Elon Musk Plans To Send A Million People To Mars By 2050

Elon Musk Plans To Send A Million People To Mars By 2050

Elon Musk has opened up about his plans to colonise Mars, revealing that he plans to send a million people to the Red Planet within the next 30 years.

In a series of tweets, Musk wrote that SpaceX will send three Starship flights a day - or around 1,000 a year - making a trip to Mars available to pretty much anyone who fancies it.

Musk wrote that travel to Mars 'needs to be such that anyone can go if they want, with loans available for those who don't have money'.

The billionaire also promised that there will be 'a lot of jobs on Mars!'

Extrapolating from the figures Musk posted on Twitter, one of his followers asked: "So a million people by 2050?" The tech billionaire replied: "Yes."

But before you pack your bags, it's important to remember that Starship - the craft designed to fly to Mars - isn't yet complete.

Musk said a new Starship prototype might be launched pretty soon - he tweeted last month to say 'first flight is hopefully two to three months away'.

Elon Musk Struggles To Recognise Reporter's Pronunciation Of His Baby's Name

Getting to Mars is only part of the problem, because to live on Mars people would obviously need food, water and - perhaps most importantly - oxygen. So there's still quite a few details to keep Musk busy until 2050.

And it could be a very busy few years for Musk, after his girlfriend Grimes seemingly revealed that she was pregnant earlier this month.

Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, shared a topless photo of herself showing a superimposed fetus on her stomach.

Alongside the photo she wrote: "I thought about censoring them for a hot minute haha (this may get taken down anyway) but the photo is so much less feral without the nipples.

"Plus being knocked up is a very feral & war-like state of being.

"Might as well be what it is. Plus most of my friends told me not to post them so then I was afflicted w reverse psychology.

"Interrogated my shame on it and decided it was sum weird internalized self hatred to feel uncomfortable abt my body [sic]."

Much she like assumed, the topless shot was taken down by Instagram, prompting Grimes to post a second, edited shot.

Although he's yet to comment on the pregnancy, Musk tweeted Grimes, saying simply: "x is y".
