SpaceX Founder, CEO, and Lead Designer Elon Musk will discuss the long-term technical challenges that need to be solved to support the creation of a permanent, self-sustaining human presence on Mars. The technical presentation will focus on potential architectures for sustaining humans on the Red Planet that industry, government and the scientific community can collaborate on in the years ahead.


According to Elon Musk, humanity is facing "two fundamental paths":

"One is that we stay on we stay on Earth forever and then there will be an inevitable extinction event... The alternative is to become a spacefaring civilization, and a multi-planetary species.”
