Elon Musk said that on the way to or away from Mars or on the red planet itself, “many people may die.”
“You may die, it will be uncomfortable, and there may be no good food,” Musk said to Peter Diamandis, founder and chairman of the X Prize Science Discovery Foundation.
Musk said that the recruitment materials for potential space travelers should be noted that this will be “a difficult and dangerous journey, and you may not be able to resurrect.”
He said: “Going to Mars reads like an advertisement for Shackleton to go to the South Pole.”
He smiled and said, “To be honest, a bunch of people may die at the beginning.”
He said that this journey is “not for everyone,” and he said with a smile. “Volunteers only!”
Musk announced plans to send as many as 1 million people to Mars by 2050, but he did not disclose the news of their return to Earth. In February, Musk announced that Space X plans to send the first batch of “national” flight attendants to space by the end of 2021. Tech entrepreneur Jared Isaacman (Jared Isaacman) will lead the order, and Space X will pick three people to keep pace with him.
Musk is not the only billionaire looking for volunteers. A Japanese billionaire has booked a seat for his first private flight to the moon. He said that he is willing to bring eight companions and he will pay.
Yusaku Maezawa (Yusaku Maezawa) made a public call last month to a SpaceX rocket that hopes to join him, which will land on the moon in 2023.
“Are you satisfied with what you are doing now? By going into space, can you do better or even bigger things? If it sounds like you, please join me.” Maesawa explained in detail. Said in the video of the plan.
“I will pay for the entire journey. I have purchased all the seats, so it will be a private journey.” He said.
Maezawa, a 45-year-old e-commerce billionaire, said he is open to people with “various backgrounds.” He said that he initially thought of bringing the artist, but he “developed” since then.
He said in the video: “The more I think about it, the more ambiguous it becomes.” “And I started to think that maybe everyone in creative work can be called an artist.”
“That’s why I want to reach a broader and more diverse audience so that more people from all over the world have the opportunity to join this journey. If you consider yourself an artist, then you are an artist.
Maezawa said that there are two standards: “First, no matter what activity you are engaged in, as long as you go into space, I hope you can break through the predicament and help other people and the larger society in some way. I hope that this potential Of people attend.”
