Finding Water on Other Planets – level 1

27-10-2017 15:00

Elon Musk owns SpaceX. SpaceX makes rockets. Musk and SpaceX want to fly to space and to Mars.

He speaks at a conference. He says that the first goal is to find water in space. In 2022 and 2024, four cargo SpaceX rockets will go to Mars. They will bring everything that people will need to Mars.

In 2024, two rockets with 100 people each will take off. They will also fly to Mars. These people will build a city there. Elon Musk hopes that the city will be nice.

Difficult words: conference (a formal meeting of people), cargo (things for construction, and things that people need), will (in the future).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
