Elon Musk details his vision of life on Mars

Space X founder and CEO Elon Musk gave more details about plans to colonize Mars on Sunday during an AMA session on Reddit.

Musk’s ambitious plans, laid out last month at an international space conference in Mexico, include using reusable rockets to launch a fleet of spaceships to establish a base on the Red Plant, creating a colony with 1 million people over the course of 100 years. Musk hopes to launch an unmanned mission as soon as 2018, and a manned mission in 2024.

On Sunday, Musk said the first manned mission, with about a dozen people, would create a base and set up a propellant plant for refueling.
