Elon Musk has picked 'exciting' location he'd like to die where no human has died before

Elon Musk has picked 'exciting' location he'd like to die where no human has died before

The Tesla CEO doesn't want to be outdone, even in death.

Elon Musk is a man with a plan - in both life and death.

The Tesla CEO and SpaceX founder only turns 53 later this year, but he's not taking any chances when it comes to croaking it and has shared his intentions for where he'd like to meet his maker.

Of course, he doesn't want to be outdone, even in death.

That's why he's picked a place where no human has ever passed away before as the desired location for when he shuffles off this mortal coil. Any guesses? Take a look at this:

Don't get me wrong, Musk isn't planning on going anywhere anytime soon - but he's decided that when the day finally comes, he wants to be somewhere far, far away from any of us lot.

During a talk with the UAE Minister of Cabinet Affairs, Mohammad Al Gergawi, at the World Government Summit (WGS) in 2017, the tech tycoon discussed his longtime obsession with getting humans on Mars.

His company SpaceX is in the midst of developing a mode of transport for space travel, known as Starship, which would supposedly be capable of carrying up to 100 people and taking them up to the Red Planet.

Musk has already given us a glimpse of what the expedition would look like with simulation videos and intends for Starship to be a partially reusable aircraft that looks and feels like a commercial airline with short turnaround times.

He reckons Mars is one of 'Earth's closest habitable neighbours' that is there for the taking and promised that although the journey may be 'dangerous, uncomfortable and long', it would be a 'glorious adventure and an amazing experience'.

Musk is absolutely enthralled by the prospect of taking people to Mars and has previously discussed his plans for the place if the mission is indeed possible - which he insists it is, having pinned 2029 as the year it will happen.

The billionaire previously joked with podcaster Lex Fridman that he'd like the title 'emperor or god emperor' if he ruled the roost up there, before saying it would be a great opportunity to build a better government.

He envisions 'somewhat of a direct democracy', where people vote directly on issues instead of going to a representative government and would recommend 'keeping laws short'.

Musk laughed: "Long laws, it's like...there's something suspicious is going on if it's a long law. If the size of the law exceeds the word count of Lord of the Rings, then it's like - something's wrong."

You might have gathered by now that his fixation with the Red Planet has something to do with where he wants to joss it.

At the WGS in 2017, Al Gergawi asked Musk why his Mars-mania also translated into his desired place of death.

The SpaceX boss responded: "To be clear I don't want to die on Mars.

"I mean, we're all going to die someday. And if you're going to pick some place to die, then why not Mars? If we're born on Earth, why not die on Mars? Seems like maybe it would be quite exciting.

"I think given the choice of dying on Earth or dying on Mars, I'd say, 'Yeah sure, I'll die on Mars'. But it's not some kind of Mars death wish. And if I do die on Mars, I just don't want it to be on impact."

I bet the other 99 people he takes with him are hoping the same thing.
