SpaceX reveals Big F***ing Rocket
SpaceX has revealed a promotional video for the BFR (Big F***ing Rocket), a future transport system that will enable passengers to reach any destination on Earth in less than one hour. In addition, it could eventually be used for trips to the Moon and Mars. Speaking at the International Astronautical Congress, CEO Elon Musk said that he plans to colonise Mars by making SpaceX's entire fleet of vehicles – the Falcon 9, Falcon Heavy and Dragon spacecraft – obsolete. SpaceX will, instead, focus all of its resources into developing the Interplanetary Transport System (codenamed BFR).
