Tickets to Mars will be able to afford many inhabitants of the Earth – Elon Musk

(ORDO NEWS) — The head of SpaceX Elon Musk said that the hypothetical price of 100 thousand dollars for a ticket to the Red Planet should be affordable for many inhabitants of the Earth. The Starship spacecraft, which is now being actively developed, will fly there.

Recall that SpaceX previously announced plans to build an autonomous settlement on Mars over the next decades. The largest Starship spacecraft in history should be ready for these purposes in the coming years.

If moving to Mars costs, for example, 100 thousand dollars, then I think that almost everyone can work to finally save 100 thousand and be able to go to the Red Planet if they want. We want to make it accessible to everyone, ” Musk told TED conference curator Chris Andersono.

During the interview, the billionaire also mentioned other funding options, including government programs and the possibility of obtaining a loan that can be used to relocate to another planet.

  • In the past, Musk has estimated the cost of a flight to Mars and back at between $100,000 and $500,000.
  • In 2020, he announced his intention to build 1,000 Starships over 10 years to send 1 million people to Mars by 2050 to build a fully autonomous city on the surface of the Red Planet.
  • Later, he also hinted that the first man could land on Mars as early as 2029.
