Report: SpaceX's Mars Budget More Than $300M
A set of recent reports say that Hawthorne-based SpaceX is planning to spend more than $300M to deliver its Red Dragon spacecraft to Mars. NASA will be contributing another, $32M in staff hours and technical hours to support SpaceX in its efforts, according to those reports. The NASA efforts apparently will tap into the staff at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, who will apparently assist SpaceX in plotting its trajectory to Mars.
