In case you didn’t know already, Elon Musk is one of the world’s leading innovators in space travel and the one that will supposedly get us to Mars if everything goes down his way.
He created the company known as SpaceX and he is the leading force when it comes to creating low-cost and energy-efficient spacecrafts. He hopes to bring humans to Mars by the end of the decade and according to him, a mere $200,000 is all that it should take per person for a full travel experience to the Red Planet.
Elon reported that the reusable rocket that he’s working on should be able to make the trip from Mars to Earth in about 20 minutes or so and that it could house over 200 people on it.
But, a recent discovery was made which completely shocked everybody around the globe. A book titled The Mars Project was released in 1952 by a man named Wernher von Braun in which he spoke of how humanity will eventually get to Mars thanks to a man named Elon.
He was a rocket physicist, an astronautics engineer, and a space architect and while working on his book he went into great detail about the one that will get us there in the first place.
