语篇导读: 近日,spacex总裁elon musk告诉大众,他们将在2019年向火星发射火箭。

elon musk, the founder and ceo of spacex, has suggested that his company will be ready to fly a rocket to mars in 2019.

"what i can tell you is that we are building the first mars rocket right now," musk told the crowd at the south by southwest (sxsw) festival in austin, texas.

"and i think we'll be able to do short flights, like up-and-down flights, probably sometime in the first half of next year," he said.

however, the tesla founder said, "people have told me that my timelines historically have been optimistic, so i'm trying to recalibrate (重新校准) to some degree here."

the spacex project was announced in september 2017, with the aim of sending a cargo mission (货物太空飞行任务) to mars by 2022. the final objective for musk and the company is to set up a human colony (定居点) on mars, and he said last year that human landings on mars could happen by 2024.

coming off the back of the successful launch (发射) of the falcon heavy rocket, musk said that he hoped the rocket spacex would launch to mars, the bfr, would produce followers.

"the biggest thing that would be helpful is just general support and encouragement and goodwill," musk said. "i think once we build it we'll have something that other companies and countries can go and do. they don't think it's possible, but if we do it they'll up their game".

spacex's next rocket system, the bfr, will be more powerful than the falcon heavy, and the aim is for it to be fully reusable, according to the company. musk said he is "confident" that such a flight would cost less than the spacex falcon 1 launches, which he said cost between $5m and $6m.
