Some love him, others hate him, but what is certain is that this somewhat quirky man will not leave anyone indifferent! He’s also at the top of the world’s greatest fortune … He has just sent his SpaceX rocket into space with Thomas Pesquet, the French favorite astronaut, on board.
And he obviously runs the Tesla company, the flagship of the electric car. This can no longer be proven. We’re talking about Elon Musk, of course, and one of his new, harrowing announcements! Yes, he will send a lot of people to Mars, but there will be deaths! In any case, this is Musk’s warning in one of his recent interviews.
When Elon Musk sits at the microphone of Peter Diamandis, the American co-founder and president of the X PRIZE Foundation based in Culver City, California, he admits. Musk’s mission to Mars is slated to take place in 2024, but he admits that “many people are at risk of death” if they go to Mars. He also warns that the trip will not be a fitness trail and that the food will not be very good! Do not you want that?
Musk, a space enthusiast?
2024 is tomorrow, and that date seems fanciful to all scientists for a trip to Mars. But Musk has been planning these interplanetary trips for years. In particular with the development of the Super Heavy Booster and the Starship ship in California.

SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk is currently preparing the first manned mission to Mars. And that from 2024. If this deadline seems unthinkable, the businessman has been preparing these interplanetary journeys for several years. The two prototypes are already undergoing numerous tests and, like the SN10, they even happen to explode last March.
Musk’s critics call the Mars mission an “escape hatch for the rich”! But Musk explains, “You could die. It will be uncomfortable and there will likely not be good food ”and it will be the opportunity of“ a difficult and dangerous journey that you may not be able to return alive ”. Then he still insists that it will also be an occasion for “a wonderful adventure and experience for volunteers only”! So you still want to be the first Earthlings to set foot on Mars at the risk of turning your feet forward to Earth?
