Elon Musk the owner of SpaceX who is disrupting space travel has set his eyes on travelling around Earth instead. Speaking in Australia, Musk unveiled his plans for a rocket ship named “BFR” which I think stands for Big Freaking Rocket, which is meant to propel any human being to anywhere on Earth within an hour.
If the concept becomes a reality, people can literally take that transport between New York and China within a short time frame and possibly reduce the need for relocation for work. Of course, who knows what the cost might be.
Musk says that if we are gunning for places like Mars, why not start from Earth. He went on to mention that a full fare of a seat for a journey like that is about the same as an economy class ticket on a plane.
SpaceX has already revolutionised space travel by creating the technology to reuse rockets and having a ready solution where a rocket can land back again on a platform in the sea paved the way for his BFR idea.
