For many years, scientists and dreamers have fantasized what space life would be like. On planets, in a space ship, anywhere really. They imagine how we would live, how humans would, in any way, be able to survive.
Elon Musk shares his own fantasies and how he will make Mars thrive with life,
“It would be quite fun to be on Mars because you would have gravity that is about 37 percent of that of Earth, so you would be able to lift heavy things and bound around. Furthermore, the day is remarkably close to that of Earth. We just need to change the populations because currently we have seven billion people on Earth and none on Mars.”
Musk explains only a small portion of what life on Mars will be like. Heading there will be no easy task, as going to a new world will never be. Scientists and mathematicians are trying new ways to get to Mars and change history.

SpaceX and NASA have the idea of making their way towards the Red Planet, but there are many things to figure out. Like the how the dreamers dream, what will it be like? What will we do once we get there and how will we get there?
Everything will be different.
Not only the oxygen and temperature will be different, but the way us, as humans, see and think. Physically and mentally.
“Mars has been flown by, orbited, smacked into, radar examined, and rocketed onto, as well as bounced upon, rolled over, shoveled, drilled into, baked and even blasted. Still to come: Mars being stepped on.” Buzz Aldrin writes in his recent book, Mission to Mars: My Vision for Space Exploration.
Mars is most definitely a possibility for the population of the Earth. The few people, like Elon Musk, on this small blue planet have helped us get to the place where we can reach that possibility in the next ten years. That possibility of creating new life for everyone on the planet.
