Elon Musk is a man with very bold plans. In 2020, he announced that he expects to send the first man to Mars as early as 2029. And by 2050, Musk was going to build 1,000 SpaceX rockets that would pave the way to the red planet for another million colonizers. Moreover, the billionaire promised to sell tickets to everyone.
In a recent interview with Elon Musk, they asked how much such a ticket would cost? To this, Musk replied that everything would depend on economic factors, but the flight to Mars must be affordable, otherwise it would not work to attract a million people to colonize the planet. The billionaire even named the estimated cost of the flight – 100 thousand dollars .
According to Elon Musk, anyone can earn such an amount if they save. Well, if you can’t save up, the head of SpaceX advises getting a loan. Musk’s words can be taken mockingly, because what is 100 thousand dollars for the richest man in the world?
But perhaps the billionaire meant that future space travelers would fly one way and, in addition to savings, would be forced to sell their property. Then for an American with a good salary and real estate, the amount really looks feasible. But those wishing to fly to Mars from less developed countries can only sympathize.
