SpaceX pioneer Elon Musk admitted in an interview this week that “many people are in danger of dying” on his mission to bring tourists to Mars.
“You might die.” “It will be uncomfortable and there will probably not be good food,” said Peter Diamandis, founder and president of the X Prize Foundation for Scientific Discovery.
Musk made the remarks, laughing at the fact that his mission was “an escape hatch for the rich.”
The billionaire founder of Tesla also acknowledged that the ad related to the mission should indicate that it will be a “difficult and dangerous journey where you may not be able to return alive,” he said.
“Frankly, a lot of people risk dying in the beginning,” he said, while insisting that it would be “a glorious adventure and a great experience.”
“Not for everyone,” he added, still laughing. For volunteers only! “
Elon Musk’s space company has created more than 100 rockets in the past decade, aiming to capitalize on their efforts to bring tourists to the moon and Mars, but many prototypes have exploded.
However, last December, the businessman predicted that his company would succeed in bringing people to the Red Planet by 2026.
