The 67th International Astronautical Congress, to be held in Guadalajara, Mexico, from 26-30 September 2016 will welcome SpaceX founder, CEO, and Lead Designer Elon Musk.

On the second day of the IAC, during a special keynote entitled “Making Humans a Multiplanetary Species”, Musk will discuss the long-term technical challenges that need to be solved to support the creation of a permanent, self-sustaining human presence on Mars. The technical presentation will focus on potential architectures for colonizing the Red Planet that industry, government and the scientific community can collaborate on in the years ahead.
