Elon Musk has a net worth of nearly $ 200 billion. He recently sold all his possessions and valuable material goods to invest in his fast-growing companies SpaceX and Tesla, which are to make humanity environmentally friendly and turn us into an interplanetary civilization.
The billionaire already has detailed plans to build the first colony on Mars. His team of engineers from SpaceX is also building and testing the most powerful space transportation system in human history. The Starship ship and the SuperHeavy rocket are to be ready by the end of this year. The first test flight to orbit is also to take place in a few months, while next year the vehicles will be able to make their first flight around the moon.
Musk plans the first unmanned flight to the moon in 2022, and a manned one in 2023 or 2024. Meanwhile, when it comes to the Red Planet, it is unmanned in 2024, and manned in 2026. Experts believe that SpaceX will keep its word and these dates are very real. Work on Starship and SuperHeavy is progressing at a really fast pace in Boca China, Texas. In days we can expect a test flight of the next prototype, designated SN9.
SpaceX is working with NASA to create technologies needed not only for a manned flight to Mars, but also for life support systems on this inhospitable planet and the construction of the first colonies there. Musk wants to send up to a million people to Mars in the next 30 years. The transformation of Mars into a second Earth and the genetic modification of the first Martians will also be at stake.
The head of SpaceX has repeatedly emphasized that the law of the world is imperfect and must be changed. As he is unlikely to be able to do this on our planet, he intends to bring his own on Mars. Martian colonies will not obey the laws of the Earth. However, this does not mean that Musk wants lawlessness on Mars. We can expect it to be very liberal, because these are the values of the billionaire. It is supposed to be a home for everyone, regardless of their religion, race, gender or political option.
Many enthusiasts of the sci-fi genre and the conquest of space saw in Elon Musk’s plan a reference to many films and books and a chance to make their dreams come true. The first cities that will resemble the biblical Babylon are to be built on Mars. Everyone will be able to drink alcohol, take drugs and use the services of prostitutes. The Red Planet is to be a stop for travelers who travel through outer space in search of adventure.
SpaceX and NASA also have preliminary plans for the area where the first colony is to be built. Astronomers have designated areas that are more convenient for us, i.e. those located in mid-latitudes, where the areas are lower than in other parts of the planet. Arkadia seems to be the most promising. It is a plain in the Northern Hemisphere.
In the next decade, the construction of the Starlink space Internet will begin, which will not only enable fast communication between bases on Mars, but also between them and cities on the Earth or the Moon. Therefore, the 1920s promise to be extremely interesting. Elon Musk is a person who can finally make the visions spelled out in many books and sci-fi movies come true. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for it.
