Got my geek on last night and watched Elon Musks whole presentation about his planned mission to Mars and beyond.
Genuinely inspiring stuff from a brilliant man with a vision. Realistically the only way this was going to happen was with a private company as the political sensitivity of sinking the public purse into this would have held it back years.
My boy and I have been watching all the Space X launches for the last few years and watching the project develop has been amazing. The reusable rockets and the pinpont landings on the barges are just a marvel.
Its going to happen and hopefuly in my lifetime. Actually quite excited about this
Anyone else watching this as it unfolds? - think I may have a boycrush on Elon TBH
The whole presentation ( mach diamonds from the Raptor rocket are sweet)
For those who are extremely geeky I'm sure you will join me in a squeal of self indulgent joy at the fact that there will be 42 engines and he wants to call the first ship 'heart of gold'
