Elon Musk Outlines Plans For Space Internet, Says Human Colonies On Mars Would Need Internet Too

SpaceX founder Elon Musk, who recently announced plans to build a test track for a high-speed “hyperloop” transportation system, has now set his sights much higher. At a SpaceX event in Seattle on Friday, Musk told Bloomberg Businessweek that he is planning an ambitious project that would ensure Internet connectivity to the denizens of a future Martian colony -- one that he plans to establish in the coming decades.

“It will be important for Mars to have a global communications network as well … I think this needs to be done, and I don’t see anyone else doing it,” Musk reportedly said.
