Billionaire Elon Musk has unveiled the latest version of a rocket aimed at reaching Mars. It envisages the first orbital test of the rocket to be in the next six months:

“We have a choice – what future do we want? Do we want a future where we rule the universe. Or we want to be forever bound to Earth. I choose the first one. I hope you agree with me. The critical breakthrough we need to become a space civilization is to make space travel accessible. “

┬áMusk’s mission to the moon coincides with NASA’s goal of sending people there by 2024. The administration of President Trump has also set out to work with US space companies to build a long-term presence on the moon’s surface before eventually colonizing Mars.
