Always the man of mystery, Elon Musk is building the excitement ahead of his presentation later this week about just how humans will travel to and live on Mars.

The SpaceX chief will be presenting an updated vision for his plan to get humans to Mars at the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) conference in Adelaide, Australia, on Friday afternoon.

"Will be unveiling the new version on Friday afternoon at IAC Adelaide," Musk says on his Instagram account. "Certain aspects of the new design and its applications will be unexpected."

Ahead of his presentation on Friday, Musk shared the SpaceX simulation of an interplanetary transportation system released this time last year. It's pretty amazing to watch.

The need to get to find a way to live on Mars is a practical necessity according to Musk. He has said "there will be some eventual extinction event" on Earth making the current home of humans uninhabitable.

Precisely as Musk would have, we will be anxiously awaiting his updated plan.
