SpaceX is planning to send Dragons to Mars as early as 2018. Red Dragon missions will help inform the overall Mars architecture that will be unveiled later this year.

These missions will help demonstrate the technologies needed to land large payloads propulsively on Mars.

They'll land a bunch of dragons filled with tools and supplies before the sent one that lands people.

Would deceleration be feasible using deep water, and a vast column of properly spaced pockets of gas and timing a prolonged cushioned landing with less impact stress? Seems desireable for a stellear landing. Titanium electroplating to negate a little salt.

Falcon 9 successfully delivered THAICOM 8 to a Super Synchronous Transfer Orbit, with a high orbit of 91,000km. Orbital ATK has confirmed the spacecraft has acquired signal.

The first stage also landed successfully on our Of Course I Still Love You droneship in the Atlantic.

+Kiki Jewell The reason it makes sense to go to a higher altitude is because a plane change can be a pretty expensive maneuver in terms of delta V because you have to take out some of your existing velocity and put it back in a different direction. Your velocity is lower in a higher orbit, and for a sufficiently large plane change it actually makes sense to first go to a high orbit, do the plane change at apogee, then drop back to the apogee you want.

I hope Mars is run better than Earth. Learn from the mistakes. Get a good transparent, evidence based political establishment from the outset. Politics is the cancer of Earth.

AD Steele, they already have the goal to do this on Mars. Have you not seen the article on hydroponics and mars yet ?

Story
Tagline
SpaceX designs, manufactures and launches the world’s most advanced rockets and spacecraft.
Introduction

SpaceX designs, manufactures and launches the world’s most advanced rockets and spacecraft. The company was founded in 2002 by Elon Musk to revolutionize space transportation, with the ultimate goal of making life multiplanetary. In 2010, SpaceX became the first commercial company in history to send a spacecraft into orbit and return it safely to Earth. In May 2012, SpaceX again made history when its Dragon spacecraft became the first commercial vehicle to successfully attach to the International Space Station, something previously accomplished only by governments.  In October 2012 and March 2013, Dragon again successfully delivered cargo to and from the space station in its first two official cargo resupply missions for NASA.
