SpaceX: to boldly go to Mars

SpaceX plans to first establish a cargo route to Mars with shipments every 26 months, then people will probably follow.

Suggested Cargo

Here's what the Innovation Future Specialist suggests Elon Musk might want to consider in the cargo:

  • 3D printer (using Mars dust as one of the base ingredients)
  • Solar power components
  • Specialised mining and tunnelling tools, and
  • Robots

Robot Welcome

The robots use the other resources to build the shell of a Mars base ready for the arrival of astronauts. Upon arrival they would have access to a shielded underground base, solar powered electricity, and other facilities.
