Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX, is planning to launch a new rocket and spaceship that would help man land on Mars, in 7 years. The new rocket would be more powerful than the Saturn 5 rocket that took Nasa astronauts to the Moon. Musk called it BFR (The “B” stands for “big”; the “R” is for “rocket.”) For Mars colonists, the rocket would lift a spaceship with 40 cabins; and with two to three people per cabin, it would carry about 100 people per flight.
