Elon Musk: SpaceX will Land Starship Rockets on Mars Well Before 2030

SpaceX boss Elon Musk said that his company SpaceX would launch Starships on Mars before 2030 and urged Europe to aim higher in the Space technology race. His comment was in response to an Ars Technica article that stated that Europe would start to focus on a competitive launch system from 2030. Europian Space agencies were tailing SpaceX.

Elon Musk tweeted that “SpaceX will be landing Starships on Mars well before 2030. The tough threshold is making Mars Base Alpha self-sustaining.”

Elon Musk is planning to build 1000 plus spaceships which will be launched thrice in a day, and he is moreover planning to send around 1 million people on Mars.

He also mentioned that “They are aiming too low” in the tweet thread, and Only rockets that are thoroughly & quickly reusable will be competing. Everything else will seem like a cloth biplane in the age of jets. here is the tweet

The 387 feet long starships are meant to be fully reusable, and the recent prototypes were tested, and they all were exploded during the testing.

SpaceX will be going to launch Starship Serial Number 11 or SN11. Elon Musk has given various timeframes for his Mars mission, but now the mission might take a bit longer than expected. Previously in an interview back in February, he stated that it would take around five and a half years for the crewed mission of its starship rockets to reach mars.

Musk also told around October and December 2020 that he is highly confident about his mission, and SpaceX has a fighting chance to launch the uncrewed mission by 2024, followed by a crewed mission two years later, that is in 2026.

In 2017 he also predicted that SpaceX would send cargo ships on Mars by 2022, followed by the crewed mission in 2024. Kevin J DeBruin, the former NASA rocket scientist, previously said that Elon Musk’s SpaceX could lead humans successfully to mars by 2026 if everything goes as planned. Indeed, we all hope Musk will be successful in doing that.
