New update in Elon Musk’s rocket design can send humans to Mars

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk updated the design for a powerful rocket intended to propel a space vehicle that may help establish the human presence on Mars. The update in the design for the Big Falcon Rocket (BFR) was in an article published in the journal New Space. He explains the development of a large carbon fibre tank that has the capability of storing the cryogenic liquid oxygen and thus making refuelling possible while on-orbit.

Musk summarised his plans on Mission to Mars:
“Elon’s description of the Big Falcon Rocket, along with the stunning recent success of the Falcon 9 Heavy indicates just how far SpaceX has come in establishing the elements needed to dramatically lower the cost for deep space exploration,” said Scott Hubbard from Stanford University in the US.”I look forward to seeing SpaceX contribute to human exploration as well as near-term science goals like the Mars Sample Return,” said Hubbard, who is the Editor-in-Chief of New Space.
