On October 9, Beijing time, Elon Musk has proposed a plan to ensure the long-term survival of mankind – we must become an interstellar species with space civilization. The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, as a guest on the podcast “sway,” revealed details of the next generation launch vehicle, the starship, and some of the “bleak prospects” for the future of mankind. < p > < p > musk pointed out that “the sun will eventually expand and swallow up the earth”, so human beings need to go to Mars. It will certainly happen, but not soon, he said. The billionaire also pointed out that SpaceX’s reusable “starship” will be the key to making his plan a reality, and that one of its design uses is to carry out Mars missions, including as cargo ships and manned spacecraft. He believes that humans will be able to fly in rockets within the next two years. < / P > < p > a study by the University of Warwick in the United Kingdom shows that the expansion and engulfment of the earth by the sun does happen, but the life of the sun will not come to an end for at least six billion years. For many years, musk has always wanted to conquer Mars, and he has never been afraid to reveal his plans. The key to turning this dream into reality is SpaceX’s large rocket, the star ship. The rocket has been tested and built at the company’s Boca Chica base in Texas. Elon Musk also pointed out that SpaceX’s reusable “starship” rocket would be the key to making his plan a reality. “I think we will launch a star ship sometime next year, which should be around August. We’re going to operate in unmanned automatic mode, “Musk said.” I think manned flight should be safe in two years, absolutely in three years. ” When asked whether he planned to travel on the rocket, musk said he had not considered it, but did not rule out the possibility. Musk had previously suggested that SpaceX would need to produce 1000 ships in nine years to send a million people to Mars. He says his company is achieving that goal. < / P > < p > “we can reduce space costs and save taxpayers a lot of money,” Musk said. “We are promoting reusable rocket launch technology. Reusability is very important for going into space. It’s kind of stupid to use rockets as consumables. You build an incredible machine, and it ends up in the ocean, leaving debris on the bottom of the ocean. It’s crazy. ” < / P > < p > there are many other players in the current space game, including Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon, which owns the private space company Blue origin. At present, blue origin and SpaceX are competing with each other to try to use their spacecraft to send the next human to the moon and become the first company to send tourists into space. On the other hand, musk and Bezos, on the other hand, both focus on the long-term survival of human beings, although they have different ideas on how to ensure the continuity of human beings. Musk made moving to different planets a priority, while Bezos envisioned humans entering the large space station. “But anyway, if you have advanced rockets, you can decide whether to live on the space station or on Mars,” Musk said. “Now we have a long way to go because we can’t even go back to the moon.” < / P > < p > “I think it’s a bit sad that we were able to land on the moon in 1969, but now it’s 2020 and we can’t even go back to the moon. Of course, he said, “we’re slowing down, and we’re going to slow down, and we’re going to make sure that we’re slowing down a little bit, and hopefully we’re going to slow down as time goes on.” < p > < p > musk announced the prototype of the first “star ship” in 2019, with the main goal of sending humans to Mars. He originally planned to launch the rocket in low orbit in March this year, and realize manned launch by the end of 2020. However, the Starship program has experienced some twists and turns since 2019, as musk mentioned in another interview earlier this month. < / P > < p > “I hope we can make a lot of flights,” Musk said. “The first model may not work. This is an unknown area. No one has yet built a fully reusable orbital rocket. So it’s very important to just do this. ” As early as 2005, SpaceX named “BFR” as the name of the planned super heavy rocket. In 2016, SpaceX announced a 12 meter diameter design and called the entire system “interplanetary transport system” (ITS). In 2017, SpaceX announced a new design with a diameter of 9 meters, and the rocket was changed back to “BFR”. Gwen schotteville, President of SpaceX, said its full name was “big Falcon rocket”. However, Elon Musk once explained that he was inspired by the BFG weapon in the game “destroyer”, and the name of the weapon is “big fuking gun”, so BFR is occasionally referred to as “big feeding rocket” by the media. The SpaceX CEO said the rocket will go to Mars for the first time in 2022, carrying only cargo, and then manned in 2024. He also pointed out that other SpaceX products would be “disassembled” to pay for the launch. < / P > < p > SpaceX’s “starship” will be partially reused and capable of flying directly from earth to Mars. Musk believes the rocket, once built, can also be used for travel on earth, allowing passengers to reach anywhere on earth in an hour.
