Elon unveiling the big SpaceX Mars ITS (aka BFR) Rocket today

Here's my collection of photos and quotes from Elon Musk's SpaceX announcement of how we become a multi planetary species, today in Guadalajara, Mexico at the International Astronautical Conference.

 

4x the Saturn V, with a $140K roundtrip cost to Mars. 42 engines on the booster, of course! First ship will be the "Heart of Gold."

Here's the simulation video and the full talk with Q&A.
