Elon Musk suggests SpaceX is scrapping its plans to land Dragon capsules on Mars Video Description

The decision means SpaceX’s Dragon capsules will stick to landing with parachutes here on Earth, too. That’s the current method SpaceX uses to land its cargo Dragon capsule, a version of the vehicle used to deliver supplies to and from the International Space Station. The company has been working on an updated version of the capsule called Dragon 2 that will eventually carry people back and forth from the ISS, and SpaceX hoped to have that vehicle land propulsively with people on board. Musk said now that’s not going happen, since the company will not be adding landing legs to the Dragon 2.
