SpaceX wants to try test flight to Mars in 2018

Posted on Wednesday, April 27 2016 @ 19:15:35 CEST by

SpaceX just announced they're planning to send their Red Dragon capsule to Mars as soon as 2018!

This privately-funded, unmanned mission will bring the company one step closer to achieving Elon Musk's goal to land humans on Mars, and to establish a colony on the red planet. The capsule will launch on the yet-to-be-completed Falcon Heavy rocket, indicating SpaceX may be one of the first customers of its new heavy-lift rocket. Not a lot of details are known but it seems this will be mainly a proof-of-concept mission to capture data.

The Red Dragon is a modified version of the capsule SpaceX sends to the International Space Station, the main difference is that Red Dragon is equipped with eight SuperDraco engines for a propulsive landing on the Martian surface, similar to how SpaceX lands its Falcon 9 rockets.

If successful, the Red Dragon will be the heaviest object ever to land on Mars.
