|Elon Musk says there Is a '70 %' chance he Will move to Mars|
In an interview to the Axios on HBO documentary collection, Musk stated there was a"70 percent" chance he will go to Mars.
There are a "recent series of discoveries" which have made it feasible, he explained. And as he triumphed earlier, it would probably be a one-way trip -- he hopes to"move. "
The executive rejected the notion that travel to Mars might be an "escape hatch for the wealthy" in its existing form. He noticed that an advertisement for visiting Mars would be"such as Shackleton's advertisement for going into the Antarctic," that (though probably not actual ) produced clear how hazardous and also the South Pole travel was.
Even if you make it to Mars, then you are going to spend all of your time building the foundation and trying hard to endure harsh circumstances, Musk said. And while it may be possible to return, it is far from ensured. Like scaling Everest, Musk thinks it is all about the"challenge."
He may have some grounds to be optimistic. Much of his hope no uncertainty revolves around the Starship (née BFR) along with his more comprehensive vision for Mars, however, there's also been work on lands, power and food sources that may make it feasible to remain on the Red Planet for protracted periods. While the components have not been into place, it can be more a matter of when people may go instead of whether it is going to happen in any way.
