Elon Musk admitted that “a group of people may die” in the race to Mars.
The pioneer of SpaceX made a straightforward prediction because he laughed at his planned mission to Mars as an “escape hatch for the rich.”
“You may die, it will be uncomfortable, and there may not be good food,” Musk told Peter Diamandis, founder and chairman of the X Prize Scientific Discovery Foundation. Said.
Musk chuckled and said that in the advertisements during the journey, it should be noted that this will be a “hard and dangerous journey, and you may not be able to resurrect.”
He said: “To be honest, there may be many deaths in the beginning.”
He emphasized that this is “not for everyone” and added another smile, “Volunteers only!”
In the past decade, Musk’s space company has launched more than 100 rockets to take tourists to the moon and Mars-but many unmanned prototypes have burned.
Nevertheless, Musk predicted in December that by 2026, his company will have humans on Mars.
In 2015, Musk discussed the issue of SpaceX placing a city on Mars after successfully landing the rocket. Then, he published a paper in June 2017 that made humans a multi-planetary species and proposed a plan to have up to 1 million people on Mars.
