SpaceX is quietly planning Mars-landing missions with the help of NASA and other spaceflight experts. It’s about time.
Elon Musk's rocket company, SpaceX, is building a huge spacecraft to send 100 people to Mars. To figure out how to use the Big Falcon Rocket, as it's called, SpaceX organized a workshop with NASA and other spaceflight experts at the University of Colorado Boulder, according to Ars Technica.

NASA wants to visit Mars, and Elon Musk and SpaceX want to colonize it, but traditional life support systems will quickly run out of food, water, air, and other supplies. Plants and bacteria can recycle astronaut waste while growing them food to eat, an approach called bioregenerative life support.
Experts are eager to know what life support systems SpaceX is researching to keep Martian explorers alive for years.
