Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos believe that the final frontier of space will soon be penetrated.
Musk (see excerpt above) intends to send people to Mars in eight years’ time. Bezos wants to zone space for industry.
“[Our rocket] is intended to carry astronauts to the International Space Station,” said Musk at the Code Conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. on Wednesday night. “But we are going to send one to Mars in 2018.”
