There appear to be two schools of thought regarding commuter space travel: those who are terrified of the risks and would rather stay firmly planted on Earth and those who cannot wait for their first chance to travel beyond the stars. If you, like us, fall into that latter category, then today is a good day, because Elon Musk has just unveiled more information about SpaceX’s upcoming Big Falcon Rocket.

Via Twitter, the mad-scientist CEO has posted two new renders of the gargantuan craft, which appear to stay in line with everything we’ve heard about it up to this point. Far larger than a single-capsule rocket — standing 348 feet tall — this one will have up to 40 onboard cabins with seating for a whopping 100 people. And it will take those travelers outside of Earth’s atmosphere courtesy of 31 onboard Raptor engines (which create a whopping 5,400 tons of thrust). Even the capsule itself will house another seven engines to help it traverse the universe. Looks like a Mars colony might be closer than we once thought.
