    How many colonists per payload, Michel?

  2. Hi Gary! 100. It’s Elron Musk’s magic number. He’s aiming for a 500 000$ cost. Straight fuel costs are about 40-50 000$, the rest is financing, development and the parts that don’t come back. It depends on managing to land the boosters

    Which is, as the guy says, ‘close but no cigar’.
    Definitively the most exciting development in space in the last decade.
