Once upon a time, space, stars and galaxies were the backdrop for a romantic movie. But along came Elon Musk, and now space is teeming with a start-up CEO and an entire Mars colony project. Well, dear readers, today I am going to tell you about a man who declared his love for the sky: Elon Musk.
Elon showed the world, "Why should I just roam the Earth, I can have a home on Mars!" Jokes aside, Musk's Mars dreams are one of the most ambitious space projects in history. However, as romantic and exciting as the idea of "owning a home among the stars" may seem, it is worth facing reality a bit more.
Those who support Elon Musk's Mars colony dreams say, "Why not?" However, don't people ask, "What about the first caravan that will move to this colony, what kind of WiFi signal will they find there?" Musk is launching projects like Starlink to speed up the internet in space and bring some Netflix home to the colonists. This will allow Martians to keep up with popular TV shows they missed on Earth.
Of course, Musk's space cars are a bonus. He offers his girlfriend not a Tesla, but a wish list of "take me to Mars". The launch of these vehicles on the surface of Mars could lead to a NASA statement like "One small step for humanity, one giant childhood dream come true for Elon".
All in all, Elon Musk's Mars projects are like something out of a science fiction movie script.
However, the realization of these ideas in real life is likely to push the boundaries of science, technology and finance. Elon Musk may be a man in love with space, but the first people to move to Mars should probably consider a little more travel insurance.Hopefully Mars will be a new beginning for humanity, because Elon doesn't deny his desire to name the new star in the sky.
