The Falcon has landed

Finally the future looks exciting again

In an epic launch on 21st December 2015, Elon Musk’s company SpaceX blasted a two-stage Falcon 9 rocket into space, the upper stage released eleven satellites into orbit. The first stage returned back to Earth in an absolutely amazing night landing. It was a significant step forward in mankind becoming multi-planetary. This is Musk’s goal, and one that is truly inspiring.

Mankind and possibly all life on Earth is a risk from many multi-species eradicating events – from satellite collision, viruses, global warming, nuclear war to volcanic disaster. It’s a low risk but as far as we know humans are the only intelligent life in the universe, in fact the only life is on Earth. We should be working hard to preserve the unique treasure that is life. A universe without life would be a dull universe indeed.

Musk wants to get us to Mars in less than a decade, faster than Nasa plans by a long way. He wants to do it commercially charging $500k per person per ticket, he thinks people will pay and I think they will too.

Mars missions would be mankind’s greatest adventure, more exciting by a long way than the Moon landings. With so many challenges facing mankind, we all need to feel that the future will be better than today. Elon Musk is working hard to make it so. I hope I live to see the SpaceX Mars landings.
