Elon Musk plan to transport passengers around Earth in less than 60 mins

September 30, 2017



Elon Musk Space X founder and billionaire has revealed a plan to transport people anywhere around the world, travelling most long and distant trips in less than one hour. This will be achieved using new spacecraft he's designed by Space X and code named "BFR". There are not much details about when the journeys might actually be available.

On space conference which happened in Australia, Musk said that company developing technology to transport people to different places on Earth in insanely fast times. Musk also showed a graphic simulation of people boarding a rocket in New York that blasted off into space and then came back down to land in Shanghai.

Also mentioning the rocket would travel at an insanely fast speed of 27000 km/h in the space and as there's no friction, so once will be out of the atmosphere ride will be just as smooth as silk. He predicted that most journey points in the planet would be less than 30 Minutes and none longer than hour. Additionally Musk told that cost per seat would be about the same as full fare economy in an aircraft.

This comes after Musk teased idea of landing cargo ships on Mars by 2022 and following by humans by 2024. The company is developing re-usable rockets for these missions. Elon Musk is a billionaire who is proposing ways to speed up travel by developing "Hyperloop" network in which travelers will be transported through tube at an massive speed of 700 mph or 1100 kph, thus covering distance of about 230 miles apart, in just 29 minutes. Unlike the Mars missions, there is not much details of when these sci-fi journeys could become a reality.
