    IAC stands for International Astronautical Congress for those who don't know, and it's basically a huge meeting about space where all the major companies come together and talking about stuffz. Elon (CEO of SpaceX) did a presentation on the MCT (Mars Colonial Transporter) that they've been planning for a while...if you're interested take a look at the following video they released during the presentation:

    It is important to note that all the models you see in the video were taken directly from the engineering department at SpaceX, meaning they're not just "artist impressions", but actual planned models of how the MCT will look...

    Here's the full presentation if you're interested, definitely good to watch:

    Now finally, for the comedic part of this whole thing....the questions that Elon got asked when he finished...he had spent his whole presentation saying he can go into more details of the technical side of things during questions, but about 2 minutes into the question session, it was clear that wouldn't be happening. Have a look (Q & A starts at 1:04:41), warning, it's hard to listen to:
