Humans will reach Mars by the end of the 2020s, according to SpaceX's president and COO.
Gwynne Shotwell remarked in an interview with CNBC that she believes people will be on the moon "sooner."
Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX, predicted something similar in December.
Humans will reach Mars by the end of the 2020s, according to SpaceX's president and chief operating officer.
"We should send people on the surface of Mars within a decade," Gwynne Shotwell stated in an interview with CNBC.
"I believe it will be in this decade, definitely," she continued.
"I think we need to get a significant delivery to the surface of Mars," Shotwell continued, "and then people will start thinking harder about it." "I think within five or six years, people will understand that that will be a real destination to travel," he added.
