Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk is "highly confident" that his company will have landed people on Mars by 2026. This was reported by CNBC.

If we get lucky, maybe four years. We want to send an uncrewed vehicle there in two years. If things go super well, landing people on Mars might be kind of in the 10-year timeframe,” Musk stated.

The entrepreneur also added that SpaceX’s development of its Starship rocket was a key element in that process. It is supposed to launch cargo and as many as 100 people at a time.

As we reported earlier, NASA is currently working on the Artemis Space Launch System, which will provide the return of a human to the Moon in 2024.

The first flight of Artemis is planned for 2021; however, it will be unpiloted. According to the plan, in three years, people will fly to the earth satellite – for the first time in almost 40 years.

Besides, in 2026, it is planned to start another long-term project – to prepare the launch of the project on the construction of the nuclear power plant on the surface of the Moon.
