Space X unveils new rocket, plans for Mars and Earth

Elon Musk is back in Adelaide for updates on Space X and plans for the world's largest lithium-ion battery

Travel to and from Mars will, however, require a propellant production plant. The tooling for the main tanks is being ordered, and the facility is being built.

We all know of SpaceX owner and ambitious entrepreneur Elon Musk's plans to conquer Mars, but those familiar with his work know he also wants to revolutionise human travel down here on Earth. The rocket, made using company's technology and resources, may come with reusable tankers.

Although just a theory at the moment, Musk is aiming to begin construction of the rocket in the next six to nine months. But it was a rocket that won't leave Earth's orbit which grabbed much of the attention. Musk said that he aims to make this happen with customers paying same as what they do for a full fare economy for an aircraft.

As for landing on Mars, one of the trickiest problems in spaceflight, Musk says that the spacecraft will use a propulsive landing method similar to the one that Falcon 9 rockets use.

If SpaceX can pull this off, it will be the first in history to land humans on Mars.

Watch a demo video of the rocket below.

A video illustrating the idea showed passengers taking a large boat from a dock in New York City to reach the floating launchpad. The only difference is that instead of heading to another planet, the destination is another city in the world- Shanghai.

Meanwhile, the longest trips - such as from the UK to Australia - would take no more than an hour.

Elon Musk took to the stage at the International Aeronautical Congress to reveal SpaceX's grand plans for colonising Mars, which he has been foretelling for years. Passengers could fly to most countries on Earth within 30 minutes, and anywhere on the planet definitively within an hour. "I feel fairly confident that we can complete the ship and be ready for a launch in about five years".
