Race to Mars, Probably Not Tesla Driven !?

We (non-astronauts) may reach Mars within this lifetime. Elon Musk (CEO of Tesla Motors, and integral component of Paypal, and Solarcity among others) has been very public as of late with the intention to colonize Mars. Some sources seem to think he may even step down from Tesla, to focus entirely on SpaceX (his private space travel company). The Race to Mars and beyond Earth isn’t only the dream of Elon and his SpaceX program; Amazon founder Jeff Bezos  has the vessel Blue Origin New Shepard, John D Carmack (CTO Oculus VR),has his eyes on a lunar landing too, and Richard Branson (Virgin Atlantic) is focused on tourism with Virgin Galactic project to name a few. Boeing has made direct comments confidently aspiring to trump Elon’s SpaceX Mars ambitions stating, ”I’m convinced that the first person to step foot on Mars will arrive there riding on a Boeing rocket.”
