Default Mars Base Alpha.....

Admit this is a bit tenuous but I thought it may be of interest:

During the SpaceX webstream this week about the plan to send a group of people round the moon Elon Musk mentioned he used to watch "Moon Base Alpha" (admittedly he then said "it never made much sense") and then complained about the fact that we still don't have a moon base.

It's since been followed by some images on twitter about the SpaceX plans for what now seems to be called "Mars Base Alpha" - which follows a trend of calling SpaceX stuff after Science Fiction vehicles etc (the "Falcon" rocket is from "Millenium Falcon", the first ship to go to Mars is apparently going to be "The Heart of Gold").

More info here:

and

the overall webcast (goes on a bit and you need to start at 26:30 due to the very long lead in):
