Elon Musk said that in the worst case scenario, SpaceX would bring humans to Mars in 10 years.
Spaceship engineering and cost reduction are crucial factors. Lex Friedman added, “Tickets for Mars cannot be obtained.
Elon Musk said that SpaceX would bring people to Mars in 10 years with its Starship rocket, in the worst case scenario, the billionaire replied: “The best case is about five years, the worst case is 10 years.
Musk told Friedman that crucial factors included the design of the vehicle, adding that “Starship is the most complex and advanced rocket ever.”
“The basic optimization of the starship is to reduce the cost per ton for orbit and ultimately the cost per ton for the surface of Mars,” Musk told Friedman on the podcast. Millions of dollars, Musk told Friedman.
“Money can’t buy a ticket to Mars,” he said on the podcast. The CEOs of SpaceX and Tesla have predicted multiple dates for their company’s arrival and landing on the Red Planet.
Musk said in an interview with the Clubhouse Audio App in February that it would be “five and a half years” before the manned spaceX space mission.
The missile could land on the Red Planet. Musk tweeted in March that his aerospace company would launch its Starship missiles on Mars “long before 2030”.
SpaceX will land a starship on Mars before 2030. Really hard threshold Mars base alpha is self-sustaining.

Experts say that if things do not go as planned during the remaining three launch opportunities before 2026, it may take longer than expected.
Musk is finally planning to build 1,000 Starship missiles, three of which will launch in three days, bringing one million people to the Red Planet.
