Elon Musk, SpaceX founder, has revealed that it is certainly possible to shuttle off humans to Mars in 10 to 12 years.

According to CNBC, the inventor said that the thing which matters in the long run is to have a self-sustaining city on Mars, to make life multiplanetary but he is hopeful that the first people could be taken to Mars in 10 to 12 years, CNet reported.

A private company founded by Musk in 2002, SpaceX designs, builds and launches spacecrafts and rockets into low-Earth orbit. The company's goal is to one-day send humans into space so that they can live on other planets.

SpaceX has been using its Dragon spacecrafts for regularly scheduled cargo deliveries to the ISS but now they also want to carry astronauts to and from space with its cutting edge Dragon V2 spacecraft.
