    Musk and Tesla has been written off by many in the past including some on this forum. Now he is the world's second richest man (well if you don't count the Rothschilds and Rockefellers etc.;)).

    Tesla is the world's most valuable car company by far.

    It would be amazing if they can actually pull this off!

    I am not shocked. It'll be interesting to see if he pulls it off.

    I do wonder how they intend to overcome the lack of necessary technology. It would be serious innovation in a short period of time. Specifically thinking about the prolonged life in a Zero G environment, gamma/radiation exposure issues, and all the uber complicated things I have no experience or knowledge of.

    I believe he’ll send them there.

    whether or not they’ll make it back is the question

    What is crazy is that less than 50% of all Mars missions, including just orbital insertions have been successful.
    I can only see a one way trip at best with what we have now. Probably will have to line the spacecraft walls with water and waste as protection from radiation.
    But between cancer and people going crazy from the cramped conditions I don't see them having happy long lives.

    Yes, ALL of them! LOL.

    That's a very ambitious time line, but he'll try hard to do it. Question is, will he find volunteers to go on a probable one-way suicide run to Mars. There are things that money cannot buy, although it helps when pulling resources together for a really, really ambitious and nearly impossible venture like this one. I don't personally believe he'll succeed in sending humans (LIVE humans) to Mars by 2026. Too many big obstacles and challenges to overcome.

    Some of you may die, but that is a sacrifice I am willing to make.

    Remember:

    One tiny crack in the hull and our blood boils in thirteen seconds. Solar flare might crop up, cook us in our seats. And wait'll you're sitting pretty with a case of Andorian shingles, see if you're still so relaxed when your eyeballs are bleeding. Space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence.
