Washington: SpaceX founder Elon Musk said he hopes his company will land the Starship spacecraft on Mars and send humans to the Moon within the next eight years.
“What will things be like eight years from now…I think we will have landed on Mars and I think we will have sent people to the Moon,” Musk said on Friday.
Musk added that a lot of work will be required to live on Mars.
Moreover, Musk said he hopes the third Starship flight test this year will reach orbit and prove the spacecraft can reliably deorbit.
Regarding the Moon, Musk said the next step to think about is building a base on it.
