Elon Musk Explains How To Build a Sustainable City On Mars

The CEO of SpaceX, Elon Musk, has shared on Twitter details about his company's plans to establish a settlement on Mars that is sustainable for humans.

To make this project a reality, this businessman considers that it would be necessary build

around 1,000 spaceships that carry a million tons of cargo for 20 years.

So it will take about 20 years to transfer a million tons to Mars Base Alpha, which is hopefully enough to make it sustainable

The reason for that deadline would be that "the planets line up once every two years," so it would only be feasible to make a trip every 24 months.

This week, Musk announced that a Starship spacecraft flight, designed to move people and cargo to the Moon and Mars, would be worth two million dollars and its operating costs would be much lower than those of "a small rocket."

Payload to orbit per year of Starship fleet is most mind-blowing metric, as it’s designed to fly 3X per day, which is ~ 1000X per year

In addition, the CEO of SpaceX explained that Starship is designed to fly up to three times a day and about 1,000 times a year.
