Multi-planet species? Elon Mask votes 'Yes!'

Elon Musk is hoping to have some paying pals on Mars by the year 2025. 

Feeling that this is of utmost importance to humanity, Musk explains:  Do we want a future when we’re forever confined to one planet until some eventual extinction event… Or do we want to become a multi-planet species?

Musk votes a hearty “Yes!” for the latter.   He intends to personally visit the International
Space Station within the next five years.  If this seems like a lofty goal, Musk begs to differ. “It’s not that hard to float around,” he says.

This might be the case (or not), but landing a rocket could be a whole lot tougher. Musk’s most recent attempt to land a Space X rocket “on a floating platform known as a droneship” went up in flames.
