    Elon Musk Will Sell All His Properties to Finance Colonization of Mars

    I love the idea of colonizing another planet or celestial body. The idea of starting fresh, without the issues of the past. The prospect of building a better society, than having to fix the one we have already. I envision that the future colonists will most certainly need to be successful people of merit.


    I hope Elon Musk hires someone else to design it. Remember how ugly the cyber truck was?


    If I had my way, I would make the first man-made structure on Mars, a classical-style Temple of Mars. That would be a greater accomplishment, than some soulless mass of metal and glass.

    If I were in my twenties I'd definitely sign up. I've always dreamed of it since I started reading science fiction in my teens; I still do.

    Only thing is I wouldn't want to be in a colony where Elon Musk picks the colonists; otherwise it's going to be the same old, same old.

    the societey we currently have doesn't seem too bad. and if it is unable to fix itself then it won't be better on mars.

    I think it will be better, because instead of rabble, you would have automation. Once most people lose their utility, there will be chaos on Earth. You will not have that issue on the colonies, because only the best and brightest will be there working higher order tasks.

    I hope that one day, there will be someone, or some group with the right sensibilities, that will charter the a flight to build a civilization that will surpass all others. As they say, the sky is the limit!

    Whats the nature like in Mars? Sea water? Forrests? Beautiful endless green fields?

    Elon seems a bit mental to me risking all his wealth and putting his entire focus on 1 useless mission.

    How about ending hunger in the world? It will cost him and NASA less. But of course they dont care about the immediate issues, they care about finding the beginning of the universe and colonizing Mars.

    Heartless childish bastards to say the least. Playing Star Wars in real life.
