Mars Colonial Transporter - IAC Announcement Promo+Zuckerman
Published on Aug 26, 2016
This video was made to promote the upcoming announcement of the Mars Colonial Transporter (MCT) architecture by Elon Musk at the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) on September 27, 2016.
We are at the cusp of a major inflection point in human history; the transition from being a single planet species to a multi-planetary one. This video is a tribute to the efforts of SpaceX and NASA to usher in this new era, and my hope is that it conveys the significance of Musk's announcement to a broader audience. The MCT is rumored to consist of the largest rocket ever constructed and the most sophisticated spacecraft ever developed, capable of transporting humans beyond the Earth-Moon system and landing on the surface of Mars.
If you find this video interesting I would encourage you to visit http://reddit.com/r/spacex
to learn more about the rumored MCT architecture, the challenges the system will face, and the methods that SpaceX may employ to overcome them. Members of the /r/SpaceX community will be attending the IAC to report on the MCT announcement, so make sure to visit /r/SpaceX on 2016-09-27 for the latest information and discussions about the MCT announcement as it happens.
Not an official video I believe.
But still interesting for us fans.
