As far as big ideas go, serial entrepreneur Elon Musk has had some pretty monumental ones, particularly around space travel.
“One path is we stay on Earth forever, and then there will be some eventual extinction. The alternative is to become a multi-planetary species, which I hope you will agree is the right way to go.“
“The threshold for a self-sustaining city on Mars or a civilisation would be a million people,” he said. “If you can only go every two years and if you have 100 people per ship, that is 10,000 trips.”“Therefore, at least 100 people per trip is the right order of magnitude, and we may end up expanding the crew section and ultimately taking more like 200 or more people per flight in order to reduce the cost per person.”
Worried you’d get bored? Don’t even bloody think about it, mate, Elon is gonna make the whole thing a fucking ball.
