Elon Musk, the visionary billionaire and CEO of Space X has a dream of putting humans on Mars this century. It is certainly an optimistic dream, but one that does have some semblance of reality to it. The first phase of his plan will mean building a huge rocket that generates a massive amount of thrust for liftoff. The rocket will then return to earth after placing the spaceship into orbit, and will then bring a refueling tank back to the orbit.

The rocket is going to have to make a few trips, till the spaceship has enough fuel to go to Mars without running out of fuel. The only way a trip to Mars would be viable is by waiting for a window that occurs once every 26 years, where Earth and Mars are close enough to make a trip possible.
