Fun and Games on the SpaceX Interplanetary Travel System

As SpaceX works toward launching humans into space—first with astronauts to the International Space Station in the next few years, under contract with NASA which will yield incredibly valuable information in return—founder Elon Musk’s vision extends beyond cost-saving, reusable rockets. In his master plan to take people to Mars, he’s recently shared with the New Science journal that he hopes for a very comfortable, engaging flight on the months-long experience. “The crew compartment or the occupant compartment is set up so that you can do zero-gravity games—you can float around,” Musk wrote, observed by Mashable. Further. “There will be movies, lecture halls, cabins, and a restaurant. It will be really fun to go.”
