SpaceX Founder, CEO, and Lead Designer Elon Musk will discuss the long-term technical challenges that need to be solved to support the creation of a permanent, self-sustaining human presence on Mars. The technical presentation will focus on potential architectures for sustaining humans on the Red Planet that industry, government and the scientific community can collaborate on in the years ahead.

@nancy endicott Yes, there's a vid of the predicted long term settlement of Mars, ever-increasing numbers of 'willing volunteers' wanting to spend the rest of their lives in an in-hospital environment of extreme cold, dust and rocks. The first-ever Martian-born human visiting Earth and, of course, 'itching' to get back to 'home-sweet-home' - probably wouldn't have the option to stay anyway. While one has to be impressed by all the technological advances being made, it would be interesting to see if Elon Musk or any of his staff actually make the trip. Probably all be 'excused' because of their 'valuable work' churning out all these Starships. However, any new employees might be well advised to check the small print on their contracts.

I have looked at a lot of videos about colonizing the moon & Mars. And I haven't found any with my same ideas. I think we should set up a moon colony on earth. We should have inflatable domes, which we cover with 3D printers with simulated moon mortar. The domes should be connected to each other by inflatable tunnels covered with simulated moon mortar. There should be living quarters, hydroponic green houses, gardens with garden soil for recreational gardening, a 5 acre pasture with one inch of garden soil and one inch of grass turf, a park with artificial turf and with small sections of real grass turf, and maybe even a very small zoo. All the domes will have plastic floors so no water is lost. Condensation forming on the ceilings will be drained into the water supply. All the domes will be blown up with compressed air from earth and will have a refresh system, which will refresh the air and maintain the air pressure. Humidity, Temperature will be maintained by humidifiers, heaters, fans and coolers. Light will be provided by multi-color LEDs, mostly white. Power will be supplied at first by solar power, and later by nuclear or fusion power. All water will be re-cycled, almost zero loss of water. There will be a bull, a cow, two sheep, and two goats, two chickens, two turkeys, two fish, and two rabbits. There will also be pets, two dogs, two cats, two bunnies, etc. (and maybe a small zoo) All of this will be set up by astronauts and robots before the colonist arrive. The first colonist will be 5 fathers and 5 mothers, and 90 babies. The parents will be good parents, gardeners, farmers, zoo keepers, teachers, etc.. During the first two years an exact duplicate facility will be built on the moon. When the babies are two years old, they will move to the moon and live on the moon. Or if it is proven that they will be too young to travel to the moon than the facility on earth will be added to, to accommodate 10 more parents and 90 more babies. The two year olds would move into the new addition. Every two years the facility will be either added to, or 100 people will move to the moon. This plan will allow the kids to grow up in the isolation of the colony, and will make it easier for them to live in the isolation of the colony on the moon. And will allow them to grow up on the moon and be better able to adjust to the lower gravity on the moon, although some artificial gravity maybe eventually provided. This artificial gravity will especially be good for the parents. The kids will have everything in the facility to keep them occupied and entertained. Also they could have some books, movies, games, etc., especially adapted for them, being careful not to give them anything that would make them feel isolated. After 20 years there could be 2000 people living on the moon, most of whom grew up on the moon. This program could be speeded up so in 20 years there could be 4000, 6000, or 8000 people living on the moon. This program could be simultaneously done to colonize Mars so we could have 2000 people on the Moon and Mars at the same time. For the moon we could send supplies every month, but for Mars we could only send supplies every 26 months. So I suggest we send 10, 20, or 30 rockets to Mars every 26 months all at the same time. We could have several refueling stations along the way to mars and orbiting mars so rockets could refuel along the way to mars and right before landing on mars so the empty rocket would have enough fuel to take off again, refuel in space and return to Earth. Eventually the colonist could grow trees, bamboo, and other plants for raw materials that could be used for making things. Eventually the moon and Mars could export minerals or small expensive items that were assembled on the moon or Mars, like jewelry, iphones, iwatches, etc. Or grown on the moon like caviar, marijuana, etc. What do you think ? :-)

Watching this today 1/18/22 it is clear that reusability of starships is unlikely. Watching how fast Elon iterates on rocket and starship design, there is zero chance that a starship made in 2025 will come close to competing in performance to the 2027 or 2028 version of starship as it will take months to get there and it has to wait for right time to launch back to earth which could be another 18-20 months. Afraid we are just going to reuse boosters and waste starships on Mars for many years. It can return early colonists and some Mars surface experiments and maybe terraformed material for analysis, but the rocket will be scrap when it comes back to Earth.

Elon will truly be remembered as the one, who made true space travel possible. A brilliant visionary just like Steve Jobs.

@John Toas gigavolt strength electric field is capable of inducing several tons of thrust upon ions created as cascade ionization occurs within the atmosphere. Currently the highest voltage humans humans have generated is only 20 megavolts apparently. Voltage is the measure of joules per coulomb of charge. Increasing the voltage imparts more force per ion. A sufficient electric field strength breaks atmosphere free of electrons and each ion is accelerated enough to ionize with each collision called cascade ionization.

Have you consider the potential of the mission ending up being space pollution if your mission fails? For example, there are current NASA's space instruments that are stuck in space due to the lack of current knowledge to return them back to earth. I recommend exploring the possibilities that current NASA's technology offers you in your mission to Mars now and in the future on space pollution. If you can't bring the Dragon fly space craft back to earth? I would consider using a radio transporter to communicate between earth and mars like the current communications technology being used with cell phones? How do you feel about that?

Wouldn’t pressurized earth air be sufficient to float in the Venusian atmosphere, considering CO2 has higher molecular weight, therefore somewhat more dense than earth’s atmosphere? That simplifies a design for a floating landing pad on Venus significantly. The main issue then would be how to get starship to hold lateral speed along with such a large float.

The thing about space, it requires a lot of patience. Even with the best engine on earth (RD-190 MTRE) it would still take about 5 months at best to reach mars, the orbital deceleration and descent would take at least a day and then landing would be a whole other hurdle. Fact is, it's much easier to use a trillion to kill 250,900 civilians in a pointless war, it generates political satisfaction among tax payers. Waiting an entire year for a mission to another planet would generate fatigue. If Elon wants to go to Mars, he should pitch the moon to everyone...then once a Lunar station is up...we have a space elevator and pitch the Asteroid belt and Mars. Don't get me wrong, I definitely think mars would be a wonderful industrial planet for Humans, we can keep earth green and fresh and greenhouse effect the hell out of mars till it has a functional atmosphere...plus I think it will be easier to have a space elevator on a low gravity planet, enabling belt mining and possibly interstellar travel at some point. But mostly it would be about creating a post scarcity civilization, and maintaining earth's beauty and capacity to sustain our species as currently constituted. So realistically, there's a lot more to Mars than the average person can fathom; but that also means we'll have to be satisfied with planting trees under whose shade our children will rest.

5 Years later and I'm watching this for nostalgia. They missed launching dragon to mars in 2018 and 2020, but to be fair they completely abandoned it as a method of landing on mars for the Starship which is 1000 times bigger than dragon and will also propulsive land. At the time of this comment they had just recently landed their first Starship so its totally doable. So not only has Space X since this no only landed hundreds of rockets, they have launched thousands of satellites, resupplied the international space station dozens of times, and successfully landed a new version of their mars vehicle over 1000 times larger than what they had imagined doing here. What has any other space agency done? Who else has landed a rocket from orbit? Nobody? Where is Jeff Bazos? Is he still comparing a 100 meter hop to landing a rocket that was in space a couple minutes ago? Why hasn't Elon been approached at least to take over as director of NASA? I doubt he would want to but they should sure want him.

It’s all about getting humans ready on what they wanna do and their interests, back then everyone was interested in war and such, and yes that’s when the governments play a huge role with the people they “have and take care of” inside their government, influencing their people to like what they want you to like, some rebel but then they bring in some problems inside there to get your mind occupy from other things

@Hexoson Yes, however, it is kind of funny to compare it to the NIMH rat experiments. Close quarters, and high populations aren't great for sanity.
Hexoson 2 роки тому
@PINSTRIPE Well there would be hundreds of people, so it isn't like you would be bored with them right away. Besides, they are on the ship for the same reason, so I'm sure you would all have similar interests in colonizing Mars. I would assume they would have plenty of activities you could partake in, plus the ship is not all that small. Also, I HIGHLY doubt that there won't be any guards on-board to ensure the peace. I can almost guarantee they will have guards. Besides, SpaceX won't just choose anyone to go on the ship. They would likely do a background check to ensure that everyone's flight is safe, kind of like an actual flight on Earth.

That ship has to withstand 63k + mph through unknown space and atmospheres… would certainly rip apart or explode right ? If we could make it. I anticipate the first several groups of martians will die fairly soon after arrival. Being their only resources would come from the same ship they arrived on. 100 ppl and most of them ill from numerous conditions. The learning curve will be extremely harsh even though adaptability is one of human’s strongest traits, there is a limit. There are soooooo many unknown variables in play. I suppose the only way to learn is to try but astronauts go under intense training to withstand the journey. Let alone I’d bet they’re mostly all incredibly intelligent. The average person is no match for this. it’s obviously ambitious and who knows maybe one day it is possible but it wil take centuries to pull this off. I believe building massive space stations occupied by humans and further exploration should be our focus. Therefore getting us that much closer and cutting down the distance to mars ….. don’t worry guys I’m working real hard to make my first trillion dollars to make it happen, don’t you worry 🙃 and I’m totally qualified 😜

One day we may be on those moons on every planet. All different environments and ways of living. Imagine being born on Mars and then going to live on a moon on Venus maybe even Neptune, no idea how it would be possible. But we could literally travel to any planet we would want to just because we can one day... maybe just some insight.
Viking Ghost 117
Viking Ghost 117 10 місяців тому
I'm not saying it's not possible, I genuinely believe all things are possible the more we advance. My only perceivable concern about living on Mars is what that would do to our bodies even if the atmosphere was made sustainable, specifically the affect of less gravity on your body through prolonged periods of time. Science has shown that the less gravity/stress on the human body the weaker your body becomes, specifically the bone structure... So although we may be able to be like super humans at first when arriving on Mars, eventually our bodies would adapt to the gravity, and ultimately become weaker.... in theory your (i forget the ratio but just for the argument's sake) 100 lbs on earth converting to whatever that was, 20 lbs on Mars, eventually that 20 lbs may actually begin to feel like 70-100 lbs on our bodies. It would require much less traumatic force on our bones for them to break... we'd essentially all become as fragile as glass. SO, we would need to find a way to either safely adapt to that, OR, we will need to create something that controls the gravity of a planet... which to my knowledge is, size... we'd have to literally make it bigger unless we come up with some kind of breakthrough, and can find a different way to control gravity.... OR we'll have to find a way to increase the gravity in our own living quarters... wherever we spend the most time, which could be artificially simulated.... Then there's the issue of a day being 24.5 hrs rather than 24... arguably very close to Earth, however just the effect on our bodies sleep schedule/pattern. Would our bodies just naturally adapt and we'd stay up 30 minutes longer every day? What kind of stress would that put on your mental state, as well as your body.... if you don't get enough sleep that literally lead to all kinds of health problems, and ultimately a shortening of your life.... OR we could just have a clock we live by that's still just 24 hours and take that factor out of the equasion but does it really? If any of you are familiar with the statistics of daylight savings connected with increased amounts of heart attacks when you lose an hour, as well as a decrease when you gain an hour, as apposed to the average (normal) amount of heart attacks hospitals typically record having per day/week/month/year.... then that evidence suggests, that 30 minutes loss of sleep each day would ultimately have similar results.... But say we don't lose our 24 hour period... that means the sun will be at a different position in the sky every single day when we need to go to bed, and our bodies circadium rythm (our natural connection between the rotation of the earth as it orbits around the sun) would not be screwed up once or twice a year like it is in some places on Earth with daylight savings... it would be screwed with literally EVERY DAY. I am a programmer so I litterally don't look at problems as a bad thing, but something to eventually solve, or else the program will not work, not the way it's supposed to at least... and this my friends is a very large intense program type, and it needs to function exactly the way it's supposed to, when it comes to means that our bodies are not meant to adapt to. As an after thought we could artificially create our own sunlight and put that on a 24 hour timer, and do a virtual sun within our living environment and perhaps that's an answer to that problem. To say the very least THIS IS EXCITING, and I look forward to seeing how we solve those problems! Nothing's impossible... every problem has a solution. Glad people like Elon Musk are around to have both the vision and the resources to devote to such exploration. He is the modern day pioneer. We should make a Captain James T. Kirk award and give it to him if he pulls it off.

still think that modular systems should be used in some parts of the deployments. instead of having the starship burn the fuel it gets from refueling, why not another booster shipped up as cargo with its own fuel (solid or liquid) that would attach modularly to the starship and act as its thrust provider for the journey?... multiples of them could be stacked, and put into orbit around mars and earth for return / send off ... trips.... you'd still want to fuel the starship for lift off and landing purposes, and for controlled slow down manuvers ... would just not need to refuel them as much because of the modular docking? / add on units that would optimize fuel use.... i am also curious if the solar arrays can be deployed a 2nd time on planet? at least for ships that are not meant to be used for return but as part of a base / settlement structure.

Nice, but half an order of magnitude is times ~3 (= √10), not 5. You can easily see this by going one order of magnitude - it's times 10, so if you went first half and then the second half, times 5*5 or 25 would make no sense.
