Gwynne Shotwell, President and COO of SpaceX, shared with us her vision of colonizing the Red Planet in an interview with CNBC. Her plans are very interesting but controversial.

The idea of ​​the SpaceX company is to reduce the costs of space missions and to colonize the Moon or Mars as quickly as possible, as well as to transform humanity into a space civilization that will permanently reside in the depths of space.

We already know Elon Musk's plans for the implementation of these visions, because he talks about them at every major conference. Meanwhile, now you will know the plans of someone who is even closer to SpaceX on a daily basis. It is Gwynne Shotwell, the company's president and chief operating officer.

In an interview a few days ago on CNBC, she talked about her extraordinary vision of colonizing the Red Planet and the priorities humanity should set for itself in terms of space exploration.

Shotwell believes that the best idea to build a colony on Mars will be to build the underground tunnels that Elon Musk's The Boring Company is trying to create on Earth. They will provide protection against deadly cosmic rays, inhospitable weather conditions, and will also store water ice and food.

Elon and Shotwell have a plan to build entire cities below the planet's surface. This is where normal life will take place. All this will be possible thanks to life support systems. Installed in the tunnels, they will allow you to breathe and function practically as it does on Earth now.

This concept also makes economic sense. Tunnel boreholes are much easier to perform and will consume less funds due to the fact that special bases that will protect against radiation, atmospheric phenomena and large temperature fluctuations are not built.

The operations director of SpaceX also believes that to protect humanity from the threat coming from space, we must send people to Mars as soon as possible and create an underground colony there that, if necessary, can help rebuild civilization on Earth.

SpaceX wants to carry out the first manned flight of the Starship ship next year. It is on its board, in 5 years time, the first astronauts will go to the Red Planet. These are the plans the company has. We will see it all together.
