Elon Musk spoke about the hopes placed on the SpaceX project and the Starship platform. According to the businessman’s plans, the goal is to establish regular flights – three per day, which will result in 1000 flights a year, everyone will be able to take 100 tons outside the Earth. Then Musk began to dream about flying to Mars and sending people there.
Twitter users calculated that they were talking about sending a million people to Mars by 2050, and clarified this point with Ilon Mask. He confirmed their correctness. In addition, he mentioned similar figures earlier, discussing the topic of colonization of the Red Planet.
Musk believes that it is more correct to send ships to Mars at a time when our planets are at a minimum distance. And there will be plenty of work there.
