Elon Musk's dream of traveling to Mars and colonizing that planet are real. He has laid out the concept plan of a trip to Mars very elegantly in this video. NASA has always based economical space flight on the concept of reusing rockets that travelled into space. That was the concept of the Space Shuttle program. While it was determined that costs to repair shuttles that returned from space were astronomical and therefore almost cost the same as wasting the rockets, Space X has improved on this. Space X has already successfully returned a rocket booster from space and landed it on a floating platform in the ocean, so the concept of returning rocket boosters for re-use is a reality. This is an enormous step towards making space travel to Mars economical and Space X will not stop there.
Watch the video and be inspired. If you know anything about Elon Musk, he will achieve what he plans to do and will make it economical.
