SpaceX Mars Mission Rumours In Over Drive After Journalist Tweets 'The Most Exciting Thing Ever'

Christmas has come early for space enthusiasts.

Chris Bergin, managing editor of space publication NASA Spaceflight.com, sent out a tickling tweet yesterday after he met with SpaceX.

Admittedly, even Bergin though the tweet was vague.

However, that did not stop the rest of world from getting excited.

SpaceX CEO, Elon Musk has hinted in the past of grand plans to take us to Mars and build a hyper loop.

He founded the company in 2002 with the sole goal of enabling people to live on other planets.

However, Musk has his fingers in quite a few pies.

In September his car company, Tesla, unveiled its first electric family car complete with a biodefense weapon mode.

Musk's ideas are known for their grandeur and sometimes eccentric nature. So, we remain poised whatever "the most exciting thing" is - as longs as he's not planning to nuke Mars again.
