|Fresh off SpaceX's historic return from the International Space Station, company founder Elon Musk said Friday that he would like to see humans settle Mars and become a "multi-planet species"... "You guys are the magicians of the 21st century. Don't let anything hold you back," he said. "Imagination is the limit ... go out there and create some magic." Musk made headlines last month when SpaceX became the first private company to make a roundtrip supply run to the space station -- a task that had been dominated by governments. With NASA's space shuttle fleet retired, the space agency is outsourcing the job to private industry. SpaceX's unmanned Dragon capsule splashed into the Pacific on May 31 after a virtually flawless nine-day test flight that included docking with the multibillion-dollar orbiting outpost and delivering a load of food, clothing and equipment to the astronauts aboard.|
