It will be possible to fly to the Red Planet for 500 thousand dollars. Extravagant space tour company offers SpaceX. She suggested sending people to Mars using NASA and commercial organizations.
It is supposed to fly to the Red Planet with the help of the Falcon 9 rocket carrier and the Dragon ship. Both spaceships are created by SpaceX. 500 thousand dollars in payment for the flight will have to go to finance a well-designed system of space travel. Anyway, while SpaceX is deliberating, British businessman Richard Branson has already begun to bring his creative idea to life. True, he sends tourists only to orbit, and not to interplanetary travel, on the other hand, and the cost of the flight will be much cheaper - only 200 thousand dollars. Late last year, Branson opened the world's first commercial spaceport called America. The first flight to the stars will take place at the end of 2012.
At the beginning of next year it is planned to organize the first test flight, which will take place without passengers. Only cargo will go to space, people will “visit” the red planet much later. According to experts, this will happen in 10-15 years.
The editors of the Uznayvse.ru website note that flights into space are gradually becoming a reality for ordinary people and most likely, the situation will also develop further.
