Mr. musk hopes to build a big city on the red planet, but he also knows that people living in the space colony may want to surf the Internet. When we bring people to Mars, they will need a way to communicate, she added. In fact, I think it will be more critical to have an aerial Internet like a star chain around Mars
Connecting the two planets is to make sure there is strong communication between Mars and earth, schottville said This will mean that there will be some kind of Internet bridge between Mars and earth.
The SpaceX coo also explained that the company would not abandon earth just because it wanted to aim at Mars.
Musk created SpaceX to send humans to other planets, and spaceships could one day send earthlings to Mars. To achieve this, musk said he needed a fleet of 1000 starships to build a self-sufficient sustainable city on Mars.
Musk has vowed to send a million people to Mars by 2050. According to him, SpaceXs goal is to build 1000 starships in a facility in southern Texas within 10 years, which is equivalent to building 100 a year. Given that the company has not yet built any fully functional starships, this is a considerable challenge.
Musks ultimate goal is to launch 1000 spaceship flights to Mars every year, an average of three times a day. Each time, each spacecraft will send 100 passengers to the red planet, making them citizens of the big cities on Mars. (small)
