Recent weeks have seen Elon Musk unveil a whole host of new SpaceX ideas, with everything from a space suit to a rocket that would cut the New York to Hong Kong travel time down to an hour recently being floated as concepts. The entrepreneur’s latest project is arguably his most ambitious, as he has announced plans to build a base on the moon and a whole city on Mars within a decade.

The codenamed BFR (short for Big F*cking Rocket) will be able to hold 100 passengers, and four rockets are set to be sent to Mars by 2024.
