The Race to Mars

SpaceX and Boeing set their sights on the red planet

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk recently predicted that “a million humans could live on Mars by the 2060s.” SpaceX is currently planning on sending the first humans to Mars in the next decade or so. Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg also threw his hat into the ring, stating that he’s “convinced that the first person to step foot on Mars will arrive there riding on a Boeing rocket.” While the exact technical details for both companies are unknown, the race to space is beginning.
