Elon Musk's SpaceX is to introduce a spacecraft that will hopefully go to Mars. The maverick leader has set the highest of goals for his space agency.

The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX has plans to send a man on Mars within the next decade or so. Elon said that he will describe the architecture of the spacecraft that will get the job done.

He was speaking before an audience in Hong Kong at the StartmeupHK Festival in Hong Kong this week. The plans will be unveiled in Mexico later on. Musk admitted that it would be a thrilling proposal. 

According to NBC News, Musk said, "I don't think it's that hard, honestly. It's not that hard to float around."

The first flight to Mars would probably take place around 2025. The CEO of SpaceX spoke of how the visit to Mars may lead to other bigger things. He ultimately wanted to build a city on the Red Planet.

This would not only make the survival of the human race a sure possibility but would also lead on to great adventures.

The inspiration and excitement it would hold in store for us earthlings will be beyond the normal adrenalizing experience. Elon said that it was a basic choice that humankind had to make as a culture.  

The sort of future we wanted was crucial in the mix. Nobody wanted to be confined to a single planet where extinction and utter annihilation stared us right in the face.

Rather we probably wanted to have our species spread throughout the solar system and even to other stars. Such were our dreams and we ought to never give up on our dreams.

For Musk, Mars was the planet most likely to harbor human beings in the future. It was the only planet where even a city may get built within the next few decades. It was indeed a possibility. 

From this city on Mars, we might make other spacecraft and launch on a journey that never ends. We could inhabit other solar systems and stars and virtually populate the universe with our species.

Musk himself wanted to visit the ISS five years from now. Elon Musk is a genius who is way ahead of his time. He is literally brimming with ideas.

As a hero of economic life, he wants to invest in several sectors that are the wave of the future. They include: electric airlines, genetic engineering and bionics. Musk believes these fields have a lot to offer were they fully explored for what they are worth.
