“You want to wake up in the morning and think the future is going to be great – and that’s what being a spacefaring civilization is all about. It’s about believing in the future and thinking that the future will be better than the past. And I can’t think of anything more exciting than going out there and being among the stars.” Elon Musk.

Since Elon Musk asserted that colonizing Mars is possible on International Astronautical Congress in Mexico in 2016 introducing his plan how SpaceX would colonize the Red Planet, this question is now a talk of the town that where the first people whom will be sent to Mars will live?

Though the news was quite short on detail but recently; some tidbits from Paul Wooster that the plan SpaceX proposes takes in an unmanned robotic mission as soon as 2022, while the first human will migrate to the planet much later.

And it’s still in a little foggy that whether the robots will start colonizing the Red Planet or the voyagers would the first construction workers of the planet.

At the 21st annual Mars Society Convention in Pasadena, California, Wooster said that building up the colony on the Mars surface is like something where a lot of people beyond SpaceX can really contribute.

He also said, “Early on, they’re very valuable on the surface of Mars. You’d actually be having most of the ships stay and you’d be operating using the various systems on them to support the activities there, very much early on they’d be sitting there indefinitely.”

Entering into the atmosphere on Mars at about 7.5 kilometers per second, decelerate aerodynamically; the first rocket would land on the ideal places for putting in initial power, mining, and life support infrastructure.

It is planned that the first BFR rocket that would be sent to Mars would stay on the Martian surface as long as it becomes preciously needed means of transport than as a safety net on the planet. And the astronauts would be living outside while building the habitation, landing pads and other infrastructure.

But the mission’s fate lies on the BFR rocket which is still in process. And Elon Musk and Paul Wooster that BFR will succeed in the test launch under its belt following the footsteps of its antecedent. But the amazing thing is, once the BFR succeeds in its test flight and sails for the Red Planet, this would lead to a thriving city on Mars beginning with the initial missions.
