceX, he names additional goals. Speaking at the Mars Society virtual conference, he said that his first unmanned Mars mission in the launch window is heading to the red planet in 2024. "I think we have a fair chance," said the billionaire humbly. At SpaceX you have to implement innovations faster, he commented via video chat. A few more spaceships will be lost, he admitted. Most recently, three Starship prototypes exploded during stress tests on the s fuel tank.

The WeWork Guy’s Guide to Striking It Rich

  The WeWork Guy’s Guide to Striking It Rich Adam Neumann may be out of a job, but his wild rise is standard operating procedure in Silicon Valley.Among other extraordinary disclosures, it turned out that he had bought we-related trademarks, then charged WeWork $5.9 million to buy them. The press soon uncovered other details to fill out the portrait of a terrible little richling: Neumann’s practice of hotboxing chartered jets, whether his co-passengers liked it or not; his musings about becoming president of the world; his company-wide ban on meat that left executives puzzling over how to implement it.

Billionaires settle on Mars

Musk wants to see the new ships in orbit next year. SpaceX is scheduled to demonstrate refueling in space in 2022. Then you can start with flights to the moon, Musk continues. His company recently signed a contract with Masten Space Systems to transport their lunar module Masten XL 1 to the moon . In October next year, a Falcon-3 rocket is supposed to bring the moon lander Nova-C from Intuitive Machines there.

Musk spoke of wanting to colonize the red planet after the Mars mission. A million people could move into a city built there. According to his idea, these should primarily include people who “can also afford it”. However, he names the production of fuel as the highest priority. He thinks of work droids that - controlled from Earth - set up such a factory. From there he targets Venus. He could imagine visiting this planet with Starship. Musk names large asteroids, the moons of Jupiter and even visits to the Kuiper Belt as the next destinations. This would have brought his spaceships to the edge of our solar system. Around 70,000 celestial bodies with a diameter of more than 100 kilometers are believed to be there, including the dwarf planets Pluto and Eris.

Berlin's ill-fated new airport finally ready for take-off .
Nine years late and eye-wateringly over budget, the Berlin region's new international airport will finally open on Saturday -- in the middle of a global pandemic that has crippled air travel. "We are ready for take-off!" insists the management team at the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER), set to replace the German capital's ageing Tegel and Schoenefeld airports. But the mood is one of relief rather than celebration.
