SpaceX CEO Elon Musk announced a plan to deploy the rocket for interplanetary space trips for city trips on Earth.
With the BFR (Big F*cking Rocket), it must be possible to reach every city in the world within an hour. Most trips last less than thirty minutes.

According to Musk, most distances are completed in thirty minutes and a flight with the rocket should cost approximately the same as a regular plane ticket. He shows his vision in a concept video, which shows that, for example, the big rocket is flying to Shanghai in 39 minutes, at a speed of 27,000km / h. Because the rocket flies at an altitude where there is virtually no air resistance, the flights would be more economical than conventional aircraft.

The video also suggests other routes, such as Hong Kong - Singapore, London - Dubai or New York and Los Angeles - Toronto. All these trips last less than half an hour. The BFR is intended to rise and land from floating platforms at sea, near major cities. The actual rocket for city trips does not exist yet, but Musk says he hopes that its construction can begin in six or nine months.

Elon Musk announced his new, ambitious plan at the end of his presentation on the ITS, the Interplanetary Transport System, to be used to colonize Mars. The BFR is also the rocket that SpaceX wants to use for that.

I wonder when it will be ever safe enough to become an everyday 'normal' thing like planes do. it would be awesome to casually pay and ride in to rocket. also, it would OPEN up alot of possibilities for people. for example working to a far away place will be a reality, 15mins to rocket, 30mins flight, 15mins to office. = 1 hour travel time... Imagine people saying "damn I gonna be late, gonna miss my rocket flight!" Elon Musk is really a game changer. indeed a real life Tony Stark.

Screw the ecology, lets fly 3 people in a rocket between two cities. Meanewhile I'm getting buttf**ked with taxes because my car emitts 10 more grams of CO2 per kilometer than it should. God I hate this crap.

I'm sure not going to get excited by this "plan". I'll believe it when I see it..especially price-wise.

And considering how many government subsidies Musk got for cars, I dislike it even more. Like hell, he's an Ayn Rand fan (not that that would be much better...but at the very least he wouldn't a damn moocher and thief who makes products totally out of reach of the very taxpayers that propped him up. Even if you wanted to call that B.S. an "investment", it wasn't an investment for anyone but himself). Why people worship him is beyond me.

Actually, I do know. People - especially the media - are so obsessed with climate now that they ignore it when a guy is screwing everyone in the ass. /rant off
