The head of SpaceX, a space exploration company, is laying out a plan for humans to colonize Mars, the planet. And Elon Musk says this could happen in 50 to 150 years, though he wants to get it started, sending the first humans to Mars in the year 2024.

美国太空探索公司SpaceX,正在制定计划让人类来殖民火星。伊隆·马斯克表示,尽管可能在2024年将首个人送上火星,但是人类要殖民火星可能还需要50到150年。

ELON MUSK, CEO TESLA MOTORS: I think there are two main motivations for Mars. I mean, one is, is the sort of defense reason of saying, OK, if something would have happened to Earth, is live as we know it, does it end? Or if it`s on another planet, then it probably doesn`t end.

伊隆•马斯克:我觉得人类想要殖民地球有两大动力:其中一个原因是因为自卫,如果以后地球出现什么问题,这意味着人类的终结吗?如果我们人类之后生活到其他星球上,那么人类就可能不会终结。

Multi-planet civilization is likely to last a lot longer than a single civilization.

多星球的文明可能比单个地球文明持续的时间要长些。

The other part of it is, just being an incredible adventure. It would be a very exciting and even if somebody never plan to go to Mars, just following the progress I think would -- vicariously would be quite aspiring.

而另外一个动力是因为不可思议的冒险。因为从没有人计划去火星,按照现在的进度我想将会非常的刺激、兴奋。

AZUZ: But at the moment, quite expensive. Musk says it costs $10 billion to get someone there with today`s technology. He wants to get the price of a ticket down to $200,000 per person, through the development of newer and more advanced systems. He says, ultimately, the mission would need a combo of private and government funds.

阿祖兹:但是,现在,研究成本非常的昂贵。马斯克表示,用现在的技术将人类送到火星需要花费100亿美元。他希望通过更加新的先进的技术将票价降到20万美元/人。马斯克还表示

The downsides: Musk says that people wanting to go to Mars would have to be prepared to die, that the fatally risk would be high. Also, SpaceX is currently dealing with setbacks, like the explosion of one of its rockets on a launch pad earlier this month. But the company, like the U.S. government, is working to send people far beyond the moon.

负面消息:马斯克表示想要去火星的人们要做好死亡的准备,因为致命危险非常高。所以,SpaceX现在正在解决一些难题,例如,之前发射的过程中有一个火箭爆炸。但是美国政府正在致力于将人类送到月球以外的地方。
