Watch Elon Musk explain how SpaceX will colonize Mars in under five minutes

New, 19 comments

As Elon Musk is wont to do, he took the stage in front of a rabid crowd this afternoon to lay out an extraordinarily ambitious vision of the future that at times felt inspiring, brilliant, and unbelievable, if not all at once. This time around, Musk was outlining the first details for how SpaceX planned to bring people to and from Mars and ultimately facilitate human colonization of the Red Planet. The full presentation lasted an hour — longer if you count the bizarro Q&A that followed — but we've boiled the event down to under five minutes in case you're looking for more of a crash course.
