Florida Today reports that SpaceX CEO Elon Musk elaborated on the company’s plans to establish a colony on the surface of Mars in a series of recent tweets. Expanding on earlier details for the Big Falcon Rocket’s planned Mars mission, Musk “said the latest roadmap shows that a red planet base could be established as soon as 2028.” The “ambitious timeline,” however, is likely to be revised as the company “grapples with its short-term targets of returning astronauts to space from US soil in the latter half of next year, continued resupply missions of the International Space Station and deployment of the Starlink constellation.” (Image Credit: NASA)
