Later today, at 2:30 p.m. EST, Elon Musk will talk about his plans for colonizing Mars. His discussion will be broadcast on YouTube and you can tune in to watch the event as it unfolds.
According to SpaceX, 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.” It sounds like there are going to be times when it might go a bit over the heads of us everyday folk. “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.”
Nonetheless, Musk and his team seem like the best-fit group of folks to get us to Mars. If you’re interested in humans making their way to the red planet, this is an event you won’t want to miss.
