Musk announcing his Mars vision.

SpaceX founder Elon Musk on Tuesday unveiled an insanely ambitious plan to move a million humans to a new city on Mars within a century or less. Is the guy nuts or just the visionary we need to become a multi-planetary species?

Discuss Musk's vision for moving us to Mars live on the CraveCast at 3 p.m. PT Tuesday.

Future colonists Kelsey Adams, Stephen Beacham, Bonnie Burton, Jeff Sparkman and Eric Mack will be on hand to review a presentation that will go down either as the start of a new era for humanity in space, or a classic example of hubris. Join the discussion to help us decide which is more likely.

Return to this page Tuesday at 3 p.m. PT, when we'll have a live stream of the show embedded below. You can also watch via YouTube or Livestream and join in the live chat room.
