This is a rendering of SpaceX’s Interplanetary Transport System (ITS)

It was originally devised to help humans colonize Mars

But SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has even bigger aspirations

“This basic system, provided we have filling stations along the way, means full access to the entire, greater solar system.”

That’s right, the ENTIRE SOLAR SYSTEM!!!

In Stage One, the spaceship will be blasted into obit by a booster

Which will then head back to earth to pick up fuel

So that it can refill the spaceship for its journey to Mars

Solar arrays generating 200kW of power will help propel the spaceship
