Elon Musk reveals the likelihood of him flying to Mars


For the question of how likely it would be to have flown to Mars, made by the correspondent of the Axios program, HBO's network, where he was as a guest, Musk confidently replied: "70%." "I know exactly what to do, I'm talking about moving there," said the businessman.

The billionaire specified that his flight could be done in about 7 years, when the price of the ticket to Mars will be "about two hundred thousand dollars."

Meanwhile, Musk rejected the journalist's objection that for the rich, a trip to Mars could be considered a sort of escape from the troubles of this planet.

"No, because the likelihood of dying on Mars is much greater than on Earth," he said, explaining that there is a great threat to human life when traveling through so-called "deep space."

In addition, the founder of Space X added that even if someone manages to land alive on the red planet, "he will have to build the base."

"There are a lot of people who climb mountains, people die on Mount Everest all the time, they like to do that because of the challenge," Musk explained by way of comparison.
