Musk to Mars

Elon Musk and SpaceX have laid out the first details of their planned trip to Mars, and as expected, it’s overly ambitious, on a shorter timeframe than will actually occur, and lacking in actual technical explanations as to how it is going to occur. All that being said, it is a wonderful dream, and I shall be looking forward to watching it immensely. Just from the safety of my arm chair, until such time as Musk’s safety record improves somewhat.

I would especially recommend Source #2 (Selenian Boondocks), as it’s a rocket scientist’s analysis of the feasibility of SpaceX’s plan, and points out a number of the failings that Elon Musk glossed over during his talk.
